The average employee spends more time at work than they do at home. Because of this fact, it is vital for employers to encourage and promote wellness at their place of business. Complete wellness entails physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, occupational and social aspects (for more information read here ). Employers can easily implement many of these aspects with little or no cost to themselves. The Knox County Health Department can provide educational materials, support and guidance to assist employers in making "well" choices for and with their employees. This website provides many resources to help you get started, but we also would love to speak with you personally. Feel free to contact us with questions or needs at 215-5170.
