HINGHAM, Mass., Dec. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wellness Workdays, a leader in corporate wellness programs, announces the inaugural Best Wellness Employer certification program. Developed by Wellness Workdays in collaboration with experts from Harvard Medical School, the initiative recognizes the significant accomplishments of employers dedicated to improving employee health and well-being and helps advance the field of worksite wellness by providing data and research about current practices and wellness outcomes.
"The certification was developed by industry experts to help employers gauge the overall assessment, strategy, implementation and evaluation of their wellness programs in order to promote an engaged workforce and a culture of well-being," said Debra Wein, founder and CEO of Wellness Workdays. "A Best Wellness Employer can validate their wellness efforts and outcomes to senior management, current and prospective employees, and insurance providers."
