In fact, the benefits of having a corporate wellness program goes beyond just the immediate positive results in employee happiness - it can also lead to less absenteeism, increased engagement, retention, productivity and cost savings over time. Check out the top 5 infographics of the week on tips and stats on employee wellness and health.
