Montana Worksite Wellness
Miss fewer days of work
Are more productive
Have lower overall healthcare costs
Worksite wellness programs and policies have a substantial impact on health care costs, absenteeism, workers compensation costs, and productivity. To promote model worksite wellness programs in our state, there is a collaborative effort between the Cancer Control Program, Montana Tobacco Use Prevention Program (MTUPP), Nutrition and Physical Activity Program (NAPA), Arthritis Program, and Montana School Health Program.
If you are interested in finding out more on how to build or strengthen the worksite wellness program at your worksite please visit our Regional Contractors page.
