Health and wellness, both at home and at work are more important than ever. With the benefits world in continuous flux — from the multitude of packages in today’s market to modern workforce demographics — staying ahead of the competition to recruit new talent and retain your existing workforce can be challenging.

There is good reason to place a high importance on wellness programs done right at work. A strong corporate culture is important to build a foundation of trust among current and former employees.

If a walk down to your human resources (HR) department feels more like you’re taking a trip to the principal’s office, then there might be a problem with company culture at your workplace. No one wants to work in fear that their every move is being watched and monitored. Micromanaging and other outdated management techniques do little to motivate employees and in fact most likely contributes to a stressful work environment.
