WorldatWork Sponsors Ninth Annual Employee Wellbeing Month

Organizations worldwide join the celebration this June to support workplace well-being

June 1, 2017 — WASHINGTON, D.C. — WorldatWork is proud to announce its participation in the ninth annual Employee Wellbeing Month (#EWM17), June 1 – 30. Employee Wellbeing Month is a time for employers and employees to bring healthy choices and habits into the workplace.

As the leading total rewards organization, WorldatWork knows that workplace culture plays a critical role in creating healthy employees and driving employee productivity and engagement that ultimately leads to a stronger business. Launched as National Employee Wellness Month in 2009 by Virgin Pulse, the month has evolved to bring more attention to integrated approaches to wellness and well-being.


Employee Wellbeing Month is brought to us by Virgin Pulse and sponsored by Strategies to Overcome and Prevent (STOP) Obesity Alliance, Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease, Obesity Medicine Association and WorldatWork.
