Worksite Wellness Programs Benefit Young Adult Workers, Not Just Older Employees

Adults under 35—and the businesses that employ them—greatly benefit from comprehensive worksite programs designed to maintain and improve employees’ health.

But adults under 35—and the businesses that employ them—greatly benefit from comprehensive worksite programs designed to maintain and improve employees’ health. That’s important because adults younger than 35 account for more than a quarter of the nation’s workforce.1 And despite their relatively young age, they face significant health risks. Getting and keeping these younger workers healthy is key to their long-term well-being. Businesses that recruit and hire them benefit as well, in terms of worker productivity and lower medical costs.

Interactive Health draws upon 25 years of experience and data from more than 3,000 clients to debunk three commonly-held misperceptions about the value of comprehensive employee wellness programs for young adult workers.
