Live Well Sioux Falls is expanding its promotion of healthy living into the work place.
Wednesday afternoon at the Washington Pavilion, 160 business owners from around Sioux Falls attended a seminar.
There they learned that the well-being of their employees is about much more than their physical health. Business owners learned it’s about treating employees right, having good communication, and positive leadership.
Many businesses currently use an incentive program to keep their employees physically healthy. In return for their good health, the employee gets better health insurance rates. But as business owners learned Wednesday, focusing on one area and not the entire person will cost them more money in the long run.
Using this new model has also proven to create more productivity in the work place.
