Employees are constantly struggling for work-life balance, but a new study by Virgin Health Miles shows that 77% of employees feel that “health and wellness programs positively impact the culture at work.”

 

Chris Boyce, CEO of Virgin Health Miles, explains, “Employees become much more motivated and productive when they know that their employer cares about their total quality of life, which goes beyond traditional wellness and includes physical, emotional, financial and social health.”
