Workplace Wellness Toolkit

Did you know employers can improve the health and productivity of the workforce? Adopting a workplace wellness program has many benefits including:

  • Promoting healthy lifestyles
  • Preventing and reducing chronic disease
  • A positive effect on the company’s bottom line

Plus, employees who take part in these programs learn healthy habits, are more productive, and tend to have better morale—it’s a win-win!

The South Dakota Department of Health and its partners developed this toolkit for South Dakota employers. Use the information as a guide for health and wellness policy and environmental changes. The tools are customizable whether you are looking to:

  • Establish a new workplace wellness program
  • Enhance existing workplace policies

We want to help South Dakota businesses maintain active workplace wellness programs. For more tips, strategies, and educational resources, fill out our Workplace Wellness Contact Form. If you have questions along the way—be sure to reach out!
