MENLO PARK, Calif., Jan. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Companies that aren't focusing on employee health and wellness should make it a New Year's resolution. In a recent survey from staffing firm OfficeTeam, two-thirds of HR managers (66%) reported their organization has expanded their health and wellness offerings in the past five years. And these efforts haven't gone unnoticed: 89% of workers said their company is supportive of their wellness goals.

HR managers were also asked to name the most innovative thing they've heard of a company doing to support employee health and wellness. Here are some of their responses:
"Since professionals spend so much of their time at work, health and wellness programs aren't just a nice to have — they are becoming a key factor in employee job satisfaction and well-being," said Brandi Britton, a district president for OfficeTeam. "Not offering these benefits can put a company at a disadvantage when it comes to staff recruitment and retention."
