Corporate wellness programs are designed to encourage employees to participate in a health improvement program. Benefits associated with a corporate wellness program may include: a reduction in turnover and absenteeism, increased morale, improved recruitment potential, better health conditions of employees and health care cost containment.

Structural Wood Corporation is a wholesale distributor of structural wood products such as, Glu-Lam beams, I-joists and Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL). The workforce includes 6 female and 49 male employees with an age range of 18 to 69 years. The organization is interested in obtaining general information about wellness programming and identifying the needs/wants of their employees as they relate to wellness programming.

This project is based on a compilation of data collected through a comprehensive literature review and an employee opinion survey. The purpose of this thesis project is to provide Structural Wood Corporation with an introduction to wellness programming, identify the needs/wants of the employees as they relate to wellness programming and recommend potential wellness initiatives for possible implementation.
