Simply having a wellness program does not ensure your employees will participate and become healthier. Rather, it requires a corporate culture of wellness. Making an investment in your employees’ well-being communicates they are valued members of your organization and encourages participation.
At Cairnstone Benefits Group, we believe a culture of wellness and employee engagement starts at the top. Senior leaders, who lead by example and emphasize a commitment to their employees’ health, are most successful in gaining employee engagement.
Caring, Comprehensive Approach
Cairnstone offers a comprehensive solution to empowering employees to make healthy lifestyle changes. Our certified wellness coaches take a holistic approach, ensuring every employee has the tools to achieve their personal wellness goals. Our coaches get to know your employees, guide them to set achievable goals, and help overcome barriers to success. We keep the focus on your employees, their needs, and the potential benefits the program offers to them.
Employee Readiness: Something for Everyone
People vary greatly in their readiness to change, so Cairnstone offers an array of activities to motivate, educate, and encourage employees at every stage. Variety is the key to employees staying engaged and avoiding boredom. From fun group activities and friendly competitions to a one-on-one personal health coach and entertaining education, there is something for everyone – regardless of where they are on their path to wellness.
Wellness programming falls into four pillars of support, and employees may choose multiple activities from each before adopting a healthy behavior as a way of life. Most people attempt healthy habits several times before they succeed, and our wellness coaches guide employees to the right tools and activities for them. The more information and support employees receive, the better prepared they are to make healthy decisions. Some example activities follow.
- Gym membership, on site exercise room
- Lunchtime yoga, walking group
- Smoking cessation support group
- Weight loss challenge
- Company sports leagues
- Annual health risk assessments
- Biometric health screenings

Way of life

When employees feel well with low stress, productivity goes up and sick days go down. Wellness programs impact employee health, attendance, productivity, morale, and health insurance benefit usage. Wellness is the foundation of your employee benefit package.
