Corporate Wellness Challenge

The Milwaukee Running Festival Corporate Wellness Challenge provides an excellent opportunity to improve the health, wellness and corporate culture of your company. The Corporate Wellness program is for companies or clubs that are looking to encourage a healthy lifestyle while having fun in the process! The program makes it easy for the group organizer while providing the whole team multiple perks.

Invest in Your People – Invest in Your Business

Running and walking promote a healthy lifestyle. This in turn creates healthier employees who rely less on health insurance, which reduces medical insurance premium costs. This wellness program is a great way to boost company spirit and is a fun way for employees to interact outside of the office.

An investment in corporate wellness is an investment in your company’s success. The benefits of team fitness may surprise you:

  • Medical costs fall by $3.27 for every dollar spent on wellness
  • Companies with wellness programs see 28% fewer sick days taken
  • Wellness programs drive a 25% reduction in absenteeism
  • Companies with wellness programs see an 8% increase in productivity
  • 77% of employees attribute positive culture changes to health and wellness programs at work
  • Companies can increase employee satisfaction through wellness programs
