A Healthy Workplace Has Its Rewards

an article by Kimberly-Clark Professional

Colds and flu - many companies consider them inevitable. At Kimberly-Clark Professional*, we believe they're preventable. It's our goal to make every workplace a healthy one by educating and equipping companies and employees with the tools they need to reduce the spread of germs. That's why we created The Healthy Workplace Project*, an innovative wellness program that allows you to use the same dollars you are spending on facility maintenance to create an effective employee engagement program that reduces the spread of germs and helps solve a costly problem for your tenants. Now we're rewarding wellness success with The Healthy Workplace Project* Award.

This award recognizes and rewards those companies that have made a commitment to better wellness in the workplace. This effort not only benefits employees, it also pays off for companies. Studies show that American employers lose up to 400 million work days annually due to illness, costing them approximately $48 billion in lost revenue.

The Healthy Workplace Project* Awards program will accept nominees through April 30, 2012. You don't have to be a Kimberly-Clark Professional*customer to win.  All entries are reviewed by a distinguished panel of 3rd party judges and the winners will be announced at the BOMA 2012 Every Building Conference & Expo.

Whether you win $5,000, $10,000 or $15,000 in prizes, you can choose from a host of top notch health and wellness services for your company! Services such as health counseling, cooking demonstrations, comprehensive health screenings, health coaching sessions, educational programs, even therapeutic massages! In addition, winners will receive a variety of KLEENEX® and SCOTT® products…All to make your winning workplace even healthier.
