Employee Wellness Programs

How can you decrease the stress that your employees are dealing with while improving their quality of life?

Your employees are stressed. They need a better balance of work and family life. Our humorous programs address issues that your employees deal with from workplace bullying, customer service, poor confidence, communication problems, etc...

Our Life Planning Series has seven workshops presented by a team of experts in the fields of healthcare, financial planning, estate planning, Medicaid planning, and Insurances. By providing critical information, your employees reduce their stress levels by knowing how to plan for their health, legal, financial, and emotional needs now and in the future.

What is the benefit to your company?

Often stress ties into loss of productivity in the workplace, mental health costs, and problems with co-workers as a result.

We empower your employees to plan and resolve issues that cause them anxiety. We give them the tools they need to make difficult decisions and a safe environment to practice new skills to resolve these issues. You can do this by bringing in Discuss Directives workshops. The benefit is a reduction in absenteeism, presenteeism, and your healthcare costs.

What should you expect?

Expect your employees to talk about these programs. By providing entertaining and informative programs, your employees will remember what they learned. The more an audience laughs and relates to the speaker, the more valuable the content is to the employee. As a result, they take action and make changes and plan for the future.
