It is no secret that healthy, happy and productive employees result in lower healthcare insurance costs, reduced turnover, higher attendance and higher profits.   While some SMBs may consider having a wellness program a luxury, many others are finding that an incentive-based program is a valuable asset.  "If you build it, they will come" is a valid philosophy when employees use the program to generate measureable results for your organization.

Easier said than done?   Not if you can induce your employees to achieve genuine behavior change through sustained long-term participation. Replacing old habits with new, healthier ways of living is a journey.   A successful wellness program is within reach -- if you avoid 10 common pitfalls common to most organizations:
