Bringing wellness to the small employer.

Author information

Maine Council for Worksite Wellness, Maine, USA.


Historically the predominant models of programming have evolved from mid to large size employer settings. Yet the majority of employees in any given community work for organizations that employ fewer than 500 employees. These small employers also constitute a disproportionate majority of all employers. Wellness practitioners need to develop programming models and strategies that are designed specifically for these small employer organizations. This article establishes a perspective for bringing wellness to the small employer based on recent research and considering the implications of the differences between small and large employers from a programming perspective. Finally, several anticipated aspects of future programming are described along with summary conclusions.
