Corporate Wellness Program

Corporate Wellness

The Derby  Recreation Commission has long been known as the local expert on health  and wellness. With nationally certified fitness staff and recreation professionals, the Derby Recreation Commission is positioned to provide the support and expertise that a company would need to begin a workplace  wellness program.

We understand that skyrocketing health  care costs and escalating chronic disease rates place a huge economic  burden on business owners—yet 75% of America’s health care costs come from diseases that are preventable. A wellness program is an investment in your company’s most important asset—your employees.

A healthier workforce brings higher productivity, fewer work days  missed and lower health insurance costs. With rising health care costs  and the push to do more with less, the health of employees is a pivotal piece contributing to better productivity. An employee wellness program gives your employee benefit program one more attractive option, leading to  greater employee satisfaction, safety, recruitment and retention.

Let the Derby Recreation Commission’s workplace wellness team customize and develop a wellness program just for you. We have put together a variety of services that are free of charge, interactive and engaging. Even if you don’t have a DRC membership, we still want to partner with you to improve your employee’s health.
