The article discusses the benefit that small companies can get out of wellness programs when they are tailored according to the need, wants and desires of a business. These programs can be more effective for a small business if they are kept simple and manageable. It is suggested that a collaboration with other local small businesses with the help of a broker can facilitate such businesses to start a wellness program at reduced costs.
