A 2017 Virgin Pulse survey revealed that 85% of companies with wellness programs report positive support of employee engagement. Engaged employees tend to be involved, committed, and enthusiastic. Reversely, disengaged employees tend to "go through the motions" and can cost your company 34% of salary, or $3,400 for every $10,000, based on findings by Gallup. Virgin Pulse respondents also reported a positive effect on recruitment, retention, and company culture when they provided a wellness program.

THE WELL DRIVER SOLUTION
Tools and Resources That Make a Difference
Drivers are the lifeblood of your company. So are your dispatchers, dock workers, yard staff, and the rest of your safety and logistics team. Unfortunately, many of these jobs take a toll on an individual's overall health and wellbeing. Increased healthcare costs and lost productivity can also take a toll on your bottom line.
The Well Driver program is designed with the needs of your team in mind, providing transportation-focused tools and resources that help you facilitate a cost effective wellness program to your team.
Helping Your Team Get Started Right
Establish a culture of wellness at orientation to start your drivers on the road to better health from the beginning.
Helping Your Team Stay Health Focused
Provide ongoing health and wellness education throughout the year. Share information at safety meetings, in-service trainings, or as topics of the month.
Helping Your Drivers Be Prepared
Keep your experienced drivers by preparing them for their next DOT medical exam and help them get the longest medical cards possible.
Helping Your Team Make a Change
Encourage your team to become tobacco free. Provide support, encouragement, and accountability as they make a plan and take steps toward change.
EATING ON THE GO
Helping Your Drivers Eat Healthy
Eating on the road is a challenge. Provide your team with transportation specific information that helps them make healthier choices when selecting meals. Includes the Green Light Restaurant Guide with dozens of meals under 500 calories.
Helping Your Team Stay Motivated
Incorporate friendly competition with prepared challenges that keep your team engaged all year long.
COST EFFECTIVE TRANSPORTATION WELLNESS PROGRAM
COMPANY DIRECTED PROGRAM
Your safety team or wellness leader will have all the tools, resources, and support they need to provide a yearlong transportation-focused wellness program at a fraction of the cost of other programs.
You would never put a piece of equipment out on the road without knowing it had been properly maintained. What about the drivers you put behind the wheel?
RETURN ON INVESTMENT
Lowered medical costs, regained work time, longer DOT medical cards, and retention of experienced drivers as well as lowered accident rates, operating costs, and liability exposure are just some of the areas where you will see a positive return.
