What types of companies come into a business and help improve wellness of employees?

Asked by pallen123 (1507 points ) November 6th, 2010

I’m trying to research what types of firms come into businesses and help their employees get more fit, stop smoking, lose weight, etc. Is there a name for these types of organizations? I know it’s not always the insurance companies that do this sort of work. Is there an association of these types of companies?

There are wellness coaching programs that do this; one that I can think of off the top of my head is LifeSynch.com. Many health insurance carriers offer wellness programs as a buy-up for employers. What you might want to look at is called an EAP – Employee Assistance Program.
