There are currently 250 city employees ranging in age from 19 years to 67 years old. Forty percent of the employees are female and sixty percent are male.

Program Planning and Evaluation


Healthy work environment and healthy workers determines the success of an organization.
However, for decades, companies have been reporting losses resulting from absenteeism,
sickness, accidents, and violence from employees. The main problem has been anticipated to be
caused majorly by lifestyle diseases (Virtanen et al., 2018). As a result, business leaders have
widely accepted and adopted various wellness programs for their workers. Apart from good
performance, workplace wellness has farfetched benefits for employees. In that case, as a
Training Supervisor of LeoFlow Industries in Nevada, I will design, discuss, and recommend the
following wellness program for the 250 employees.
According to SAMHSA 2016, wellness includes environmental, financial, emotional,
occupational, physical, social, spiritual, and intellectual parts of a person which are
interconnected dimensions that build one another. Therefore, based on the data tabulated by
Virtanen et al. 2018, it became absolutely clear that work place wellness is essential and many
employees are experiencing various lifestyle disease challenges.
