Wellness Solutions

Human risk improvement.

People are the greatest asset to business. The better our people perform, the better our services to our customers both internally and externally. Unfortunately businesses spend a lot of time and resources investing in areas that are essential but are not core to the development of people. It is well documented that healthy people are happier and perform at their best. A strong wellness culture physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually can provide a return on investment of six dollars for every dollar invested. Positive outcomes include: improved quality of life, decreased absenteeism, decreased presenteeism (present but unproductive), increased job satisfaction, reduced turnover, as well as decreased healthcare and workers compensation costs. Business with strong wellness cultures are also respected by the public and recognized as great places to work.

UNICO recognizes the need to assist our clients with the development of comprehensive wellness services. Our Executive Wellness Consultant has more than 20 years of experience working with companies as small as five employees to nearly 20,000 people of all types of industry across America.
