The strength of a business relies on its bottom line, and it takes a productive and engaged workforce to help meet those financial goals, particularly for a client-focused organization, such as EPIC, an employee benefits brokerage firm in Petaluma, Calif. With this in mind, EPIC has implemented a wellness program to improve its employees’ health and has watched it grow and positively influence employees’ lives, says Mary Smith, the firm’s executive vice president of human resources.

“If our employees are healthy and happy, then our clients are happy,” Smith says. “Our employees feel better about themselves when they’re healthy, and they’re going to project that positive attitude onto our clients, as well. There’s a lot of interaction between our employees and clients, so it really ends up hitting the bottom line.”
