Corporate Wellness History

Worksite wellness programs date back to the late 1800’s and early 1900’s when companies like the Pullman Company, National Cash Register, and Hershey Foods established gyms, fitness programs, housing, schooling, exercise breaks, and recreational parks for their employees. In the 1950’s and 1960’s Texas Instruments, Rockwell and Xerox all established fitness programs for their employees. In 1970, The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OHSA) was established with an emphasis on avoiding workplace accidents and work-related illnesses. By the 1980’s, all of these influences could be seen in worksite programming offering employees a range of programs from smoking cessation, stress management, nutrition, weight management, and more.
