    Mahoning Valley Corporate Wellness Study

    hChoices, a Youngstown Business Incubator portfolio company, is conducting a Corporate Wellness Study, with independent analysis through the Office of Health Policy and Performance Improvement, to demonstrate the value of implementing a structured wellness program for your employees. All Mahoning Valley employers are invited to participate.

    Why Should You Care?

Healthier workers are more likely to show up for work, more productive when at work, are in better physical and mental health, and are more likely to better themselves through education and skills training.
