In this 1hr webinar, we will discuss what wellness is and how and why it has evolved in the global industry and where Canada is in that evolution. We will discuss how wellness can support your client’s health, be a differentiator and drive more revenue to the bottom line. Wellness can be a minimal capital expense driving better margins due to the minimal labor and operational costs involved.
