(Bloomberg) — Swedish trucking company Scania believes in the 24-hour employee. Scania workers aren't just expected to be their best selves at work, they're expected to be their best selves all the time. To help employees attain that ideal, Scania offers an extensive workplace wellness program to its 5,000 employees that includes access to an onsite gym, a team of health care professionals, and seminars in which employees can learn techniques for healthier living. 

"Scania cares for its employees both on and off the job," a human resources manager in 2011 tolda researcher of its approach to workforce wellness. "We try to help them live healthier. Our interest and care does not end when they leave work."
