This exploratory study identifies issues that are considered important in a wellness programme by employees and the perceived gender differences as returned by the respondents. It also examines the relationships between gender and selected factors that affect employee health. Data was collected from a sample of 193 respondents in two towns in Botswana using self-administered questionnaires. Distributive statistics are used in summarising the generated data. Results indicate that it is only in a few cases that there are significant gender differences in what is considered important factors of a wellness programme. Some implications suggested from the results were discussed.
