6 KEY PILLARS OF WELLNESS
Below are six fundamental areas of health programming that the Healthiest Employers® application assesses to understand how your company is investing in your employees. The assessment takes a holistic view of employee health, beyond the physical dimension and the financial realms of evaluating employee health.
Culture determines the success (or failure) of today’s worksite wellness programs. And, leadership plays a critical role in affecting an organization’s approach to programming.
The foundation of your program will determine its overall, long-term strength. Shallow programs can be built quickly, but have difficulty in producing lasting results.
Achieving an innovative program begins by developing a mid and long-term strategy. This work will be evidenced in the results of a healthier, more productive workforce.
COMMUNICATION AND MARKETING
With a communications and marketing campaign targeted to your workforce, you can turn lackluster perception and participation into ongoing momentum.
PROGRAMMING AND INTERVENTIONS
Does your program use a carrot or the stick? Effective methods and engagement strategies are often ones that address the self-interest of the employee population.
REPORTING AND ANALYTICS
Healthy employees are more productive and spend less in healthcare. The need for a ROI is common when looking at the dollars spent on a corporate wellness program.
