Building a World Class Health Program as Part of a Comprehensive Employee Total Rewards Benefits Package
The drive to implement workplace wellness programs in an environment lacking leadership buy-in and support often results in conducting discreet events such as information fairs, group walking events, or brown bag luncheons. While the intent of these efforts is admirable, by themselves they cannot bring about positive health outcomes for employees or decreased healthcare spend for a company. Instead, they wind up providing a “check” in the wellness box on the list of a company’s annual accomplishments while inadvertently giving rise to the conclusion often voiced by senior managers that workplace wellness programs do not work. This lecture will tell the story of successful “hands on” efforts to realize a workplace culture of health that provides the platform for successful workplace wellness programs which can and do improve health outcomes and decrease healthcare spend.
In this session attendees will:
Develop an understanding of the business case for wellness programs
Appreciate the value of strategic planning and functional scalability when building a wellness program
Recognizing the need for ensuring sustainability of a proposed wellness program
See the full potential of mobile technology to enable success with employee wellness programs like never before
