Because of the ever-increasing costs of health insurance and the importance of employee health, employers should consider working with our team to implement a custom wellness program that benefits both your employee's holistic wellness as well as your organization's bottom line.
Our Holistic Wellness programs can benefit employers by:
Obtaining information about the health of the workforce—and the organization's willingness to make improvements based on this information—is a critical step in developing a customized holistic workforce wellness program.
Our information gathering process will enable our team to design programs and services that are most beneficial to both your organization and the employee.
Support from management is essential to building a successful holistic wellness program. As with any initiative, management buy-in is critical for funding purposes, for obtaining support throughout the organization, and for approving policies and processes related to the program.
We will work with management to help link the holistic wellness program objectives to business outcomes, thereby positioning wellness as a fundamental part of the organization.
After conducting a needs assessment and obtaining management support, our team will help assemble an internal, employee-driven holistic wellness council that helps build and sustain a holistic wellness culture in the organization. This council will help build organizational support and effectiveness for the holistic wellness program.
With the info gathered from the workforce assessment, we help your organization's newly formed holistic wellness council establish goals and objectives for the program. For many organizations, a key goal is to improve workers' health and thereby reduce health care costs. Other goals may include reducing absenteeism, boosting worker fulfillment and increasing retention.
Establishing a budget is a critical step in creating your organization's holistic wellness program. We'll work with your team to ensure that the holistic wellness budget includes the cost of incentives, marketing and program design,
There is not one standard program, as each will vary based on organizational needs and resources. The holistic wellness program may range from a very simple program to an elaborate multi-prong program. We'll team up to include a variety of components that target risk behaviors and the needs and interests of the employees.
We'll collectively use the resources obtained in previous steps of organizational assessment, in wellness committee data gathering and in budgetary constraints, as well as in the goals and objectives, to determine the types of wellness programs to include.
People are driven to act by the positive consequences they expect from their actions. Incentives or rewards are an effective tool to change unhealthy behaviors, to adhere to healthy behaviors, to increase participation rates or to help individuals complete a program. We'll help your holistic wellness council integrate a rewards system into your holistic wellness program
Rewards can take many forms, including points that can be exchanged for goods, gifts celebrating accomplishments, monetary awards or even time off. Over time, the motivation for rewards shifts from an external incentive to intrinsic reinforcement.
Effective incentives will be commensurate with the effort required to practice the desired behavior. For example, incentives attached to smoking cessation or weight loss should be greater than incentives for participating in a lunch-and-learn seminar.
Federal and state regulations may limit incentives,, and we'll help keep your counsil up to date on applicable compliance obligations.
The next step is to help your council write and communicate the organization's holistic wellness policy.
We'll help your council develop a wellness policy statement that includes the organization's intent, level of involvement, and rewards and incentives system with respect to employee holistic wellness.
As with any investment or project, evaluating the effectiveness of the holistic wellness program is important in sustaining management and employee support and in revising or implementing new programs.
We'll help your council identify metrics and baselines at the rollout of your organization's holistic wellness initiative, which will vary depending on the programs implemented.
