Building a Corporate Wellness Program That Really Works

Culture Of Wellness

A healthy work environment is key to building a successful corporate wellness program. Create a culture of wellness by offering refreshing waters, healthy snacks, access to fitness and strong work-life balance.

Wellness Team

Every wellness program needs a strong team to keep it running. Interested employees, HR representatives and office managers are good people to consider for the team.

Communication

Lack of awareness is one of the biggest barriers to employee participation in wellness programs, along with perception of punishment and that it will be too much extra work. Consistent communication can help raise awareness—and address any misgivings.

Clear Goals

Goals are important to help select the right wellness initiatives. There are many options available today, and it can be overwhelming if the business doesn’t have a clear objective to focus on.
