When to implement a corporate wellness program
7 June 2019
What is the best time to implement a corporate wellness program? Well, some of the questions you might ask yourself are, do your employees neglect their health in favour of their job? Are they taking more sick days than usual? Are there increased disability claims such as short-term disability, long-term disability, and stress-leave? If you are nodding your head and answering yes to any of these question’s, then now might be a great time to invest in a corporate wellness program. Here are some more things to consider.
1) What are your goals?
What are you hoping to achieve by implementing a corporate wellness program? Do you want employees to be healthier? Do you want to decrease sick days? Or do you merely want to offer your employees more perks and benefits?
2) Do you only want to offer one service or many services?
Our customized programs are a great way to implement everything from health screening, to health coaching, chronic disease management, massage therapy, chiropractic services, disability management, and return to work programs. Everything is entirely customizable to your unique situation.
3) What is your budget?
While there is a cost for a corporate wellness program, the cost of employees in ill health over time is far higher. Health concerns affect every area of your organization and significantly decrease productivity, revenue and employee wellbeing.
4) Do you want the wellness programs to happen onsite or offsite?
We are unique in that we will come directly to your place of business to offer you and your employees our many wellness offerings. There is no time lost with travel to and from another destination so you can provide a fantastic program without the negatives of off-site programs.
5) Will employees be involved in the process?
Getting employees involved can be a good idea as then they are more willing to embrace the wellness options your company is offering. It can also help build team comradery and show them that your culture is inclusive and supportive. But, this all depends on your company and is a personal decision that you need to make as an organization.
