A wellness program is most effective if you know where to begin and how to get there. To determine a starting point, it’s essential to gather as much data as possible. Knowing information such as disease risks, biometrics and health behaviors can be helpful in understanding your population.
You can gather this data using a Health Assessment (HA). The HA will help your employees determine their health age and risks for various health conditions. It will also offer recommendations tailored to their personal health. As an employer, you will receive this data in aggregate form, protecting the confidentiality of individual employees. Once the information has been gathered, you will have a map for your wellness program, highlighting specific areas of focus for your population. Consider performing the HA once a year to stay on track.
Increase participation with incentives
Using incentives can increase participation in the HA. Incentives can include cash, refreshments and giveaways (for example, t-shirts, pens, etc.). However, incentives can also include discounts, drawing entries, recognition, time off or educational/training time. It is surprising that the most miniscule of incentives can increase participation dramatically.
Use this campaign to promote the HA to your employees. Here are a few ways you can use the resources below to implement this campaign at your workplace:
