Designing a Corporate Wellness Program that Works
Corporate Wellness programs have been around for many years. There has also been a long standing debate as to if these types of programs work. This is a similar question that could be posed to Corporate America if performance reviews, ongoing training programs, employee assistance programs, or social interaction programs for employee morale are effective for both the employee and the bottom line of the employer. The overall answer is that some of these types of programs are successful while others ultimately fail. No surprise the key components include the design and execution of the program.
How to create a wellness program that works? What can employers and consultants do to avoid some of the missteps that have been made in the past in designing a program that turned out to be ineffective and costly? WellnessIQ has done a significant amount of research, case studies, and monitoring of higher performing employer groups to share the following building blocks for a successful program.
