Now is the Time to Launch a One-of-a-kind Wellness Program

The first of the year is a great time to make wellness an office priority if it isn’t already. If you’re looking to cut back on costs in 2011 it might feel counter-intuitive to spend money on a new company offering, but improving employee health is good for business too. The Harvard Business Review shows companies can expect a return on investment of $3 to $15 for every dollar spent on health and wellness.

At Wellness Corporate Solutions, January 1 marks the wellness program kick-off for dozens of new clients. With so many launches this January, it is important for us to recognize the differences in corporate culture and tweak our offerings to uniquely appeal to each and every client.

If you’re looking to start an internal wellness program, knowing your audience is key. For example, employees in a high-strung, competitive atmosphere might not warm to mandatory exercise classes or mid-day nutrition seminars. Instead, simple shifts in dining options could make a big difference and nudge workers towards healthier choices. Or, if the office environment is more laid back and group-oriented, company-wide walking challenges or monthly chair-massage events might encourage the greatest employee participation. Recognizing that there isn't a one-size-fits-all approach to wellness will ensure the most rewarding health initiative for employers and employees alike. Wellness Corporate Solutions can create a wellness program that reflects your company culture and increases the bottom line. What better way to start the New Year than with healthy, happy employees? For tips and ideas, we’re always happy to help!

It is important for everyone to have health insurance. This will provide security not just for us but also for our loved ones in our everyday lives.

Looking to start my own in a large company I work for...who in this giant beaurocracy can I talk to for funding? Dept. Or job title that usually puts on or makes decisions on internal ones?
