When you select a wellness vendor, make sure you'll receive the support of a single program manager who truly understands your population. I believe three qualities are most important:
- Education. Our program managers possess at least a master's degree in a health-related field, and many have additional certifications. The wellness field is changing every day, and it's essential to work with a professional who understands the latest techniques and trends.
- Experience. Your program manager is your wellness partner, not just a point of contact. Whether you're thinking about tweaking your incentive program or planning next year's wellness initiatives, you need an expert in your corner to advise you.
- Passion. Wellness is not a short-term proposition -- it's a long-term investment in the health of your employees. You deserve to have a wellness partner who genuinely cares about employee wellness and is dedicated to your success.
