Wellness is the state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal. Having a company wellness program is a great benefit to offer employees, however, how will you engage your staff? How will you ensure that the benefit you’re providing is being used effectively? Working with a health and wellness coach increases the staff buy-in beyond thinking of incentives because the coach provides support, encouragement, and tools to achieve the health and wellness goals. The coach meets with staff on a regular, one-on-one basis to develop goals, strengths, and action plans to achieve health and wellness ideals.
A comprehensive wellness program has the potential ROI of $1.50-$3.00 per dollar invested. The savings are reflected in minimized employee turnover, health insurance savings, increased productivity, and decreased sick days. There are typically two facets to employee wellness programs—lifestyle management and disease management. Often, disease management shows more short-term benefits to the employer and employee and, in contrast, lifestyle management shows more long-term benefits. Either way, there is a benefit to the employer and employee.
Employees are a company’s greatest asset. Without them, a company would not function or find success. In today’s job market, it is exceedingly important to provide employee benefits that demonstrate their value to the company. A comprehensive wellness program is one of those benefits. An employee who feels valued, appreciated, and cared for is more productive, more engaged, and stays with the company longer.
