How to Build a Winning Wellness Program:

In Employee Benefits on September 2, 2010 at 8:39 pm

From “do it yourself” to hiring a wellness consultant, there are many ways to create a wellness program.  One of the best ways to garner excitement and interest (and great ideas) is to engage your employees with a contest for your new or expanded wellness program.

To frame the competition correctly, first ask yourself and your team the following questions:

  • What do we want our wellness program to accomplish?
  • How do we plan to accomplish it?
  • How does this mission support or further our overall mission?
  • What financial resources and personnel are available?

From the answers, craft a wellness program mission statement that ensures submissions will be practical.

Now post your program parameters, contest guidelines and deadline.  Have the wellness program committee review the ideas submitted, and select a winner.  Make a big deal out of it, because it is!
