Fitness memberships (can be via an onsite fitness center or through discounts or reimbursements offered through the employer); massage therapy, various health screenings (blood pressure, body composition, glucose, cholesterol, bone density, derma-scan, waist to hip ratio, postural analyses); CPR/AED trainings, healthy living workshops or series such as stress management, healthy eating, weight loss, proper desk ergonomics, etc.
Incentive programs are THE way to motivate employees to engage in healthy behaviors. There is some kind of prize involved (let’s say, a T-shirt for working out at least 30 minutes per day, at least 3 days a week for three months) to act as the “carrot” to engage the employee. Incentives can also include massage or personal training. There’s plenty of room for creativity and it’s essential to tailor each incentive program to the particular population you’re working with in order to get the best participation possible.
