First, congratulations on working with a company that is implanting a wellness program. You may already be underway. I see you have some great responses to the question already. Here are a couple of ideas on corporate health and fitness from the ÔÇÿvault’ for you.
Full participation comes easier when you ensure that you keep employees’ personal health risk appraisal [HRA] and fitness data confidential; give corporate leadership aggregate data. Employees are more likely to share their health issues when they know you protect their anonymity. If you use an online HRA tool even better, employees may go in to their personalized online center and update their own information.
Work with all department leaders e.g. human resources, finance, legal, operations. Their input is valuable in creating a menu of health services; involve each department leader in the internal marketing component to bolster employee participation.
Working with the company aggregate demographics and health risks identified through your HRA you may craft a good employee ÔÇÿpoll’ asking employees which health/fitness programs they would participate in when offered.
Best wishes for continued success!
