Spotlight on: Wellness and Health Risk Management

A well-designed worksite wellness program does more than improve the health of your employees. It enhances morale, improves productivity, boosts organizational performance, supports recruitment and retention and contains costs—but only if the program is customized to meet the needs and interests of your employees and address the goals of your company.

Together, we develop a winning strategy that goes beyond employee health to inspire a high-performing workforce.

Taking Steps Toward Success

Our health risk management consultants focus on five proven principles:

Analyze Culture

A wellness program goes from good to great when it takes into account the overall wellbeing of your employees and their work environment. Our cultural analysis helps identify your workforce issues and needs that can be targeted with the right resources.

Engage Management

Senior leadership support is key to the success of a wellness program. Employers who serve as role models and link wellbeing to business strategy create a culture where healthy lifestyles are valued and promoted.

Create Awareness

Our holistic approach considers your employees’ work-life balance and focuses on the specific health risk factors affecting them to create awareness.

Provide Education

Careful evaluation of health improvement options is important to keep your employees informed and engaged. Resources, such as newsletters and wellness classes, encourage your employees to make more informed health care decisions and take ownership of their wellbeing.

Measure Success

Setting tangible goals and analyzing aggregated data gives you a powerful tool to see what initiatives are working and what needs attention. Baselines for success measurement can include medical and pharmacy utilization, medical claim costs, employee participation and overall employee satisfaction.

Charting Your Path
