Well-Oiled Methodologies to Improve Well Being
MyLifeWell has a comprehensive and streamlined methodology to help its clients embark on the total wellness journey. The approach consists of three phases: the pre onboarding phase, the onboarding phase, and the post onboarding phase. The first phase involves understanding the requirements and creating a program, including the rollout, incentive, and communication plan in conjunction with the clients’ management team.
During the onboarding phase, the company ensures that the employees have access to all the relevant materials, including the marketing data and other relevant information needed for seamless initiations.
Once the employees have all the relevant materials, MyLifeWell follows a continuous implementation cycle in the post-onboarding phase with step-by-step processes to ensure a smooth client journey. The first step of the continuous implementation cycle starts with the confidential health assessment of employees, which employees can take at the time of their choice. Based on that assessment, all the employees get a personalized report that includes the most significant health risk areas where they can start focusing on kicking start their wellness journey.
In the next step, the company provides classes, blogs, and live seminars to educate the clients and their employees on the different areas of wellness.

A Company Born Out Of Personal Experience
After working in the corporate world for a few years, Goomer wanted to take a step back and inculcate wellness in his life. However, to his dismay, he discovered that all the existing wellness solutions were fragmented and did not offer services that met his needs. Most of the solutions were either too focused on physical health, mental wellness, or just on the coaching and nutrition side of well-being. Thus, he took the onus on himself and laid the cornerstone of MyLifeWell to deliver end-to-end wellness for all.
Communication and education are two of the pillars we focus on the most to help clients address the challenges around mental wellness and retention
From global tech companies to city governments and NGOs working on the international stage, several organizations have leveraged MyLifeWell’s platform to improve their employees’ well-being. A case in point is a global client’s success story with consultants scattered across different locations, which constituted almost 70 percent of their workforce. Hence, the client was facing issues in actively engaging their workforce throughout the wellness program. Subsequently, they entrusted MyLifeWell to complete the uphill task. The company created a 90-day strategy since the first 90 days are the most crucial for successfully implementing the wellness program.
At first, MyLifeWell created clear and concise communication material around the program benefits and ensured that all those materials were being used throughout clients’ internal communication channels. Thereafter, the company appointed a few wellness ambassadors within the clients’ team that were actively participating in the programs to encourage and communicate the program’s benefits to their colleagues. MyLifeWell also launched a few challenges to improve engagement even further. Then, the company followed its step-by-step methodologies, culminating in greater employee participation. As a result, the company exceeded clients’ expectations by doubling the number of consultants that were engaged in the program within the first 90 days.
As a nascent organization, MyLifeWell has already created a mark for itself with its innovative approach to well-being. Garnering a significant number of accolades and client satisfaction, the company has a well-laid-out plan for its future. At the moment, it is creating one of the most extensive health and wellness rewards portals for employers to help them improve employees’ engagement in the wellness program. Further, as the demand for wellness travel has picked up among employers, MyLifeWell envisages integrating wellness travel plans on its platform in the near future.
