HR Tech Outlook | Thursday, April 01, 2021

Worksite wellness plans should be no different. One should not carry out a new benefits package without a strategic plan in place. First and foremost, one must consider the overall objectives one wishes to accomplish.


Fremont, CA: Wellness services for workers are here to stay! Nearly 90 percent of employers with 200 or more employees who provided health insurance offered a workplace wellness program in 2019. Weight control, smoking abstinence, wellness screenings, and lifestyle and behavioral coaching are all part of these plans. While no standard exists for how well-being initiatives are planned, implemented, or assessed, one thing is clear: COVID-19 has demonstrated the importance of organizations promoting employee wellness as a strategic business initiative.

Let us look at some useful tips to initiate workplace wellness in a company:

Making a Robust Plan: Worksite wellness plans should be no different. One should not carry out a new benefits package without a strategic plan in place. First and foremost, one must consider the overall objectives one wishes to accomplish.

Collecting Data: One needs to know two things to create an effective wellness program: what aspects of wellness their workers are involved in and what health threats are most prevalent in their employee population. Then one must figure out how to get the two together.

Technology Is Just a Tool: It's not enough to have a self-directed, off-the-shelf technology solution. Too often, companies buy a technology solution that isn't tailored to their needs and then tell their employees about it. Regrettably, this is insufficient to count as a wellness program.

Considering All Risk Levels: Since the coronavirus disproportionately affects people who have high blood pressure, diabetes, or obesity, employers can provide a health program that includes all of their workers. Maintaining the health of those who are stable is just as vital as improving the health of those who have risk factors.

Customizing the Approach: Wellness entails more than just exercise and nutrition; it also includes stress management, mental and emotional well-being, maintaining a healthy family, and getting the required preventive screenings. Don't get stuck in a fitness rut by repeating the same programs year after year with no other choices or variety. Employers should change the material, strategy, and duration of their program.
