Wellness That Works - UHA Workplace Wellness Programs

It Takes More Than Knowledge And Resources

Many employers offer resources and incentives like free gym memberships and “Lunch & Learns.” While these are simple ways to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyle choices, studies have showed they're not as effective as employer may think. In fact, in just after a few short months, employee gym utilization drops off. Likewise, while many employers report positive feedback from “Lunch & Learn” sessions, research shows that raising awareness about important health issues is simply not enough. We need to do more than educate; we need to continuously nudge people to make lasting change.

 Improving Habits, Improving Outcomes

Targeted wellness programs can make a big difference where other initiatives falter. By harnessing insights from behavioral psychology, these approaches concentrate on habit formation as the key to producing effective, lasting, positive changes. The result is more sustained engagement from employees, and better long-term results.

Evaluating Wellness Programs: What To Look For

When choosing a wellness program for your team, look for one that provides you with the information you need to understand your workplace’s unique strengths and challenges. It's a good idea to measure your team's progress along the way to provide ongoing feedback in reaching your goals and also making you more likely to succeed.  This provides a baseline that will help you decide which initiatives and values to prioritize, and also to give you a better sense of your most your most effective starting point(s). Once you’ve identified your workplace’s top goals, you should then be provided with a concrete plan and the tools and resources that you need to make progress towards achieving them. Regular (quarterly or bi-annual) fitness testing is also important to gauge your team’s progress and to provide ongoing feedback.
