National Employee Wellness Month is held in June simply because it marks the mid-point of the year and is a time to reflect back on your personal health goals. Carlos Rivas tells us why this is a time to take inventory of what worked and what didn't work.
So why National Employee Wellness Month? Forward-thinking organizations and employees understand that proactive or preventative health decisions will create a healthier, happier and more productive workforce.
3 Simple Strategies for Successful Worksite Wellness Programs
1. Lead by example: Success starts at the top. Highly engaged leadership will dramatically have higher participation rates. The executive team must be active participants of the wellness initiatives.
2. Make it Easy: Map out walking routes around the office with varying distances and approximate time requirements to offer options for all fitness levels. Serve healthier foods at meetings, in the cafeteria and in vending machines. Have a fitness expert set appropriate goals and teach the employees how to use the worksite fitness facility.
3. Personalize It: Successful wellness programs are highly individualized. Your program needs to encourage employees to establish their own goals. Make the goals achievable so that the employees accomplish early success. These early successes will build the competence and motivation needed to be more productive and engaged at work.
