4 Things You Can Do to Champion Wellness
As you begin strategically planning a wellness initiative, one of your first goals should be to collect as much data as possible on the population of your workforce. Determining the needs and wants of your employees will lay the groundwork for building your wellness plan. Four actions that you can take to identify the key needs and wants of your organization points are listed below.
- Health Risk Assessment
- Biometric Screening
- Employee Needs and Interest Survey
- Health Culture Audit
By tackling the above, you’ll gain a well-rounded understanding of what your organization needs from the health risk assessment and biometric screening data, as well as what your employees want from the needs and interest survey results.
This is your "hero" opportunity. You have an opportunity to really listen to your employees, understand what they’re saying and implement programs based on their feedback. Once you do, promote it! Promote the fact that “Hey, we heard you and we listened! Here’s what we’re doing based on your comments and feedback.” This messaging is powerful and builds the foundation for trust in the wellness initiative. Employees know that the wellness initiative is keeping them in mind every step of the way, which is exactly how it should be.
