Wellness Plans Get Personal

I love teaching people about healthy lifestyles and am often asked by corporations to come speak during their employee Wellness Series.  Investing in the wellness of your work force, pays big dividends towards reducing health care premiums and lowering non-productive costs. Just as importantly, it communicates your desire to do “something more” for your staff.  Wellness gets personal.  One of my favorite blogger’s wrote about her experience with her company’s wellness initiative:

I Have to Do What? 

Her blog is a great reminder that a) Wellness remains a very personal choice b) There needs to be  program depth beyond the initial inventory of body parts c) Employees will enter your wellness program at different stages of change Many people are completely happy to live out the duration of their lives in the “I don’t have a problem” or “I can live with this for the rest of my life” stage of change.  How well your employee wellness program engages people to make actual change is key to your success.  Programs that create action, positive, incremental steps towards healthier lifestyles, builds a happy, healthy workforce.  The halo effect a well implemented wellness program creates in the homes of your staff and your day-to-day work environment is personal, and at times, can be uncomfortable.

I’ve met the author of EmJayandthem’s Blog and while I don’t know her lipid profile or blood pressure, she’s fit, tries to eat healthy, and capably manages stress with a good sense of humor.  Thanks for the post MJ!

  1. Thanks, E2, for “getting it!” It is such a personal choice and slogging through the multi-choice questionnaire was both daunting and … disconcerting. Peace 🙂
