3 Steps to Creating an Employee Wellness Program

Whether you’re planning for January and resolutions, or just want to invest in your employees’ health, a program to promote healthy habits and reward your team for participating is a great way to show you care. Plus, healthy employees are absent less, are more productive and even help to keep health insurance rates down! Custom imprinted giveaways should be part of your program, as these build awareness, encourage teamwork and are great daily reminders.

Here are three key steps to creating a company health program:

Lunch KitStep 1: Generate Buzz!

Before you launch your Employee Health Program, provide your employees with the tools they need to get ready.  A custom imprinted salad shaker, protein shaker or lunch kit are all great options to help your team prep their lunches to bring to work!

Health & Fitness JournalStep 2: Track the Progress!

Decide on a goal for your program and how to track it. Is it a competition based on weight loss? Have a group weight loss goal posted in your break room, or compete for which group of employees is most active! A custom-imprinted Health & Fitness Journal will help your employees be more aware of the choices they are making.

When your program comes to a conclusion, it is important to acknowledge not only your “winners”, but everyone who participated. Have a closing ceremony for the program and discuss ways to continue your new healthy habits.
