How to hatch your health & wellbeing programme
Whether your programme is just beginning or needs to build some muscle, here are our top tips for success:
- Set the baseline
We call it an Employee Wellbeing Assessment. Data from this will help develop a holistic strategy that focusses activities on what’s important to your people. Management will most likely require data to make an investment decision in a programme too.
- Set the example
From Leadership team level to direct supervision – employees need to know that you are listening to their health concerns and support their participation in health and wellbeing events.
- Mix it up
The workplace health and wellbeing programme should offer something to all abilities, ages and interests.
- Monitor and measure
Identify key success metrics for your health and wellbeing programme, continuously evaluate and rigorously report on them throughout the organisation.
- Maintain and motivate
Use effective and engaging communication to let employees know what’s on offer and why it’s important to them.
