How to hatch your health & wellbeing programme

Georgie Howden Wellness & Lifestyle Manager Healthoutfit Ltd

Whether your programme is just beginning or needs to build some muscle, here are our top tips for success:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Mix it up
    The workplace health and wellbeing programme should offer something to all abilities, ages and interests.
  4. Monitor and measure
    Identify key success metrics for your health and wellbeing programme, continuously evaluate and rigorously report on them throughout the organisation.
  5. Maintain and motivate
    Use effective and engaging communication to let employees know what’s on offer and why it’s important to them.
