Why Your Wellness Program ISN’T Working

A lot of the companies will say they have a wellness program in place, however it’s usually just a fairy dust approach to corporate wellness program which is wasting your company’s money, time and effort. Below are reasons why your company’s program isn’t working, and why you need to make a change now.

 

  1. Nobody really knows about the Wellness Program your company is offering.

Chances are if your employees don’t really know about the program, it’s not actually a program. A lot of companies think that offering something here and there throughout the year like a hike, or an active day once a month is a program.  We’re here to tell you, it’s not!

A program is something that is offered regularly throughout the year and has been well designed for your team.   A program is something your team is encouraged to participate in on a weekly basis and rewards them for their efforts.

 

  1. The program you have in place is reactive.

Many companies have extended health coverage for Physio, Massage, and Acupuncture which is a perk, and at the same time is just reacting to people’s health needs.

In order to have a successful program, it needs to be pro-active and encourage people to be engaged and participating regularly.  If your company is solely focusing on treating physical injuries, stress, pain and illness, your organization is losing thousands and thousands of dollars a year.

 

  1. An employee or team in your office is responsible for the program, and it’s not their full time job.

These days, people have enough to do within their designated role at work, and by adding another “side” project like “office wellness coordinator” or manager is basically setting up this person, and your team for failure.  When it comes to having an effective wellness program that is saving you money and time long term, it’s essential that you hire a company who is experienced in this field, and can help you achieve your goals.

 

  1. Your company is stuck in a “Budget” mindset.

Your company either doesn’t have a budget for wellness program, or it’s very minimal.  Stepping outside of the “budget” mindset and thinking long term is important for seeing and receiving the benefits of running a successful program.

Switching from “budget” to “investment” thinking will keep your employees happy and healthy long term, which will save your company hundreds of thousands of dollars.   Long terms, companies can expect to save $3.4 per $1 invested in a well rounded pro active corporate wellness program long term.

Now, if you had the opportunity to see a 340% return on your investment wouldn’t it be silly not to?

    "I started attending Yoga Rush’s classes about half an year ago and it's been wonderful! They are professional, encouraging and fun. I benefit enormously from these classes not only physically but also psychologically. I feel my productivity and mood improves after class. I've also found myself more disciplined in exercise and diet, more peaceful and resilient."
