In an attempt to get a grip on escalating costs, many organizations are offering wellness programs (walking programs, health screenings, workshops, etc.) but they aren’t necessarily seeing their costs go down, nor are people getting healthier overall. It’s particularly disconcerting when the people who need the programs the most won’t even participate.
The problem is, the more stuck a person is in their unhealthy lifestyle, the harder it is for them to change. There is a direct correlation between how stuck someone is and the state of their health. That’s why so many wellness programs aren’t really pulling in the people who need it most and/or they’re not helping people create change that lasts.
The bottom line is…people fall off the wagon. Period.
The good new is, there’s hope! With the right strategy, plan and programming that helps people change problem behaviors, you can have an effective wellness program that truly engages your employees and supports them in becoming healthier and more productive.
