Corporate Wellness Program

What is Corporate Wellness?

Corporate wellness programs are designed to nurture wellness in workers, regardless of the work environment. The programs are most successful when the business and workers are fully engaged in the program with good health in mind. A successful workplace isn’t about the bottom line alone. It also means creating a safe and healthy workplace for each individual.
 
Corporate Wellness is among the most vital investments that a company can make. Businesses that start Corporate Wellness programs aren’t only investing in the physical wellness, safety, and mental health of their employees, but are also taking preventive measures by creating a healthier environment.
 
By starting a Corporate Wellness Program, corporations are able to improve the overall productivity and are able to save money on health care expenses. Often, corporations are concerned about the actual wellness return on investment but the fact is that by encouraging healthier lifestyles, corporations are creating healthier employees who will work more diligently and miss fewer days of work due to illness. In fact there are more than 200 scientific studies indicating the positive ROI for worksite wellness programs.

Program Description

The resource we are using is based on a program developed by Dr. Kelly D. Brownell, a professor at Yale University. The principles behind the program are based on scientific research and real weight loss case studies.
 
The reason we personally chose this program is because it is simple for participants to follow, and it teaches lifestyle change principles instead of dieting principles.
 
The program starts with maintenance because the ultimate goal of weight control is to maintain a healthy weight for the rest of your life.
 
The recommended program length is six weeks. Modifications can be made to make the program longer or shorter per request of the company. There are three one hour lectures at weeks one, two and 6. In between the one hour lectures at weeks three, four, five and six are four one hour weigh-in sessions. At the start of the second week, email contact is made to establish compliance, motivation and support. Phone and email contact are encourage and available throughout the entire six weeks. The program fees are based on the number of participants:
 
Options for an additional fee include:

  • Six week maintenance program
  • Group exercise programs
  • Stress/Time Management program

Incentive Options

The employer is encouraged to offer long term incentives as well as short term.
 

  • Group celebrations with health snacks
  • Gift cards
