Moving Your Company Toward Wellness

These steps can help set the groundwork for a successful wellness program:

Attain Leadership Support for Wellness

Employee Wellness Screening Sign Up

Currently Participating Employees

Ideally everyone from your CEO to your managers would support your program and encourage participation.

Start a Wellness Committee

This will include people from throughout the organization at various levels and will help give you a good representation of ideas and thoughts. It also gives employees ownership of the program and provides the organization with automatic cheerleaders.

Create a Culture of Wellness

This means something a little different to each organization; however, even if your efforts seem minor, something is better than nothing. A culture shift takes time and can be met with resistance at various points. This shouldn't stop your efforts.

The workplace should possess the environment, attitudes, beliefs, and knowledge that are necessary for each employee to live a healthy lifestyle. If they're expected to lead healthy lifestyles at home on their own time, they should be given reasonable choices to be healthy while at work too. Policy changes can often make a large impact in this area of workplace wellness.

Utilize those on the wellness committee or collect a sampling of opinions from your workforce and see what separates them from a healthier lifestyle. Some issues your workplace may not be able to address but focus on what is within your control.
