Today's Corporate Wellness Programs look very different than the health and fitness initiatives of the past. The best programs are aggressive and focused on screening, prevention and measurable results. The best wellness programs are customized to address the needs of myriad unique employee populations. The best programs also launch educational initiatives that encourage personal responsibility and healthy decision-making. And most importantly the best wellness programs involve all members of the workforce.
What makes a corporate wellness program successful? One thing we know for sure is cheap memberships don't work. We know because we offered that for several years: "Join now because it's cheap and just go have at it." We found that by simply offering a cheap membership the number of employees that joined the gym was minimal. The number of those that actually used the gym was even less. The cheap gym membership is a great perk for the employees that already practice a healthy lifestyle. However, these aren't the employees that are responsible for the rising health care costs, absenteeism, employee turnover, workers comp claims, and other problems associated with obesity and unhealthy lifestyles.
In fact, ten percent of employees consume 80 percent of the health-care costs at most companies. They are the ones at the highest risk for common medical conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol, and heart disease, back pain, and are the least likely to change unhealthy behaviors. "In order for a wellness program to be successful and have significant financial impact, it has to be robust enough to engage that 10 percent," says David Hunnicutt, president of the Wellness Councils of America, a nonprofit health-promotion organization in Omaha, Nebraska. The primary goal of any wellness program should be to return the highest-risk people to low-risk status while helping the other 90 percent maintain a low-health-risk lifestyle, he says.
That is why Golds Gym developed HELP (Healthy Employee Lifestyle Program). HELP can benefit all of your employees, whether or not they choose to join our health club. HELP provides all of your employees with tools and resources to understand and improve their "Physical Wealth." Physical Wealth affects an individual's entire life: their health, vitality, energy, self-confidence, productivity, self-esteem. The Physical Wealth of individuals affects the bottom-line wealth of the companies they work for.
