What's the most important thing

  1. 1. What’s the Most Important Thing?
  2. 2. … the most important thing if you’re thinking about initiating a wellness program … or are frustrated by the lack of participation in an existing program. That is …
  3. 3. Engagement! That’s today’s business Hot Button! True engagement moves from interest to behavior change, and then to sustainability of that new behavior.
  4. 4. But, how? That’s today’s million dollar question … … and we just happen to have the million dollar answer (for a whole lot less).
  5. 5. Your wellness initiative must be seen by your employees as something you are doing FOR them, not TO them. This is the takeaway—right up front. (Carrots and sticks just don’t work long-term.)
  6. 6. Your wellness initiative must be embraced from the Top Down, at least in the beginning (see what happens when you get to slide 9 ***). If your organization’s leadership doesn’t fully support it, if your department heads and managers don’t support it, trust us, your employees won’t buy-in. The result—no engagement. More…
  7. 7.  And, one more thing … A wellness initiative, such as the LoneStartNow Team Esteem Challenge, is a process that gradually changes lifestyle behaviors. A true wellness initiative (the kind that actually changes behavior) is not an event. It’s not a health fair, fun run, or filling out a HRA. Those are events.
  8. 8. Once everyone is on-board, great things happen …  Improved productivity  Improved morale  Decreased absenteeism  Decreased presenteeism  Health care costs start to go down  Employees become engaged in the wellness process  Your bottom line improves And, this all spills over into a more aligned workforce.
  9. 9. Once your initiative has taken hold and is part of your organization’s culture, it takes on a life of its own, becoming a Bottom Up rather than strictly Top Down program. Your employees are vested in its success, because it is also their success! *** And, here’s the promised Slide 9 A “Me” Challenge becomes a “We” opportunity. Participants work as teams toward a common cause—creating a new culture of wellness within their organization.
  10. 10. We know it’s easy to get fit people to participate in wellness programs. The real challenge is to engage those individuals who are most at risk for preventable chronic illness and least likely to participate in traditional “diet and exercise” programs—and that means reducing, if not eliminating, the real and perceived barriers to participation and success. And, that’s a good thing. It’s a challenge. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
  11. 11. We partner with our clients to engage all of their employees in a team-building behavioral strategy designed to create a new culture where healthier behaviors are learned, adopted, shared, and sustained. This is what we do.
  12. 12. Now, ask yourself … What should you expect from the effort and investment you’re going to put into a wellness initiative?
