  • A whole-person approach actively addresses behaviors and choices in all dimensions of life that affect our total wellbeing. All dimensions are interdependent on one another. Wellbeing is the totality of how all aspects are balanced. Unlike any other program, Wellness Inventory addresses this holistic requirement with an accessible, proven approach. For example, instead of just dealing with the tactic of nutrition, the Eating dimension addresses personal eating perspectives on a strategic level, looking at behaviors and habits as well as better, informed choices.
  • This is not a quickie, 15-minute standard evaluation like some HRAs. This is designed to raise deeper awareness and motivate self-reflection that will result in better and sustained improvements.
  • One response measures how true a statement reflects the participant’s perspective. The second response measures their motivation to improve their view of that statement.
  • This is not a quickie, 15-minute standard evaluation like some HRAs. This is designed to raise deeper awareness and motivate self-reflection that will result in better and sustained improvements.
  • Participants can select what days and what time of day they receive reminders for their action steps. Quick links to the online program’s other interactive tools, such as the journal, are also included.
  • Participants can make personal notes, ideas and reminders in the journal for each dimension or for action steps. They can access past entries to track changes and progress. They can also select from a variety of fonts and colors and even upload photos – it’s strictly for the participant as a self-motivation tool, totally confidential.
  • Based on their highest motivations, participants can reference their statements to learn more about how this element of a dimension impact their daily life and wellbeing.
  • There are articles, books, CDs and other resources, and the client can populate the resource centers with existing workplace programs as well as community programs. There are articles and other free information, as well as optional products that can be purchased for personal development, such as books and CDs. One example of a resource can be an on-site or virtual coach (for groups or individuals).
  • Monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, or bi-annually, whenever work best – a coach can easily track and access a participant’s scores in each dimension. This provides a time-efficient and effective catalyst for coaching to help a participant to address issues and achieve their wellbeing potential.
  • An easy-to-use administration panel enables managers to authorize participants for the program, look up reports, review specific demographic segments to compare group scores, compare aggregate reports, and customize some pages with the company logo.
  • Based on department, division, line of business, or location, a licensee can create groups. There are eight demographic filters for each group. More criteria can be added as a custom upgrade.
