1. Understand the range of value for worksite wellness programs

2. Identify 4 strategic program options

3. Gain awareness of ROI from case studies

DOCUMENT DESCRIPTION

This PowerPoint presentation offers an excellent overview of the foundation elements of a high performance employer wellness program.

The presentation covers the core rationale for a worksite wellness strategy and outlines the importance of changeable lifestyle risk factors. Afterwards, a four stage evolutionary model of employer program options is presented, with reference to ROI and data from two case studies.

Unlike most reviews of organization wellness programs, this presentation deck offers a strategic overview which is evidenced-based from the author's extensive experience as an organization change professional.

Four employer program options are detailed. One key takeaway for the reader is that far more than employer-sponsored gym or fitness membership for employees are needed in order to produce substantial cost savings, increased employee moral, retention, increases in employer brand, and boasts in employee productivity. The greater the amount of resources committed the higher the likelihood of program benefit.
