Partnership with Employers

We don't want to simply be an outside expert. We want to partner with you to successfully improve the health of your employees. We begin by gaining an understanding of your organization's wellness culture, experience and goals. We visit your location to get a first-hand look at your environment and company culture.

We use this information to determine which programs would most benefit your employees. In the future, our strategies can be modified based on your organization's results, which we collect and analyze. We review results with you, and use the data to determine how we can continue to achieve the best results for your organization.

Your organization will have a dedicated Client Engagement Manager to ensure seamless program implementation and ongoing program management. Your Client Engagement Manager stays in touch with you to ensure you are always getting the most out of your wellness program.

Communication and promotion to your employees

You've found the best wellness program for your organization. How do you make sure your employees know about it and get involved? Building employee awareness of program offerings and personal benefits of participation is a key step in engagement. We develop a communication strategy to promote program awareness throughout your organization. Then, we distribute our materials in ways that best reach your employees, whether it is digital or print.

Our marketing materials help encourage and maintain employee participation in the wellness program.
