Is Your Wellness Program Like an Airport?
Evolve your wellness programs to be like a mall not an airport. Providing choice and options can make a big difference. Let us explain what we mean.
At an airport, passengers arrive, and then leave. Perhaps they grab a cup of coffee in between and enjoy it over a magazine. Ultimately, however, there isn’t much of a reason to attend an airport for purposes other than pickup and drop-off.
The same can be true for wellness programs. Maybe you offer a Health Risk Assessment (HRA) and wellness challenges, but struggle to find additional reasons for your participants to log into their wellness portal.
EVOLVE YOUR WELLNESS PROGRAM TO BE LIKE A MALL
What if your wellness program was more like a shopping mall?
A mall has something for every audience. Maybe you want to get new shoes, or grab a bite to eat, or get that big screen television you’ve had your eye on. And even if you don’t have an agenda going in, there are so many options that you’re bound to find something worth looking at.
This is where a Health Library becomes useful.
WHAT IS A HEALTH LIBRARY?
A Health Library offers a comprehensive list of wellness related topics and content that a participant can browse through at their convenience. If a participant, for example, wanted to find low sugar recipes to address a Diabetes risk identified in their HRA results, they could find a variety of related options in a Health Library.
A Health Library could also offer assistance for topics that have nothing to do with the current wellness program they’re participating in. A person who wakes up with a sore back may be able to find some useful stretches or exercises to perform rather than missing a day of work. Another may learn some stress coping techniques for a difficult life scenario that makes them more productive. In these ways, a Health Library not only drives engagement to your wellness program, but also offers a potential return on investment (ROI) to your bottom line.
LACKING TIME OR KNOW-HOW TO BE A CREATIVE WRITER?
Speaking of bottom lines, are you a content creator or a wellness provider? If the latter, you probably face a common struggle in the industry: finding the time and resources to offer new, dynamic content. Once again, this is an area that a Health Library can assist with.
Let someone else provide content while you manage the diverse needs of your wellness participants.
A Health Library typically includes:
- Health tips
- Healthy recipes
- Monthly newsletters
