Skyrocket Revenue: Go Beyond the Ordinary Wellness Programs
In this blog, we highlight some unique products or services in the marketplace that could be a perfect complement to traditional wellness programs.
Offering wellness programs that are not as common can give you your competitive advantage in an industry that is constantly changing and evolving. Since traditional wellness programs typically only focus on employee’s physical well-being, many providers may be missing out on opportunities to grow.
This is part 3 of the blog series: 4 Ways to Skyrocket Revenue in your Wellness Company.
Go Beyond Traditional Wellness Programs
When it comes to happy and healthy employees, a full-scale approach where a program supports all facets of health and well-being can provide several benefits such as increased productivity, decreased absenteeism and decreased health care costs. And it doesn’t stop there. Other positive effects can be a higher perceived value of the workplace and better retention levels of employees. Some popular examples are outlined in more detail below.
1. Telehealth Services
Telehealth services offer employees the convenience of having their health questions answered from the comfort of their home. With the convenience of telehealth companies like eDocAmerica, people and companies save money by avoiding unnecessary doctor visits, catching problems earlier, and reduced absenteeism…not to mention peace of mind for those upsetting but non-critical issues.
2. Mental & Emotional Health Programs
The good news about mental health is there continues to be an increase in awareness which is leading to a decrease in stigmas associated with mental health conditions. However, when it comes to mental health, many employers think that by offering counselling services via their employee assistance program they have all their bases covered when, in fact, there are many other additional mental health resources available like these:
3. Financial Wellness Programs
Financial wellness programs are gaining in popularity and traction with employees. There is often so much focus on physical well-being that organizations tend to overlook how much finances can stress out an employee and negatively impact their health. Employees are increasingly stressed out because they’re worrying about student loan debt, putting their kids through college or when they’ll be able to retire. If you aren’t offering financial wellness programs already, it may be time to seek the assistance of an expert in providing financial wellness programs such as:
4. Nutrition Programs
Employees are what they eat! The importance of integrating a healthy diet into our everyday lives is vital to controlling health epidemics such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Hectic lifestyles and affordability however, can make adopting healthy eating habits challenging. By incorporating nutrition into wellness programs, employers can help employees lower their risk factors. Unique nutrition programs are leveraging technology and finding new ways to make changing what employees eat much more manageable and convenient.
Programs such as Nature’s Food Solutions provide assistance by linking healthy foods online to the convenience and affordability of home delivery. Edamam, a central online database for nutrition analysis and diet-driven meal recommendations uses technology to make accessing healthy food simple. Instant access to recipes for a balanced diet can be viewed through their app.
5. Health Content
While health content is not unique, vendors such as Health Feed use algorithms to pull existing health and wellness content from search engines that are tailored to each employee’s needs.
6. Expand Services Geographically
If you currently offer corporate wellness services to organizations in your local city or region only, you could broaden your horizons and offer services beyond your neighborhood without incurring the costs of a bricks and mortar building. With so many online tools and technologies available, you could easily offer online or telephonic services and programs that won’t break the bank to do it.
Companies of all sizes are looking for wellness providers that can conveniently and efficiently reach their remote employees. Improve your competitive edge by offering flexible services that can cater to these types of companies. The right technology partner can make all the difference to easily accommodate multiple tools, locations, countries and languages.
