Progress Based Insentives

Employee engagement is consistently rated one of the top wellness program challenges. For worksite wellness programs to be effective, the vast majority of your employees need to participate. Otherwise, non-participants will develop health conditions faster than those who do participate.

Earn Points Through Participation

Ideally, every employee will invest in his or her health and truly engage with your program. Reaching this ultimate goal of an engaged workforce doesn't have to be a shot in the dark. More Active offers several tools in order to keep your clients on track. The foundation to track performance is to earn points through participation. Experts are able to analyze the overall performance of their group and see real data on how they are performing.

Potential ways to earn point are:

  • Signing up for the program
  • Filling out daily activities with their calendar
  • Completing a standard HRA or screening
  • Completing a workout or daily meal plan
  • Reading an article based on their risk factors

User Achievements and Performance Ladders

Some employees still won't participate even if it costs them nothing. They will participate, however, if they get a definitive benefit from doing so. Educate them about the Affordable Care Act and about their preventative care benefits. The majority of your employees are still unaware of their modifiable health risks such as blood pressure and cholesterol measurement.

Take it one step further and offer performance based encouragement such as:

  • Bonuses
  • Gift Cards
  • Merchandise
  • Money
  • Paid Time Off
  • Health Plan Premium Reductions

Increase Employee Engagement and Motivate Employees

Engagement is what you should strive for in your wellness program. In order to truly see results, and improve the health of your workforce, you need employees who will invest in themselves rather than check boxes and go through the motions. Employees who are engaged in your wellness program will do the logistical requirements to be part of the program, but will also probably:

  • Set individual goals for themselves
  • Take part in the extra or optional wellness activities you promote
  • Continue a healthy lifestyle outside of the workplace
  • Ultimately see results and become a happier, healthier person

Lifestyle Change Programs

Setting goals for your program will provide guidance and direction so that you clients will have a clear vision of what they want to achieve and how you are going to deliver it. Goals also give you something to measure against and determine whether your program is achieving its objectives or not. Here are a few example progams our clients have impleted for their wellness programs:

  • Present Monthly seminars on health related issues
  • Administer ongoing fitness & strength testing
  • Assist employees with loading their online profile information
  • Deliver on site group fitness classes
