How to develop a Healthy, Happy and Effective Workforce

How to develop a Healthy, Happy and Effective Workforce

With the new year upon us, we will struggle to find many people who have not made new year resolutions around improving their health, fitness and well-being.  We all know that people drive profit and so having a fitter and healthier workforce is never going to be a bad thing!  As an employer, through the use of technology, it is becoming easier and easier to support this on both a local and global level.

The​ ​connection​ ​among​ ​wellness, workforce​ ​effectiveness and​ ​organisational​ ​health​ ​is​ ​influencing the​ ​development​ ​of​ ​new​ ​strategies​ ​to​ ​deliver​ ​a​ ​more​ ​compelling​ ​and​ ​mutually​ ​beneficial employment​ ​deal​ ​between​ ​individual​ ​and​ ​organization.

One​ ​thing​ ​is​ ​for​ ​certain; ​ ​regardless​ ​of​ ​your​ ​employee​ ​activity, ​ ​health​ ​and​ ​wellness​ ​strategy, ​ ​there​ ​is without​ ​doubt​ ​one​ ​component​ ​that​ ​is​ ​essential​ ​to​ ​ensure​ ​your​ ​program​ ​is​ ​a​ ​success:

And that is Technology!

Without​ ​specific​ ​technology​ ​to​ ​support​ ​your​ ​program​ ​exposure, ​ ​roll​ ​out, ​ ​management​ ​and​ ​tracking, then​ ​any​ ​global​ ​initiative​ ​will​ ​struggle, ​ ​and​ ​is​ ​more​ ​likely​ ​to​ ​stall​ ​or​ ​even​ ​fail​ ​in​ ​the​ ​long​ ​term. The​ ​right​ ​technology​ ​helps​ ​you​ ​automate​ ​the​ ​process.

 ​It: 

  • Ensures​ ​immediate​ ​exposure​ ​and​ ​fast​ ​roll​ ​out​ ​to​ ​all​ ​parties
  • Helps​ ​manage​ ​all​ ​aspects​ ​of​ ​the​ ​program and measures​ ​results​ ​to​ ​encourage​ ​engagement
  • Integrates​ ​the​ ​program​ ​with​ ​your​ ​company​ ​goals​ ​and​ ​mission
  • Promotes​ ​healthy​ ​competition​ ​between​ ​departments​ ​and​ ​branches and provides​ ​regular​ ​reporting​ ​to​ ​assess​ ​engagement
  • Measures​ ​reward​ ​process​ ​on​ ​an​ ​individual​ ​and​ ​group​ ​level
  • Builds​ ​community and helps​ ​make​ ​the​ ​program​ ​fun​ ​and​ ​inviting
