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.
- 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
