Health Promotion from The Bailey Group
For The Health of It …
To begin, workplace wellness has no standard definition. There is no universally accepted wellness programming guide or “one-size fits all” program model. Realizing this, we want to help your organization determine where it fits along the wellness spectrum, and that is the Bailey Group Difference.
Staying Well is Wise in the Workplace
Several characteristics of the worksite itself, such as the amount of time people spend at work each week and the economic role of employers in the health of employees, make it an excellent place to conduct a wellness program.
A successful employee wellness program needs to be more than just a fragmented mix of individual program components. Changing lifestyles and health behavior takes a lot more than a 1-hour seminar or a 12-week aerobic exercise class. Long-term health behaviors like smoking, exercise, dietary habits, weight maintenance, stress responses and safety practices are very difficult to change and even more difficult to maintain. The design of the wellness program, strength of incentives, quality of the cultural change, and program implementation will correlate with the long-term success and sustainability of your wellness efforts.
Our Health Promotion team is ready and willing to design a workplace wellness strategy to bend the trend of rising healthcare costs.
