Do you know what constitutes a successful results-oriented workplace wellness program? The Wellness Council of America says it does. In fact, WELCOA says it has identified seven benchmarks for success:

  • CEO support
  • Creating cohesive wellness teams
  • Collecting data to drive health efforts
  • Carefully crafting an operating plan
  • Choosing appropriate interventions
  • Creating a supportive environment
  • Carefully evaluating outcomes
If you are seeking to institute a program for your employees or think you need to retool your existing plan, WELCOA’s model may be of some value to you. You can take a look at the council’s “Absolute Advantage” report for guidance or, for a quicker overview, see the executive summary.
