Description
Without knowing it, employers are often spending money on wellness activities that do not get the desired results or worse yet, they don’t know what they did or didn’t get!
1.       Wise choices begin with “doing the homework” of assessing what is: already in place, already paid for, driving health-related costs up, and staff resources
Presenter will describe the assessment process and provide a worksite wellness scoresheet.
2.       Wise spending begins with only spending money on: what you don’t already have, taking advantage of what’s available for free, prioritizing, careful budgeting, making sure you “get what you paid for!”
Presenter will provide a resource checklist to identify what the organization already has such as safety staff, insurance broker, space for indoor and/or outdoor workouts, discounts, potential co-op situations, parks, local farmer’s market, etc.). Attendees will also be provided with list of free resources available through not-for-profit organizations government, free worksite wellness kits and wellness collaborative.
A.       Prioritizing can be by high impact, low cost, program rollout timeline, and/or “low hanging fruit”. Close examination of assessment will identify these options.
Presentation will include samples of each of these considerations.
B.       Budgeting will take into consideration what is really necessary to achieve the desired outcome. Using best practices employers can determine expected return on investment relative to the wellness initiatives put in place and considerations.
Presentation will include a grid of program activities & the related expected return on investment.
C.       Specific measureable goals, objectives, data collection and evaluation tell the story of “getting what you paid for.”
Presentation will include sample goals, objectives, data collection methods and evaluation process.
D.        Samples of low-cost and effective programs in a variety of businesses
Presenter will share experiences with what other businesses have done.
