Creator of worksite wellness challenges Health Enhancement Systems provides wellness coordinators 3 valuable ingredients for retaining participants with the SlideShare presentation, You Can Keep Wellness Participants Coming Back for More.
“Some wellness programs have a successful first year, then see participation drop off when it’s implemented the next,” remarks Dean Witherspoon, President and founder of Health Enhancement Systems, which creates popular online wellness campaigns like Walktober, Get Fit on Route 66, and Ola Ala. “To make up for low sign-ups, some coordinators use monetary incentives to entice more people to join. It may get more participants… at first… but it won’t keep them around for the long haul.”
In the recently published article Beating the Dead Horse of Wellness ROI, Witherspoon reinforces the idea that wellness programs shouldn’t be a financial benefit; instead, they should be so compelling that employees want to be a part of them. The presentation, You Can Keep Wellness Participants Coming Back for More, shows you how.
The 3 keys to successful, ongoing wellness campaigns are challenging goals, fun themes, and social connections. With these main ingredients, employers can build a culture of health -- where its easier for employees to make the right choices.
“To engage people year after year, you need to keep your wellness program fresh,” states Witherspoon. “That means campaigns participants can rally around -- ones that give them something to learn and do in a way that’s entertaining, while reinforcing their belief in their ability to be successful.”
