For Employers

Why do we need to engage a Wellness 2000 when wellness information is offered through our health plan? 2017-08-24T19:00:16+00:00

Health information does not change or modify behavior – you need professional services and resources to achieve true behavior modification.

Yes, HealthVantage provides multiple options in regards to programs and can deliver a program that is customized to your worksite. Your employees and situation are unique why shouldn’t your program be the same.

What is my role in implementing and maintaining our organization’s wellness program? 2017-08-24T18:47:36+00:00

This is up to you and your organization. Do you want to fly the plane or just tell us where you want to land. HealthVantage can be a simple provider of services at your guidance or we can allow you to focus more of your time and energy on the job you were hired for and we would utilize you as a point of contact within the organization to consult with as we implement the programs you tell us you want.

How do we know whether the program has been successful? 2017-08-24T18:48:18+00:00

It will not be a matter of knowing the program is successful – it will start as a feeling it is a success. You will begin to see a change in the employees and feel a new level of energy within the organization. Employees will start to talk about the wellness initiatives and health in general. There will be a new (or renewed) interest in activities beyond their job requirements. Of course the hope is that absenteeism and presenteeism will decrease, workplace injuries will decrease and the quality of work and quality of life will improve as well.
