How comprehensive is your wellness programme?

In Corporate Wellness Blog by tailoredfit

Successful wellness programmes usually have a couple of things in common. Firstly, they have specific outcome goals; they have been designed to tackle specific health and wellbeing issues that companies are facing. Without this direction, wellness programmes end up being, at best, a nice perk.

The second thing successful programmes have in common is that they have specific programme targets. These targets are the markers of how well the programme is being utilised. They guide the process of iteration when adjusting a programme to hit the outcome goals. If a programme is not having the desired effect and yet your programme targets have been met, it may well be an indicator that your programme needs to be more comprehensive.
