Worksite Wellness Programs Inspire Employees to Move More, Eat More Produce, Have More Fun
PR Log - Oct 14, 2011 - Health Enhancement Systems announces the 2012 Wellness Resources catalog (http://www.hesonline.com/catalog), featuring the knock-your-socks-off worksite health promotion programs that have built their excellent reputation for more than 19 years. The popular turnkey solutions — used by thousands of organizations and millions of participants — are centered on 3 simple ideas:
•Challenging goals, practical tools. Health Enhancement Systems sets a high bar and gives participants the chance to experience progress toward wellness goals. They go to exceptional lengths to create simple logging and other tools (like MapWalk (www.MapWalk.com) for maximum appeal. Walktober (www.walktober.com), for example, gets participants walking with an interactive fall colors trail and easy tracking — so they see real-time advancement along the trail while enjoying spectacular images of North America’s most beautiful fall foliage.
“Once again, Walktober received our highest participation of all the challenges we offer our employees. The ease of the website combined with the enhancement of MapWalk proves to be a favorite among our employees.” — Nicole Chaudet, Florida Power and Light
Other resources, like recipes and daily tips, keep participants interested, motivated, and inspired.
•Engaging, fun themes. Every Health Enhancement Systems corporate wellness program has an interesting theme (from travel to seasonal to sports, and more) and compelling visuals — usually with the opportunity to learn something beyond the health issue. Great American Fitness Adventure (www.greatamericanfitnessadventure.com), for instance, takes participants across the US from east to west. As participants visit exhilarating spots — caverns to mountaintops and oceans to deserts — they’re inspired to be active in the great outdoors. The program includes 300 stunning images of America’s natural treasures, dozens of activities to choose from, and a clever interactive park sticker tracking tool.
•Social support. Health Enhancement Systems built teams, buddies, and social interaction into corporate wellness programs long before it was fashionable. Health is a personal responsibility, but everyone is more likely to succeed when surrounded by supportive people. 5 on 5 (www.5on5.com) is a campaign that takes advantage of tournament basketball excitement, inspiring participants to step to the line and dramatically improve eating habits. Each day, teams tip off, scoring points when players make healthy food choices — it’s positive peer pressure for better nutrition.
From All In (www.allinfamilyhealth.com) and Feel Like a Million (www.ifeellikeamillion.com) to Colorful Choices (www.colorfulchoices.com) and Green Planet Wellness (www.greenplanetwellness.com), every Health Enhancement Systems corporate wellness program engages participants and makes healthy living enjoyable.
“Each program is unique, fun, and motivating for our population. All of the Health Enhancement Systems employees are professional, helpful, and quick to respond.” — Alissa T. Willet, North Carolina Association of County Commissioners
Health Enhancement Systems designs each campaign with the corporate wellness manager in mind. Ready-to-use emails, posters, presentations, fliers, and more make recruiting participants easy; implementation guides and streamlined dashboards take the guesswork out of launching, monitoring, and evaluating corporate wellness programs.
“Your extra efforts are always appreciated and keep me coming back to Health Enhancement Systems!” — Neil Hertsch, Monterey County Schools Insurance Group
Health Enhancement Systems is the clear leader in this segment of the wellness market. Their successful programs inspire large segments of the population to actually do something to improve health — not just learn about it.
“Many people don’t even know how good they can feel. Lasting behavior change is the key to thriving — at home and at work,” notes Dean Witherspoon, CEO and founder of Health Enhancement Systems. “When corporate wellness managers deliver programs that engage and inspire, everybody wins — with better health, cost savings, and enhanced quality of life.
