PR Log - Feb 06, 2012 - MediFit, a global leader in corporate wellness and fitness management, will make available the full suite of Health Enhancement Systems behavior change programs focused on fitness, nutrition, weight control, and energy/stress management. “The alignment builds on our strengths of program design, delivery, and management,” notes Bill Bourque, Chief Operating Officer at MediFit. “This partnership also gives us another way to reinforce our clients’ high level of engagement in health improvement. The Health Enhancement Systems reputation for exceptional service made this decision to join forces an easy one.”
“We’re thrilled to be working with MediFit,” reports Dean Witherspoon, President of Health Enhancement Systems. “Their commitment to partnering with major corporations and communities to create a culture of health fits our programs perfectly, building on our proven social support techniques to inspire behavior change.”
• Challenging goals. The programs set a high bar so participants experience progress toward the goal. Changing habits established over years or decades is difficult, so there needs to be a sense of accomplishment along the way to reinforce continued effort. Health Enhancement Systems is known for exceptional engagement and progress tools like trails, stamps, tote boards, travel themes, game shows, etc.
• Fun themes. Every wellness program has an interesting theme and compelling visuals — usually with the opportunity to learn something beyond the health issue (such as fascinating national/international sites). The company puts extensive energy into this aspect of campaigns — evidenced by thousands of compliments from excited participants each year.
• Social support. Health Enhancement Systems built teams, buddies, and social interaction tools into wellness programs long before it was fashionable. Although the company strongly believes health is a personal responsibility, there’s no question that participants are more likely to be successful if those around them are supportive. - - -
