Adding the Magic to Your Wellness Program

A makeover isn’t magical, but it sure can feel that way! Making a single, strategic change to your workplace wellness program can be easy and worthwhile—and a successful makeover, regardless of its recipient, can boost confidence, energy and overall satisfaction!

Adding the Magic to Your Wellness Program

If you are looking to get your wellness program noticed in 2019, check out the International Foundation Workplace Wellness Makeover Tool Kit! The interactive PDF provides access to webcasts, articles, blogs and surveys filled with tips, best practices and research aimed at fostering a culture of well-being, driving engagement and impacting organizational performance.

Before jumping into your program’s renovation, consider watching the webcast Why Employees Dislike Wellness Programs and How to Change Their Mind-Set featuring CEO and founder of Wellness Workdays Debra Wein. Debra shares that the number one reason for low participation in wellness programs is lack of awareness followed by employees’ lack of time.
