Your Employee Wellness
Programmes should be integrated into the workplace structure by using these strategies
education that relies on valid, credible sources and is focused on employee skill
that are incorporated into existing employee programs;
screening linked with medical care for follow-up on modifiable risk
Wellness programs must address the needs of all employees at a given workplace, regardless
of gender, age, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, culture, job type, or physical
or intellectual capacity.
Worksite wellness programs should be designed to be
culturally sensitive and all-inconclusive, and employers should also consider
targeted, complementary interventions for their more vulnerable employees that
are specifically designed to engage those who are economically challenged, less
educated or under served (Carnethon et al, 2009).
Here at Full Health,
we can ensure that your wellness programs run efficiently and cost-effectively.
Through using our online, next-generation platform we automate and streamline the
health screening process, eliminating paper and improving the experience. We
can produce personalised employee health reports post-screening and based on
these, we can produce population group reports that allow for tailored
interventions and education programmes to be initiated.
