How to Help Employees/Members Adopt Healthy Behavior Changes That Last

Live interactive Audio Webcast scheduled for 
September 16, 2010 at 1:30 EDT

MANASQUAN, N.J.,  September 7, 2010 —Workplace wellness managers are responsible for developing program offerings that result in lasting behavior change.

Without behavior change that ‘sticks’ and becomes a habit for your participant, you can’t adequately prove the return-on-investment (ROI) of your organization’s wellness program.

If you can’t show your boss your program’s ROI, getting significant support for your program is impossible.

Facts:

  • One in five American adults smoke but half of the smoking population tries and fails to quit each year.
  • Two-thirds of people are obese or overweight. Yet, 95 percent of diet plans fail.
  • Seventy percent of premature death and aging is lifestyle related -- a result of bad health habits.

    Veteran wellness professionals know that creating lasting behavior change in the workplace is no easy task.

    Long-range organizational support for your budget hinges on the long-term success of your program results. "Show Me The Money."

    Amazingly, only 19 percent of companies surveyed measured employee behavior change as a measure of success of their health and productivity programs, according to a Hewitt survey.

    However, more than half of employers are expected to reverse this emphasis by planning to measure employee behavior change and/or behavior modification. This is you opportunity to get ready for the coming changes.
