Tips for a successful program

  1. Get your company's leadership on board. If they're not already aware, show them the potential return on investment for employee health programs. Ask them to participate in the effort and be one of your role models.
  2. When you're ready to start, encourage your company leader to promote the new policy or program in communications to all employees. Get sample messages
  3. As you get started, choose one or two policies or programs that make sense for your co-workers and work environment. There are lots of ideas provided in our guides and Resource Hub. Don't feel that you must do everything at once.
  4. Let the effort evolve over time. Get feedback and refine your approach to ensure that the program or policy remains relevant, feasible, and supportive of employees' goals.
  5. Regularly share tips, tools, and information on healthy habits with your co-workers and their families. Use the tools that work best for your organization: email, company newsletters, intranet, signage, posters, etc. Get ideas.
