Traditional approaches to wellness — “Wellness 1.0” — no longer hit the mark. Cookie cutter strategies focusing on things like employees’ blood pressure, whether they’ve completed a health risk assessment or if they belong to a gym do little to change behavior, meaning low usage and engagement.
Smith & Nephew has left Wellness 1.0 in the dust by supporting its employees' total quality of life — including physical, emotional, social and financial well-being — helping to mold a healthy, productive, highly engaged workforce. The company created a wellness program that boosts employee health and engagement, creating a stronger culture of overall well-being, and more focused, energetic people.
In this session, Andy Pfeifer of Smith & Nephew outlines how the company created the program, its rollout and where he’s seen the highest reward.
Key learning objectives:
- Why you should offer a robust wellness program.
- How to design it to drive employees’ productivity and engagement.
- How to measure its success and continue to evolve the program, driving greater employee engagement and better business results.
