Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing and Peak Human Performance.
Any business motivational speaker will tell you that the success of these programs is usually dependent on the extent to which the people participate in the program. Just a few years ago, the idea of having incentives for wellness programs was very new. Companies have been known to offer cash incentives to encourage their employees to take health assessments and some even give out gifts for participating in biometric screening.
Times have however, changed and the trends are changing too. Most employers are now looking at a different strategy and new approach of outcome-based incentive programs. This means that the incentives are tied to the results of the program. Some companies have been on record saying that employees who are not participating in the programs should pay a fine.
This approach is likely to spark some resistance within the organizations. This means that you need to adopt a more traditional method to achieve the same goal. Here are some tips:
- Get the top management to inform the organization about the aim of the program
- Be clear about the use of the data collected and who can access the data
- Give surveys to the employees and ask them what they want
Business motivational speakers will say that the best approach is largely dependent on the culture of the organization.
