Corporate Wellness and Well-Being Programs
by FRESH Med in New York City


 
Wellness and well-being are not the same thing but they do influence each other. Well-being refers to a more holistic whole-of-life experience, whereas wellness refers just to physical health. Employers can have a big influence over employees’ wellbeing. The more wellness opportunities offered in the workplace, the higher sense of wellbeing each employee will experience.
— CDC and Gallup

OUR SERVICES:

Our dedicated team makes it easy for you to engage and empower employees in wellness programs by providing a 360 “Pro-Graham.” As FRESH, we offer planning and implementation services, promotional assistance, marketing materials and research.

We measure everything from health, productivity, engagement, presenteeism, happiness and cost.  Our programs are backed by research and our top priority is to work with clients to achieve positive outcomes.  After the program ends, we analyze the results of your employees’ evaluations to help you better understand and tailor your future corporate wellness needs. We provide a confidential report that can validate your investment in our FRESH “Pro-Graham.”


OUR RESEARCH:

Studies by Optum and others have shown that a company with a comprehensive wellness program can achieve the triple aim of:

1.  Reducing healthcare costs,

2.  Increasing employee engagement and productivity,

3.  Encouraging healthier and happier employees.

A more holistic approach to measuring your wellness program is to look at its value of investment, or VOI. It’s a broader and more detailed approach, and it goes much further than return of investment (ROI) does; ROI is a component of VOI.

 
In traditional wellness programs, we measure success by participation and ROI on medical costs, but in today’s approach it’s not about ROI. It’s about productivity, and business metrics, and retention, and customer satisfaction. It’s not about health and benefits in silos, but about broader well-being, and that includes social connectedness, financial security, emotional health and job satisfaction.” The old way of getting everybody to do the same thing is being abandoned.
— LuAnn Heinen, VP of the National Business Group on Health
