25 Jun BRAVO VP CO-AUTHORS GOVERNMENT FINANCE REVIEW ARTICLE
PROVEN TECHNIQUES FOR GETTING RETURNS FROM EMPLOYEE WELLNESS PROGRAMS
Congratulations to Bravo’s Chris Shanahan – Vice President, Business Development. Together with Shayne Kavanagh (GFOA) and Carey Adamson (Colonial Life and Accident Insurance Company), Chris co-authored a recent article in the Government Financial Officers Association’s bimonthly magazine, the Government Finance Review.
Entitled “Proven Techniques for Getting Returns from Employee Wellness Programs,” this article covers key strategies for
realizing ROI from employee wellness programs. Government agencies that already have wellness programs in place – or are considering implementing one soon – can compare their design
(or anticipated program designs) against the best practice criteria outlined throughout the article.
Suggested strategies include a focus on outcomes, the importance of communication, well-designed incentive structures, and the need to review and evaluate wellness programs regularly.
