Each month every client receives our wellness engagement guide, equipped with practical takeaways and resources for creating top-down leadership support, building a wellness champion network and participant-ready, health-focused educational content. Each month focuses on a different wellness theme, like nutrition, exercise, habit change, or stress. The guide is updated annually with new information from wellness experts and physicians.
The key to improving any aspect of wellness is surprisingly simple: change your habits. Use this month to focus on the challenges of habit change and encourage your team to discuss what’s holding them back, what they’ve accomplished, and what new habits they’ve been hoping to adopt.
Supporting people through the challenging process of changing their habits isn’t always easy. That’s why we’ve created these monthly engagement guides for you—just a little support to keep your wellness resources and activities going strong year-round, no matter what.
