Incentives encourage employees to adopt positive behaviors or maintain an existing positive behavior that may potentially help the worker stay healthful and live longer. Adopting positive health behavior is fundamentally what wellness is about.
Incentives can be used to raise participation rates, help individuals complete a Health Promotion Program, or help individuals change or adhere to healthy behaviors.
Providing incentives and rewards will send an important message to the workforce that your corporation is committed to assisting them with bettering their health. It also plays a meaningful role in arousing individuals to participate.
Tips on how to pick appropriate incentives –
Identify through an staff member survey what incentives they value.
Identify what incentives the corporation can provide as well as what the budget will allow.
Ensure that every participant who achieves a goal receives some recognition.
Prevent offering incentives for the “best” or the “most.”
Prevent using food as a reward.
Use incentives to promote your Health Promotion Program, through logos and branding.
