A wellness plan is an action plan to support your physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. Experts say that wellness practices like eating healthy foods, incorporating stress relievers into your day, and practicing mindfulness may help you live a better life, so it's worthwhile to build a plan that works for you.
An employer-sponsored wellness program aims to address one or more health issues to help prevent or manage disease. Take your program to the next level through a social wellness platform that can track progress, integrate with fitness devices, and incentivize success. The complexity of the program depends on the desired outcomes and wellness strategy your company has defined.
Some employers take a wild guess and simply guess or randomly select the best benefit to start with. Take out the guesswork and find your focus through the health risk assessment. Once you complete the HRA you can meet with your personal health coach privately and confidentially. They will be able to set your focus on where to begin.
