How to encourage manufacturing employees to be healthy

It is a known fact that healthier and engaged employees lead to a better workplace and company bottom line. As a result, many of us are investing in wellness programs and other resources to achieve a healthier workplace. Some common programs include telemedicine, rewards programs, mental health (EAP), financial wellness, weight loss, smoking cessation, and discounted gym memberships, to name a few.

Unfortunately, offering the resources alone, do not inherently keep people healthy. Some of the companies that came to us, for example, had less than a 5% engagement with some of their programs that were costing thousands of dollars to run.

For customers looking to improve employee health and wellness and take advantage of the resources that they are already paying for, Continuwell uses a combination of people, mobile technology and ease communication to create trust, bring awareness, and encourage the behaviors. Once we implement Continuwell and create trust, we can more easily encourage behavior change. A longtime customer, for example, started a new program for a gym membership. They were surprised with how quickly we were able to encourage usage of gym membership: over 60% enrollment in the first two months!
