We all know that employee health is vital to the success of any organization. Healthy employees mean productive working days, effective projects, and overall company success, not to mention lower health insurance costs. Not surprisingly, most companies today offer wellness programs that go beyond standard health insurance. Yet, a challenge for many companies that offer health and wellness programs is to get employees to utilize them. Often times, employees feel overwhelmed with the number of options available to them and they struggle to figure out how to access their wellness options.
A mobile application(app), such as the new patent-pending Continuwell mobile app, can help employees easily access their benefits and company services and increase engagement with the company. A recent Pew Research study found that about 77% of Americans own a smartphone. It is estimated that smartphone users spend about 1.8 hours every day on their devices, and that 89% of that mobile media time is on an app. Your organization can become part of that time.
Continuwell makes it easy for employees to access and use all of their company’s services by placing them all in one single mobile app. Employers are able to select the services to include and create a custom mobile app for their employees. In addition to Continuwell’s telehealth program, services such as fitness tracking, nutrition, wellness challenges, rewards, and incentives can all be included in the mobile application, so they are all accessible through a single mobile app. The best part is, the platform is flexible enough that services can be added and removed on demand.
For most HR directors, a major challenge is to get employees to download, register, and remember the services available to them. Employee engagement begins with employer engagement. With the Continuwell app, employers are able to send customized push notifications about company events and messages. Push notifications allow employers to take their company’s communications to the next level and encourage active participation with employees, who instantly see these messages on their phones. These notifications can even be designed to target specific employee groups.
