Best 5 Wellness Management Companies in 2022
Regardless of the size of a wellness program, all organizations have to manage the day-to-day administration. But the type of help each organization may need is different. Today we’re outlining the types of solutions an organization may need and spotlighting five companies to partner with.
What Type of Management Is Right for My Organization?
Most companies start their wellness programs with their HR teams managing them. As the company and its wellness program grows, the complexity of running the wellness program within the organization requires a wellness program manager or outsourced help.
The core responsibilities of a wellness program manager:
- Designs, implements, and evaluates the wellness program
- Markets and promotes offerings to the organization
- Works with wellness vendors
- Communicates the wellness program’s value to stakeholders
Organizations that are looking to have their wellness programs managed have a few options:
- Hire a wellness program manager themselves
- Hire a third-party to place a wellness program manager
- Hire a wellness consultant/group to manage the wellness program
- Work with a vendor who takes on aspects of a program manager as part of their service
Many organizations can go with option three and four. The organizations that choose the first two options tend to be larger both in employee count and wellness program size.
Smaller organizations and organizations with developing wellness programs typically continue to have their HR teams manage their programs. With the right wellness partner, the additional work to run the wellness program is routine.
Large organizations with developed wellness programs turn to Strive for placing full-time wellness program managers. Our large nationwide network of wellness specialists gets organizations quick placement for wellness program managers.
