Fitness & Wellness Program Management
Workplace fitness and wellness programs sponsored or co-funded by employers, engage employees in activities to improve health and well-being. These programs include various components, based on needs of the employers’ workforce:
Exercise elements – Group fitness classes and personal training.
Nutritional elements – Onsite nutritionists and health coaching.
Preventative elements – Health screening events and educational seminars or webinars.
Wellness programs may incorporate stress management resources, like musculoskeletal strengthening (MSK) classes. Fitness programs provide activities and information that educate and engage employees, to achieve better health and well-being. They yield impressive benefits by:
- incorporating evidence-based programming
- implementing best practices strategies
Why outsource fitness and wellness program management?
Wellness programs require a lot of detailed administration. Small companies don’t have enough HR staff to manage hiring, equipment sourcing, coordination, and the billing involved. On the other hand, large companies with multiple locations, may need to use multiple vendors, coordinating excessive details. This can be overwhelming to even a dedicated wellness team.
Employee wellness programs put employers at risk, too. That’s when wellness becomes a liability. If your company hires instructors for classes offered to employees, you’ll have to verify each instructor carries certification and liability coverage.
Did you know you could put your company at an even greater liability risk, if you:
- Purchase or lease equipment for an employee gym
- Offer periodic health screenings
- Provide educational seminars
- Organize nutritional advice
