Health promotion and prevention
Workplace health and wellness is all about culture, something we know a lot about. We analyze each company’s environment for a clearer picture and build a solid action plan to introduce, reinforce and maintain a true health and wellness culture.
How does it work? Three easy steps:
Diagnosis and engagement
Using a structured approach, our experts will guide you through all the steps: management buy-in, analyzing key indicators, setting up a health and wellness committee, an action plan, etc.
Health and wellness practices
Introducing practices that foster employee health and wellness is key to success: lifestyle habits, management practices, work environment and work/life balance—there are many areas to explore and we’ll be there to help you.
Tools promoting health and wellness
To help companies kick off their action plan, we give them access to tools promoting health and wellness: webinars, training, challenges and much more!
