Engaging Employees in their Health

Engaging Employees in their Health

Employee Engagement has 4 vital components:

1. Motivation
2. Personalization
3. Attainable
4. Accountable


Motivation is individual. Where vanity motivates one overweight person, another overweight person may embrace their weight. Fear of death or disease motivates some to “know their numbers”, but others find ignorance blissful. Financial incentives can motivate short term, but this costly practice rarely evokes a lifestyle change. Some find peer pressure or competition to be motivating, while others find these to be demeaning and demoralizing. Communicating multiple messages over multiple mediums captures the interest of more people. A company’s wellness effort must allow for a wide array of messages, activities, programs, and resources in order to engage more people in their own health.
