A wellness strategy sets out overall wellness objectives, priorities and targets for the organisation. This is developed using the experience and expertise of the internal wellness team, existing data, wellness assessment results as well as input from key partners such as Medmark Occupational Healthcare. The strategy will identify and prioritise your wellbeing objectives such as reduction in absenteeism, increased productivity, addressing presenteeism, retention, recruitment, employee engagement, etc.
Key components and aspects of a wellness strategy generally include:
- Strategic alignment
- Programme design
- Specific focus
- Communication and engagement
We have significant experience of working with clients to develop and adjust their wellness strategy. This is particularly relevant in the Irish market where many organisations are realising the importance of employee wellness and putting in place a formal strategy.
