Employee Health is Part of Today's Employee Engagement

“A health plan without effective wellness is just a claims administration program — it does not improve employee health”

A culturally integrated wellness program increases employee retention and affinity, two of the most significant challenges facing employers this year. As the workforce reenters a more stabilized environment, employees will be considering their options and evaluating their choices. According to recent studies, nearly 1 in 4 workers in the US are considering leaving their employer this year.

Employers are faced with both a challenge and an opportunity. Strong, vibrant wellness programs foster engagement among employees, and can be a competitive advantage in recruitment. As employees consider a move, they are looking closely at how the organization treats its employees. More than 80% of employees now expect employers to support work-life balance. By approaching the population with empathy and consideration, employers are quickly finding ways to use their wellness program to their advantage.

The modern approach to employment has drawn a inarguable correlation between engagement and well-being. Employees with both high engagement and a sense of well-being are 30% less likely to miss work, show a 20% boost in productivity, and are more likely to recommend the company. As employees engage more they feel a better sense of well-being and as they feel safer, they engage more.

89% of employees whose companies support well-being are likely to recommend their company.

employee engagement is inextricably tied to better health

Employee engagement is a fluid term used loosely by wellness companies to describe how invested their population is and how actively they are participating. Most wellness programs, particularly platform-centric programs, measure engagement using simple, shallow methods. Registration on a portal is a constructive first step, but bears little correlation to a true change in that individuals health and life choices. Many employees register and forget it, moving back to the same unhealthy habits that an employer is seeking to change.

Our Program Managers take a different approach. CHP Program Managers are persistent, guiding employees through a series of contact points to gather personal health information and acclimate employees to the idea of managing their wellness through information and activities. “What gets measured gets done” is our approach to engagement.

Employees with high engagement and a sense of well-being are 59% less likely to pursue a job change within the year.

real employee engagement

We measure engagement far deeper than most wellness vendors. With a voluntary participation rate above 90% and a satisfaction rate of over 85% our Coaches and Program Managers are able to form trusting, lasting relationships with employees helping tailor our programs to their individual needs. While our competition may cite their engagement numbers as high, those numbers often reflect a shallow view of what engagement represents.

At CHP, our Coaches and Program Managers apply a systematic series of contact points combining digital registrations, biometric data gathering, and personal contacts to ensure employees get on track and stay on track to meet the goals of the organization. When we say our process is leaps and bounds ahead of our competitors, we mean it.

technology is an enhancement, not a replacement

technology helps employees track and see success

Technology alone doesn’t guarantee the success of company wellness programs, but it can help participants learn, track goals, and see success - which keeps the employee engaged and reinforces healthy behavior. The integration of wearables and platform help employees stay on track easier and more reliably, helping reinforce their own accountability.

When coupled with proactive programs, the data from these technologies can be applied by our Program Managers and Health Coaches to fine-tune employees’ plans for optimal results. Our platforms also help employers track and understand overall population trends more accurately, leading towards better decision making as they build a culture of wellness.
