Through Employees' Eyes: Wellness Initiatives that Engage

A 2014 Gallup study reported that only 24% of employees at companies that offer wellness programs actually participate in it*. So this number demonstrates that wellness programs just aren’t worth the effort, right? Wrong. Instead, this number shows is a lack of employee engagement. Successful wellness programs have proven to be effective in decreasing absenteeism, increasing productivity, decreasing healthcare costs, and reducing turnover, among other positives. But if employees aren’t engaged, even the best-intentioned wellness initiatives can fall flat.

To avoid this, think about what really matters to your employees, and what programs or services can deliver real value. What do you think is one of the biggest struggles for your employees? Perhaps the term “work-life balance” is flashing through your mind right now.

That’s right. Life as a working professional is a busy one. And thanks to modern technology, the “9 to 5” schedule is largely a thing of the past. As a result, doctor’s appointments often aren’t prioritized as highly as they should be. Can you, as an HR professional, stop the madness of the ultra-connected world? No. But you can make it easier for your employees to take care of their health, while engaging them in your wellness program at the same time.

On-site eye exams through 2020 On-site Optometry is a unique benefit that will 1) engage your employees through high participation rates, 2) emphasize preventative healthcare in the workplace and 3) make you look like a rockstar to your workforce!

While this is all true, we realize we are biased, which is why we’re sharing a case study featuring one of 2020’s premier Boston clients. The case study, based on an independent survey conducted by the company, highlights 2020’s success in the 3 categories above, and more.
