How to reach across the generational gap in wellness

Let’s face it: millennials have a bad reputation in the workforce.  Often labeled as entitled, impatient, and always multitasking, millennials are seeking a “work-life” balance (often with most of the emphasis on life!). But as our workforce continues to age, millennials are here to stay. And employers with a wellness program are now tasked with designing a program that meets the unique needs of a multigenerational workforce.

A 20-something worker just out of college has different priorities and health risks than someone who has been in the workforce for several decades, and most wellness programs don’t have extra room in their budgets to offer programs that appeal to each generation.  So, how do you do it?

Here are some of the ways that we can reach all generations with our wellness programming:

Discover five ways a wellness portal helps build a thriving workforce

April 12, 2017

Most companies want to help their employees live healthier, more productive lives but struggle with how to implement a wellness program that fully engages their employees and moves the needle towards a happier workforce. Many companies also struggle with the time it takes to administer a wellness program. They have great intentions about getting their employees involved in their health but often don’t see the engagement that they would like. Traditional wellness programs typically involve biometric screenings and health risk assessments as standard tools to educate and raise awareness about individual health risks. These programs are a critical component of any wellness program because they help prevent chronic disease and identify health risks. The most powerful and successful wellness programs build on these standard offerings and go beyond assessment tools by providing members affordable, on-going wellness services that promote and encourage all aspects of well-being including...
