what does it look like when a culture of health exists? something like this:
- A healthy workplace is part of the company’s business strategy.
- Wellness is not a program, but a way of being and working. Wellness seeps into workload, work structure and work-life.
- Health and wellness programs are evidence-based and integrated.
- Innovation and trial-and-error are part of the mix.
- Disconnects between messages and day-to-day reality are constantly surfeited out.
- Incentives reward for taking first steps and for progress made.
- Communications are organized according to users’ needs, not the needs of program owners or vendors.
- Employees and their families can get the information 24/7, no matter where they are.
- Social media and social networks are used thoughtfully, facilitating real conversations in real language.
- Health doesn’t end at the office door.
