The right technology can save you time when managing workplace wellness
Managing a workplace wellness programme can be time-consuming, particularly if it is not the main function of your role. There is the development of a workplace wellbeing strategy, planning your calendar of events, sourcing, booking and paying service providers, promoting any events or initiatives to employees; it all adds up.
How can you save time when managing a workplace wellness programme? One solution is to use purpose-built software, making planning, implementing and managing your programme easier, faster and more effective.
In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at some of the benefits of using software to save time so you can execute a programme employees love, without taking away from other tasks.
Instant Access, Everywhere
Granting employees access to wellness resources wherever they are, whenever they want, saves wellbeing coordinators time that would otherwise be spent source and sharing useful content for their teams.
It also means employees are encouraged to take their wellbeing efforts home, increasing engagement and improving results.
Planning and Organising
Workplace wellbeing programmes work best when they are customised to the needs and wants of employees. This, however, can increase the amount of time spent managing a programme. Using comprehensive workplace wellbeing software not only enables you to cut down on the time and effort required to source and book service providers, but it also enables employees to pursue a personalized wellbeing path.
Visible data makes reporting easy
It’s likely that you spend quite a bit of time each month gathering data and preparing reports. Adding workplace wellness to this can increase the time spent on reporting but it doesn’t have to. Workplace wellbeing software should take care of the complexity in data mining. It means that without requiring any manual data gathering, organisations can harness the value of aggregated, anonymised data that is generated across platform registrations and visits. From the general interest that comes from using an app to the volume of event registrations, the level of analytical detail that is possible can show the difference a workplace wellbeing programme make to both individuals and the wider organisation. What’s more is, this data can be used to inform future plans based on the interests of employees. Notice that a high percentage of employees are engaging with nutrition content? Maybe a nutrition seminar is a good idea!
Ultimately, a wellbeing programme shouldn’t only be a tick-box exercise, but a valuable addition to employee experience and their overall wellbeing. Workplace wellbeing software fits seamlessly into existing workflows, with the functionality to allow for any efforts to be scaled up across multiple departments and markets too. The easier it is to deploy a wellbeing programme, the more powerful a tool it can be, and the more time you save in setting up your programme.
Support saves you time
While technology helps you to enhance experience and engagement when it comes to workplace wellbeing, there is still a lot to be said for the value in human support.
When it comes to making the most of your workplace wellbeing software, it can be useful to draw on the ongoing expertise of corporate wellness professional through your workplace wellbeing provider. They can help your organisation to realise the full potential of your wellbeing platform and provide ongoing support, so you don’t need allot large timeslots in your schedule to researching wellbeing.
