Keep Wellbeing Top of Mind in 2023

Posted by Taylor Hahn

wellbeing culture

As we move into a new year, many businesses are considering implementing or enhancing their wellbeing programs due to the continued rise in healthcare costs along with improving their overall employee wellbeing. In addition, organizations are focused on creating a culture of wellbeing in order to better attract and retain employees. 

In 2020, the health care costs of people with at least one chronic condition were responsible for 86% of health care spending. More than half of all American adults have at least one chronic condition.

Therefore, even small employers cannot afford to not address employee wellness (CDC, 2020). Employers who implement a wellbeing program can see increased productivity, reduced time away from work, reduced disability costs, decreased healthcare costs through cost avoidance and high financial return on investment (Shared Values Shared Results, 2016).

At R&R Insurance, we know our clients fall into a wide spectrum on their wellbeing journey. With that in mind, we created a Workplace Wellness Guide with six steps to wellness success! Workplace wellbeing programs can be daunting to begin or evaluate, so we've streamlined the process to include six easy to follow steps.

Throughout the document, you will: 

  1. Create a Wellness Team
  2. Collect Data
  3. Develop an Operating Plan
  4. Choose Appropriate Health Initiatives
  5. Create a Supportive Environment
  6. Consistently Evaluate Outcomes

There are plenty of credible resources throughout the guide so employers who currently have a turnkey wellness program will still find it beneficial as well as employers who are starting from grassroots. We hope you find this information helpful to begin and evaluate your wellbeing culture. 

If you are interested in the guide and/or discussing wellness programming further please reach out to our Strategic Wellbeing Consultant, Taylor Hahn.
