In recent times, Indian corporations are increasingly prioritizing employee well-being, reshaping the landscape of workplace wellness programs. While this trend is on the rise, some companies have struggled to create successful wellness plans. Experts at Zenzo noted a survey indicating that nearly 50% of the Indian workforce faces workplace stress, contributing to physical health risks such as hypertension and diabetes. Ziqitza Health Care Limited is a leader in the healthcare industry. With a focus on preventive healthcare measures, Ziqitza Limited aims to reduce the burden on the healthcare system by addressing health issues proactively.

Studies including one by RAND Corp, reveal limited impacts on weight loss and cholesterol control in workplace wellness programs. Another critical observation is that the unhealthiest 20% of employees drive 80% of healthcare costs, often overlooked by wellness initiatives.

Sweta Mangal -Director & CEO at Zenzo, emphasizes that an ideal corporate wellness program should benefit both employee health and overall business outcomes. The key pillars for a successful Corporate Wellness Plan lie in engagement, strategy, and motivation.

Invest in Employee Assessment:

Understanding employee behaviour is crucial. Utilize tools like the Health Risk Appraisal or conduct surveys aligned with CDC guidelines to comprehend employee needs better. Health Risk Assessment aids in assessing the work environment, facilitating tailored wellness programs.

Form Goals & Objectives:

Mr. Praveen Meneses – COO at Zenzo Health, says “ Post-assessment, design clear organizational goals, aligning them with motives such as health improvement, cost reduction, absenteeism reduction, productivity boost, and increased retention. Objectives will vary based on company culture and employee needs.

Budget for the Program:

Include incentives, marketing, and program design costs in the budget. Factors like vendor fees, program incentives, and wellness technology costs should be considered when finalizing the budget.

Establish Wellness Program Components:

Finalize components based on employee surveys, assessments, and budget. Common program types include weight loss, smoking cessation, disease management, preventive care, and on-site medical facilities.

Develop Wellness Rewards/Incentives and Written Wellness Policy:

Publish clear guidelines and handbooks outlining the wellness program. Launch the program during a wellness fair, ensuring effective communication of benefits to encourage employee participation.
