Your employees have a lot on their plates … sometimes literally.
Weight management is one of those corporate wellness topics that comes up again and again, for a very good reason: It’s that important.
A newly released report by the Trust for America’s Health found that 16 states saw a rise in the rate of obesity over the past year. While that may give you hope for the other 34, it’s less encouraging when you hear that none of the 50 states reported a decline in obesity rates.
A grim picture for tomorrow, or an impetus to change things in your own little corner of the world?
If your efforts to promote weight loss and management thus far have fallen flat, you’re probably in the market for some new and hopefully more effective strategies.
Realistically, you’ll probably never see 100% participation in health and wellness initiatives among your staff members. There are simply too many people who would rather continue eating however much they want of whatever they please. (And parking it on the couch after a long day working behind a desk.)
In the meantime, you can hold out hope that the trickle-down effect will eventually sway the ones who are more resistant to healthy lifestyle changes.
Try these strategies to rekindle your employees’ commitment to weight loss and management:
