As employer sponsored programs gain momentum, more and more creative solutions are being offered to help motivate employees toward changing behaviors.
In an effort to improve employee health, fitness devices have quickly become a powerful way to incent goal setting and increased physical activity.
Lockton is excited to be one of three US based companies to take part in a new program via Apple and Vitality, a provider of disease-prevention and lifestyle programs. Lockton employees will soon have the opportunity to earn an Apple Watch just by exercising!
“This is an exciting expansion of the choices of wearable technology available for our Associates,” said Glenn Spencer, President of Lockton in the US and Chief Operating Officer. “We have created a very innovative wellness program, and this expands our efforts to encourage you to stay active and healthy.”
While the hard dollar medical/RX benefits of getting people moving may not be seen immediately, the value of the investment may be seen in other dividends such as increased productivity, reduced absenteeism and decreased turnover.
Whether it’s an Apple (watch) a day or some other device, getting employees more active and engaged in health and wellness programs is a powerful step in improving health, welfare AND the bottom line.
