Wellness programs have been around for years, but many organizations are now questioning the value of these programs and rightfully so. Almost all wellness programs focus on individual change without addressing the underlying cultural and environmental conditions that lead to and reinforce unhealthy behaviors. As a result, the vast majority of people fail to achieve health improvement goals because they lack the support and resources needed for long-term success.

Many of us have had good intentions going into initiatives like weight loss challenges, newsletters, and other wellness programs, but we have often been frustrated by a lack of engagement and little impact.

The good news? When designed strategically and with a culture-focused approach, wellness programs can serve as recruitment and retention tools, boost morale and camaraderie, and improve employee health.

Rachel Druckenmiller, Wellness Director at Silberstein Insurance Group, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Blogger, will set the stage for how to make positive culture changes at work
