Creating health promotion and worksite wellness solutions since 1992.
Introduction
Serious About Having Fun With Employee Wellness?

How many ways can you motivate someone to eat more vegetables and exercise? Quite a few, it turns out. In fact, at Health Enhancement Systems we’ve been creating knock-your-socks-off worksite health promotion programs for more than 15 years centered on 3 simple ideas: 
  • Challenging goals. We set a high bar and give participants the chance to experience progress toward the goal. Changing habits established over years or decades is hard, so there needs to be a sense of accomplishment along the way to reinforce continued effort. It’s the reason we go to exceptional lengths to create engagement and progress tools like trails, stamps, tote boards, travel themes, game shows, etc. 
  • Fun themes. Every wellness program we create has an interesting theme and compelling visuals — usually with the opportunity to learn something beyond the health issue (such as the travel idea). We put more energy into this aspect of our campaigns than anyone… and it shows — we get thousands of compliments from excited participants each year. 
  • Social support. We built teams, buddies, and social interaction tools into our wellness programs long before it was fashionable. Although we’re clear that health is a personal responsibility, there’s no question that you’re more likely to be successful if those around you are supportive.

But just because your employees, members, or clients are having a blast participating in our campaigns, doesn’t mean we take worksite wellness lightly. We’re 100% focused on results. It’s why some of the largest corporate health promotion programs are long-term clients. And it’s why small community colleges trust us as a central part of their wellness program year after year. 

So check out our products. Sign up for a demo. Register for our e-newsletter. Download our white papers. Call us — 800.326.2317 — we want to help you get serious about having fun with employee wellness.
