Your Success Formula. To make engagement easier, we’ve identified the 3 major, interdependent elements for a successful engagement strategy:
- Grab attention
There are many ways to grab attention. But, to be cost-effective in the long run, your program should use engagement techniques
that simultaneously grab attention, build trust, and promote health dreams. It also helps to understand the power of intrinsic forces
and the role of financial incentives
. While there’s a lot to know and do, we’ll happily make it much easier for you to find and use the most cost-effective engagement techniques
- Build trust
Trust is essential for an effective program, because (among other reasons) it helps you efficiently grab attention and promote your target behaviors
. In some cases, employees are hesitant to trust health-related information offered by employers. As this Gallup poll
shows, they have even less trust in information from health insurers.
- Promote your people’s health dreams
Your people don’t excited about or pay much attention to disease management or HRAs. Rather, they get excited about and pay attention to things that can help them achieve their Health Dreams. If your engagement techniques appeal to their Health Dreams
, they’ll be more effective. To learn more about Health Dreams, click here
