Health Talks are easy to implement and highly effective. According to Community Eye Health Journal, the main advantage of Health Talks is that you can reach a fairly large group of people, all at once. Conversely, "discussions" are limited because to be effective, a mediator should only have an audience of about 10 people. Health talks also need relatively little preparation, especially if FitPros is managing the process. You can simply choose the talk topic you believe is the best fit for your demographic, and FitPros does the rest. Yes the rest! We extensively vet candidates to host your talk, and once the perfect match has been solidified, we work tirelessly to ensure you and your employees have a seamless experience. FitPros is capable of surveying your employee demographic, and determining the talk information they are in the most dire need of. However, often times being their leader, we imagine you have a pulse on what your employee's needs and wants are. If this is the case, FitPros suggest that you choose the talk topic that is the most relevant to the health problems and the culture of your community.
Check out this list of our top 10 most popular health talks. FitPros suggests that you bring a speaker in, once a month or once a quarter on a different topic. Consistency is key, and you may also be surprised at the lack of information your employees know about their most basic physical, mental, financial and emotional health.
