Wellworks For You to Offer New Employee Mental Wellbeing Products
by Wellworks For You
Mental health disorders are among the most burdensome health concerns in the United States. The World Health Organization has found that investing in mental wellness is worth it, as for every $1 put into scaled up treatment for common mental disorders, there is a ROI of $4 in improved health and productivity. A 2019 survey by Mental Health America found that 66% of workers reported that workplace issues negatively affect their sleep and 24% of workers have taken time off because of stress.
Due to these alarming statistics, Wellworks For You has developed new programs that focus on the overall mental well-being of employees. One program is the WellBalance Portal. Over the course of 10 months, participants will complete a comprehensive mental wellbeing plan of action. To start, participants will complete a pre-program survey followed by the MindQ mental wellbeing assessment. The assessment will assess workplace effectiveness, productivity, absence, presence and health. The additional components will include Knowledge 8, which is a video and e-learning series for the 8 pillars of wellness that includes quizzes, education and interactive gamification. In our Focus5 component, participants focus their energy on specific areas of personal interest to improve overall mental health and perspective of daily life through journaling and action plans. The next component, Wholesome Habits, will allow you to apply your wellbeing knowledge. Over eight weeks, participants will have to complete a minimum of 20 healthy habits and self-report to complete the program. The ten-month program is finalized with a survey for final personal reporting on improvements.
Several other resources will be available to employees such as a Mental Wellbeing Library that provides an expansive library of articles, quizzes, videos and education. Mindful Messaging keeps participants engaged in their program through emails, text messages and both portal pop-up and banner notifications.
WellBalance can also be supplemented with an Employee Assistance Program, to assist them in various areas of their health, mental and emotional wellbeing including personal problems and work-related problems that may impact their job. The program is available to all family members including access to personalized coaching, assessments, resources and multiple levels of education. Additional supplemental options include a financial wellness platform that includes tools that provide a personalized individual analysis and goal-setting report. Based upon your personal results, targeted videos and documents will populate within your own page with the ability to opt-in for push notifications to even further your financial wellbeing knowledge.
In addition to the above program, Wellworks For You offers wellness challenges that supports mental wellbeing and are very popular among clients. These challenges are not only easy to participate in, but they are a great way to boost overall morale, improve health and have a good time at work. Keep reading for a few reasons why this may be a great idea for your workplace!
Are you attempting to run a workplace wellness program but failing to see much interest or engagement? Wellness challenges may be the answer! Employees will find that the challenges offered are easy to participate in, provide rewards and incentives and provide a host of benefits such as creating new relationships at work, reaching health goals, gaining more energy, and becoming more informed on a wide range of topics. Having a program that is easy and fun will boost employee morale tenfold.
Wellness challenges can be creative and constantly changing. Some may last a week, others a month or more and each can be different in order to cater to different personality types. No matter what his or her specific goals or motivations may be, each employee will be sure to find something that sparks their interest, keeps them going in the challenge, and allows them to have a great time doing it with their co-workers!

Corporate wellness programs have a proven track record of Return on Investment (ROI). The pitfall of many programs is that they are still one-dimensional, not personalized, and passive with minimal participation. The Wellworks For You Program commits to a strong focus on your employees by promoting organizational integration and strong communication. We believe the key to a successful program is engagement! Our proprietary platforms, systems, and incentive management tools deliver the highest employee participation with a measurable return on investment.
A program’s level of economic return depends on the program model and use of the strategies that define “best practices.” Wellworks For You provides the foundation to administer a health promotion program at a premier level with ease. Its systems have advanced methods of collecting and tracking data to provide a comprehensive dataset for the metrics that are essential in estimating ROI.
