Module One: Getting Started

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Access Health and Wellness Program Needs
  • Plan a Health and Wellness Program
  • Implement a Health and Wellness Program
  • Maintain a Health and Wellness Program 

Module Two: Definition of a Health and Wellness Program

In this module, we will discuss the meaning of a health and wellness program and the first steps in creating one. You will learn about the basics of a health and wellness program and how it could help you and your organization.

What is Health and Wellness Program?

These are health and well programs implemented by an organization to enhance physical and/or mental health.

Productivity

In here, we discuss the importance of a health and wellness program in improving productivity in the workplace.

Cost of Health Care

We look at the cost of health care and how a health and wellness program can help companies lower their insurance premiums.

Cost of Absenteeism

Absenteeism refers to an employee who is constantly missing to work due to a justifiable or unjustifiable reason. Some of the costs include lower productivity and lost opportunities for the company. 

Module Three: Types of Health and Wellness Programs

It is estimated that employees spend one-third of their day at work. That's for an 8-hour workday without travel time included. This is why a company instituted health and wellness program is essential for uplifting the quality of life and wellness of its employees.

Health Behaviors

Health behaviors are actions of an individual or group of people that is aimed at preserving their health or avoid injury or illness.

Health Screening and Maintenance

These procedures are an integral part of any health and wellness program. Health screenings and tests are conducted to detect diseases or conditions before the onset of symptoms.

Mental Health

Mental health does not get the same limelight as physical health. But this is a serious issue. The CDC estimates that only 17 percent of U.S. adults are in a state of optimal mental health.

Physical Injuries

Health and wellness programs can reduce the number of injuries in and out of the workplace. Physical injuries, whether suffered on or off the job, translates to lost productivity. There are several types of safety programs that can be implemented depending on the type of work environment.

Module Four: Health Behavior Programs

In this module, we will focus on the different health behavior programs that aim to improve the routine behaviors of individuals to increase their health and wellbeing.

Increasing Physical Activity

Physical activities bring many physical and mental health benefits. Promoting an active lifestyle helps create healthier, happier employees, and this, in turn, brings you happier customers.

Nutrition and Weight Loss

Obesity continues to be a major health concern, with an estimated $147 billion in medical costs in 2008. A weight loss program helps the company save money and helps the employee live longer.

Tobacco Cessation

Tobacco-related illnesses are one of the major causes of death each year. Tobacco cessation programs aim to curb the use of tobacco dependence among employees. Continued tobacco use can lead to these diseases:

  • Stroke
  • Heart Disease
  • Increased Blood Pressure
  • COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • Cancer
  • Pregnancy and Birth Risks

Substance Abuse Treatment

Substance abuse can be caused by several factors, which can be emotional, mental, or physical. There are three major types of substance abuse; Alcohol, Illegal Drugs, and Prescription drugs. Drugs are highly addictive and can cause a plethora of mental and physical health effects. Substance abuse can also have a damaging effect on your company; these include:

  • Increases the cost of health care
  • Reduces productivity
  • Increases absenteeism
  • Reduces morale
  • Inflates the risk of on the job accidents
  • Increases employee turnover

Module Five: Health Screenings and Maintenance Programs

Health screening and maintenance programs can go a long way in preventing illnesses and prevent conditions from worsening with early detection. In this part of the Health and Wellness at Work Online Certificate course, you will learn about the different health screening and maintenance programs to help reduce health care claim costs to the company.

Preventive Care Screenings

Many people die simply because their illness was not detected earlier. Early detection prevents illnesses from worsening. A health screening test helps patients identify possible conditions even before the first symptoms of the disease present themselves. Some of these preventive care screenings include:

  • General Health Risk Assessment
  • Dental Health Assessment
  • Diabetes
  • Glucose Testing
  • Hearing Testing
  • Blood pressure

Cancer Screenings

When it comes to cancer, early detection gives you the best prognosis. It can also save you from more expensive treatments for more advanced cancer stages. Some cancer screening tests include:

  • Breast cancer / Mobile Mammography
  • Skin cancer
  • Prostate cancer screenings

Annual Examinations

Physical exams allow doctors to create a baseline of your health information. Annual or regular examinations makes it possible to detect any changes in your physical health. It can help prevent illnesses from progressing into something serious.

Maintenance Programs

This is a type of health program that aims to prevent or treat common illnesses. Keeping your employees does not only help you save on health care costs but also increase productivity in the workplace. A healthy employee can work more efficiently and is a good way of boosting company image. 

Module Six: Mental Health Programs

Mental health issues should take equal importance as their physical health counterparts. In this module, we discuss the different mental health programs available to address the common mental disorders in the workplace today.

Stress Management

Stress is a regular occurrence in and outside the workplace. The problem is when stress becomes too much that it affects employee relationships and your ability to work. Stress does not only affect you mentally. It can also harm your physical health. In this module, we discuss some of the ways we can reduce stress:

  • Have a meditation break
  • Play relaxing music
  • Offer financial counseling

Support Groups

Support groups bring people suffering from the same situation as a place where they can share their experiences. This is also a place where they can heal and grow with the help of other people. Support groups can be created for people suffering from a loss, a medical condition such as cancer, or those with relationship problems.

Counseling

A counselor or therapist is a licensed professional who specializes in providing one-on-one counseling. Providing the services of a licensed counselor can be possible in an organization with many employees.

Awareness and Education

People were afraid of going to a counselor in the past because they were afraid of being labeled as “crazy.” The fact is that mental illness is a serious medical condition. Awareness and education can help bring down this negative stigma. With education, people become more sensitive to mental health issues and more open to treatment. 

Module Seven: Evaluate the Need

After being introduced to health and wellness concepts, this module aims to build on that knowledge and give you some essential items to include in your to-do list.

Review Current and Previous Programs

For organizations with current or previous wellness programs, evaluating what works and does not work is a great step towards improving the program.

Environmental Factors

Environmental factors mean the surrounding your employees work in. This can include workplace hazards such as a hole in the floor or a light bulb being out. It is simply difficult for you to know all these factors. The best solution is to include input from all people working in the organization.

Identify Common Health Conditions and Procedures

Some illnesses are generic, other environmental, and some age-related. Having a working knowledge of the common medical conditions can help you identify what types of wellness programs you should offer.

Review Company Information Pertaining to Employee Health

Another important area that needs reviewing is the company employee health information. This to look out for includes what are the common causes of absenteeism and how frequent this occurs.

Module Eight: Planning Process

At this point of the course, you should have a deeper understanding of the different types of health and wellness programs. Now it's time to create the program. A well-planned program can be the determining factor between success and failure.

Form a Health and Wellness Team or Committee

When creating an organization-wide program, you must get the input from all employees who will give the beneficiaries of the program.

Define Goals

After creating the committee, the next step is to determine the objectives of the wellness program. However, these goals must be realistic to encourage full participation.

Budget

Even with the best intentions, wellness programs are limited by an organization’s resources. Take into consideration how much is realistically possible. Some of the items you should consider include:

  • Materials costs
  • Incentive costs
  • Outsourced costs
  • Advertising costs
  • Employee time costs

Programs and Policies

In this part, we take a look into which goals are going to be policy and which are going to be programmed.

Module Nine: Implementation

After all the hard work of researching and creating the health and wellness program, this module discusses how to implement the program.

Get Management Support

Management support is critical to the success of the program. Employees are quick to follow once they see their leaders are on board. Some managers may require encouragement. This can be done by explaining the benefits of the program to the overall success of the organization.

Test it Out

Stat with a small group of employees and check the program’s effectiveness. This strategy makes it easier for you to evaluate and make changes if necessary.

Get the Word Out

Make sure that the information gets out to the whole organization. The health and wellness program was not only created for select employees, but it something that should be implemented throughout the organization.

Incentives

Offering incentives is a great strategy for encouraging people to participate in the program. Aside from advertising the different health benefits, incentives serve to add more value and make it more attractive to everybody.

Module Ten: Create a “Culture of Wellness”

In this module, we discuss how to create a “Culture of Wellness.” How a collective set of values that is geared towards health can be beneficial to the long term success of your health and wellness program.

Accessible Healthy Eating Options

Getting access to food has never been easier in a world of fast-food restaurants and vending machines. But this has a cost, and the price is often your health. Making access to healthy foods should also be a top priority for a well-rounded program.

Give them a Break

Many of today’s jobs require people to sit behind desks for long hours. Giving your employees a break from this monotonous routine can help them stretch those muscles. A sedentary lifestyle is also a leading cause of heart disease. Offering people a vacation also helps reduce absenteeism.

Alcohol, Drug, and Smoke-Free Work Environment

Keeping alcohol, drugs, and tobacco products out of the workplace is critical in the success of a health and wellness program. Including it in your company’s policy stresses the point that you are serious is keeping your employees healthy.

Eliminate Hazards

These are all the elements that could possibly harm employees both mentally and physically. Some of these include:

  • Physical
  • Ergonomic
  • Safety
  • Chemical and Dust
  • Biological
  • Psychological

Module Eleven: Evaluate Results

This course has been informative and helped me successfully plan three weddings.

I found the course a matter of common sense in some part but there are some great ideas and some really fantastic advice to follow. The course allows you do complete it in your spare time and you can keep revisiting modules if you feel you do not relate to or understand any aspects of it.

A good course, however, some of the questions were faulty.

This program was very enlightening. This is a good base upon which one can begin to build a health and wellness program.
