Why do health and well-being improvement programs have such lousy engagement?

The poor health of our nation has created real opportunities for company-sponsored health and well-being improvement programs.  Employers are taking action, buying services from health plans and wellness vendors.  Unfortunately, most employees are only participating to the extent of the incentive plan - they aren't engaging and they aren't achieving health behavior change.

What's the answer ...?

Stronger strategy, more business discipline and better consumer marketing - that's our value proposition.

Engagement has been defined as a top priority issue for the industry, but most providers of health and well-being improvement services don’t address it as if it is.  We do, because that is our main focus.  We use our broad market perspective and meld it with our insight on what stimulates consumer health behavior change.

We don't create health improvement programs, we help them perform better

The Engagement Gap


There's a large Engagement Gap sitting between the many well-intended and well-designed health and well-being improvement programs and the resistant, often indifferent populations to whom they are targeted. 


The program offerings are usually very good, but the efforts to stimulate the "demand side" of the employee market that would be helped by the programs generally fall short and too often fail to produce sufficient health behavior change. 


We provide strategic marketing guidance to efficiently and effectively connect with consumers in meaningful and relevant ways through effective communications and promotion.


We also look at the process flows of the "systems" that serve up and deliver programs.  We identify "leaks" that hinder the natural effectiveness of the systems and design solutions that help generate greater interest and drive better action toward health behavior change.
