Healthy Culture Action Trackers are online tools that track and reward efforts to create health-supporting cultures within workgroups. They guide employees’ and leaders’ efforts to align values, norms, policies, and practices with wellness. Action trackers mobilize natural peer, household, and community support for healthy lifestyles. Each action tracker is optimized for smart phones, tablets and computers. Participants record their actions, and then see a progress report on their actions to date and how their efforts compare with their peers. Depending on the number of actions they achieve, participants receive bronze, silver and gold awards. Aggregate data and reports make it possible to track actions at the organizational level. It is also possible to generate descriptions and photos associated with best practices for each action. Learn more...
|The Worksite Wellness StrengthsBuilder features 81 possible actions that an organization can take to foster an environment that supports wellness.
