3 ways to boost well-being program effectiveness that don’t add to your workload
By: Taylor Blessing
Typically, well-being programs require a lot of work from the program administrator to see the value they were promised. Most SaaS vendors have good intentions but are so cumbersome to manage they end up adding more administrative burden than value.
HR leaders managing any program need to overcome a host of technical, organizational and user experience challenges while proving the impact of the program to multiple stakeholders. This can leave them stressed and at a higher risk of burnout – which can have a ripple effect on the entire employee population they support.
With the right partner, you can boost the effectiveness of your well-being program
So, what’s the solution? HR leaders need a partner who simplifies the process by supporting the administrator with flexible technology and personal support along with delivering a great user experience.
Forrester also found that prior to Limeade, customers launched around eight well-being campaigns. With Limeade, that number grew to 50 in the first year and 100 by year 3 — all without adding additional headcount.
With Limeade, HR teams don’t need to spend time casting a wide net of campaigns driven by costly incentives to get their employees to use the program. Instead, they can execute targeted, impactful campaigns that provide a refreshing way to infuse well-being into work – making it easy to show the program’s success to stakeholders without increased stress and additional workload.
3 ways to deliver an effective well-being experience without overwhelming your program administrators
Here are the top three ways Limeade can help deliver an effective well-being experience without overwhelming and burning-out your program administrators.
1. Unify your systems with flexible technology
Limeade well-being programs are designed to be the entry point for employees to your organization’s information, resources and culture. Integrating with your programs, intranet(s), third party vendors and more so program administrators can seamlessly surface relevant benefits and resources to employees in one effective, seamless experience. Limeade empowers administrators to manage a program that delivers what employee’s need, without adding administrative burden.
2. Targeted communication
Program administrators can target their communications by employee title, benefit status, office location and more to cut through the noise of traditional email and deliver a truly personalized experience. Customers boost participation in medical and additional resources they can seamlessly integrate into the program, saving program administrators an estimated 30 hours. Flexible technology and a streamlined experience allow them to do more with less.
With Limeade, organizations experience layered support — flexible technology for leadership to use as an extension of their culture and a streamlined experience for administrators to maximize the reach and effectiveness of their well-being program.
3. Consumer-grade experience
Limeade modernizes the way well-being programs are designed so program administrators can deliver value to employees quickly. They can easily communicate key well-being activities, campaigns and events in a streamlined process. A senior benefits analyst reported that before Limeade, they could only execute 10 to 15 activities annually. After partnering with Limeade, they were able to deliver at least 240 activities per year while maintaining the same number of full-time employees dedicated to managing the program and while lessening the burden on their champion network.
With Limeade, organizations experience layered support — flexible technology for leadership to use as an extension of their culture and a streamlined experience for administrators to maximize the reach and effectiveness of their well-being program.
