Global Vice President of Customer Success at Limeade, Steven Parker, joined a group of Limeade customers on stage at Limeade Engage in a panel discussion on best practices for driving employee engagement and well-being. The group covered barriers and opportunities, the value of manager tools, the power of mutual commitment and how their organization is moving the engagement needle.
Here are our top takeaways from the Limeade Engage 2018 customer panel:
On well-being obstacles:
Jason Landry, Senior Director — Shared Services & Total Rewards at Brinker International – At Brinker, we have employees who are on their feet, hourly or work multiple jobs, so getting attention from them is challenging. We try to embed well-being into everything we do — as a way to reach people on their time, when they’re ready, with messaging and program support.
Tina Anistasiow, Director, Health & Productivity at First American – With a largely sedentary workforce employees are at their desk a lot. We have call centers and they can only take very short breaks. We’re trying to get them active and improve communication. We use a multi-channel approach — very honest, open and transparent — to tell employees “why” we’re doing this.
