The importance of investing and adopting a corporate well-being program has become clear in recent years. In years past, before our world was permanently traversed by the COVID-19 pandemic, work-life emphasis centered around bottom-line business outcomes. Today, priorities have found themselves in a new hierarchical order.
C-Suite executives almost universally agree that wholistic employee well-being is the heartbeat of a successful company. Now, as those executives and buyers become more familiar with the landscape, they’re focusing keenly on a unique and special attribute of those corporate well-being programs: flexibility.
Take the following situation for example: With Limeade, data-driven insights afforded through the solution allow organizations to continually tune their well-being focus to the unique needs of their employees. If you’re seeing an increased desire for mental health support among employees for instance, you can deliver to those needs by working with a Limeade strategic account executive to figure out how to support employees in these areas with tools, resources, and functionality. This benefit has far-reaching impacts, often leading to forms of cost avoidances down the road.
“One of the things that we enjoy about Limeade is their strong personalization and the fact that they have machine learning and AI built into the platform to provide an experience that is more like a streaming service in terms of curating personalized content. Previous platforms and wellness efforts cast a wide net and tried to catch as many [participants] as possible versus really individualizing an approach to help people be at their best.”

Employee data and flexible technology
A key for successfully implementing flexible technology is to leverage employee data. The commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Limeade in 2022, describes how a wellness manager from a professional services organization utilizes employee data to identify regional offices that would get the most out of amenities such as fitness centers. Making informed decisions about where to build certain amenities avoids costs associated with building and maintaining facilities in areas where they would go unused.
These are real, impactful and flexible decisions that Limeade enables. Well-being at work includes all the interactions and behaviors that employees engage in throughout their workday — and to make meaningful decisions from those small and big behaviors, a personalized well-being experience cannot be overlooked.
