Linking social media and wellness programs to improve employee engagement

PDF Version

Getting in better physical shape, or maintaining good health, can be a lot easier and more fun when you have a supportive group around you. It’s no surprise then that employers see greatest success in their wellness programs when they use social media and effective communication tools with their employees.

That’s just what Sun Life’s Sarah Cook, Manager, Client Communications, Health & Wellness and Erin Dick, Manager, Health & Wellness will discuss at an upcoming Employee Engagement conference. Using social media and other leading-edge engagement strategies to drive performance, productivity and bottom line results will all be explored at the conference.

Linking social media and wellness programs to improve employee engagement

Sun Life’s session will detail the impact that wellness programs have on employee engagement and how they have reenergized programming through the use of social media.

  • How wellness programs can be integrated with the employee engagement strategy.
  • The importance of effective communication and its relation to improved retention, turnover and increased discretionary effort.
  • How social media can be used to create a sense of community, engender excitement and sustain commitment to the wellness program and the organization.
