Digital Signs Promote Health and Wellness

Still looking for ways to creatively grab the attention of your staff with healthy reminders and wellness messages? Rather than continuing to exhaust the same advertising medium using print ads, expand your options with digital signage. Digital signage is a type of electronic display that is used to build awareness, conveniently selling your wellness message. Digital signage works so well because it strikes the perfect balance between subtle and “in your face.” Kaiser Permanente’s Corporate Health Promotion group offers digital signage custom to your Wellness theme. We offer a library of slides covering healthy eating, exercise, prevention, and more.

In the corporate environment, digital signage can easily be displayed on computer monitors, employee websites, hallway monitors, café monitors, or TV screens. As an advertising medium, digital signage can help expand your opportunities to promote wellness, effectively attract attention, and reduce print costs while supporting your efforts to “Go Green.” Contact us to learn more about receiving digital signage custom to your Wellness theme.

Top Corporate Health Promotion Services for 2012

Image: Making a ListLast year, Kaiser Permanente’s Corporate Health Promotion team brought Wellness services on-site to over 400 business locations in California and other states. In the spirit of prevention, we reviewed our top service requests from 2012 to answer the question, “What is trending in Corporate Health Promotion?” Here is a list of our most requested Health Promotion Services ranked by there popularity.

1.       Wellness Screenings – Each year our team travels throughout California and surrounding states to perform mobile health screens, which can include a lifestyle assessment, same-day screening results for cholesterol and blood sugar, blood pressure measurement, and an on-line or mailed personal wellness profile report. Many companies are now pairing annual wellness screenings with a progressive incentive structure to boost employee participation in a successful program that leads to effective health improvements.

2.       Classes and Workshops – A Hot topic for 2012 was Stress Management, a topic covered in classes like “Practical Skills for Stress Management” and “Learning to Let Go.” Other popular topics included Healthy Eating and Nutrition and Tobacco / Nicotine Cessation. Important health and prevention topics are often customized to meet the needs of time-limited work groups. Some work sites prefer to piggyback a class with regular staff meetings, or to offer a class via webinar. Health sound bites can also be provided via teleconference “call-ins.”

3.       Health Coaching and Consultations – This category of service also ranked in the top. Health coaching participants receive one-on-one coaching to help them better identify and outline steps toward improved health. This interaction can occur in person or via telephone. Top consultative services included “Ask the expert,” a highly regarded service that brings a health expert of your choice to the Worksite for some Q&A or special topic conversation. Popular physical activity and exercise consultations included onsite personal training, health-fitness appraisals, and health zone consultations. Our Health zone consultations helped many worksites improve café offerings, nutrition label food items, and find creative ways to fit in fitness at work. We helped businesses create “walkable” worksites using our “simple to launch” Walk-path Toolkit. We also advised on alternative workspaces like the new treadmill desks and standing workstations.

Workplace Flu Prevention Clinics

Image of a friendly office gathering, Kaiser PermanenteThere are many sensible reasons for getting a flu shot. Every year the flu vaccine helps save lives, while decreasing time and money lost from being out of work sick. The flu vaccine also helps break the chain of transmission and minimizes the spread of flu to your co-workers or family.

The flu season regularly peaks in January or February, and while early immunization is the most effective, it’s never too late to get a flu vaccine. Kaiser Permanente’s Corporate Health Promotion Team understands the power of prevention.  Our mobile on-site flu clinics continue to arm work-sites in the greater Sacramento area. This year alone, our team administered close to 3,000 immunizations at more than 40 work-sites from September to November.

Corporate Health Promotion is proud to provide easy to schedule, on-site flu clinics and health promotion services. Let us help you exercise the power of prevention. See our service listing or contact us for more on how we can help your team Thrive.
