At MeYou Health, we know wellness encompasses more than just diet and exercise. Being healthy, in all senses of the word, means taking the time to assess and improve emotional and mental health, too. While our employee wellness platform has always spanned every area of well-being, our brand-new Daily Challenge programs (also known as "tracks") give members specific, proven strategies for dealing with stress, depression, alcohol abuse, and tobacco addiction.
Employee wellness is on the rise, and so is our dependence on technology in everyday life. If you want your company’s wellness program to create real, lasting health behavior change for employees, try making it digital. That includes making it available online or via mobile app, encouraging social connection, tracking program data, and more.
Here are five reasons why employees will benefit from a digital wellness program.
