Piloting a Successful Wellness Program

by The Sandbox Staff | May 9 2019

Here in The Sandbox, we spend a lot of time talking about getting your wellness program off the ground—because, let’s face it, that’s really when the bulk of the work takes place. But what if your program’s been flying high for a while now? Don’t worry—there are still plenty of resources available on The Sandbox that’ll help you and your team of wellness superheroes keep on soaring!

  • Doing an in-flight check. While your program might be running like a well-oiled machine, checking in with your colleagues from time to time about how they feel it’s working is always a good idea. This evaluation form from the ASEBP Self-Directed Wellness Guide is a great place to start. You can use it after an event or to help evaluate your whole wellness program!
  • Don’t forget where you came from. We’ve probably all heard the saying, “Don’t look back—you aren’t going that way,” but there’s definitely merit in reflecting on just how far your wellness program has come. By taking a look back at where you started—and even examining some of the turbulence along the way—you’ll gain a better understanding and appreciation of where you are now.
  • Announcing your arrival. It’s okay to brag a little—in fact, we encourage it! Whether you’ve just completed your first successful event or your program has been the stuff wellness dreams are made of, we want to hear about it! Head on over to the Learning and Progressing page of the forum and share your success story. By sharing what’s worked for your group, you may inspire another team of workplace wellness superheroes to tackle their next challenge.

So whether you’re gliding into the end of your first year of workplace wellness or have been successfully cruising at altitude for years, The Sandbox is the perfect layover before you take off on your next wellness adventure.
