Most public employees utilize the Public Employees Benefits Board Program, or PEBB, for holidays, sick days, vacations, and personal leave. Statistics have shown that very few public employees use the program for issues relating to the 8 dimensions of wellness that the 8 for 8 Wellness Challenge address. Additionally, PEBB typically addresses only 2-3 areas of whole person wellness; normally those that pertain to medical and stress reduction issues, and is designed for individual use.

The 8 for 8 Wellness Challenge is designed to encourage teamwork. It incorporates inter-agency and inter-departmental competitions and encourages employee engagement through gamification, employee ownership, and incentives. The Challenge addresses all of the 8 areas of whole person wellness and will work alongside PEBB to enhance the benefits that your employees receive.

Surprisingly, it doesn’t cost as much as you might think when compared to the cost of other weight loss programs and gym memberships. Plus, Healthy Minds Group has the ability to work alongside your company to design a program that that will fit your company’s individual needs. Regardless of your budget, we will work hard to find a solution that will work for you.

Companies that invest in employee wellness programs are reaping big benefits. Research has shown that the average savings for a company that participates in a wellness program is $2.73 for every $1 spent. What’s more, healthy employees tend to stay with their companies for longer periods of time than unhealthy ones. A study done through the National Business Group on Health showed that organizations with highly effective employee wellness programs showed 6% lower attrition than the national average.

The 8 for 8 Wellness Challenge is much more than just another weight loss competition. While physical health is an important component of the program, it is only 1 of the 8 areas of whole person wellness that we address.

Weight loss and physical fitness programs are typically exclusive in nature in that not everyone is willing or able to participate in them. The 8 for 8 Wellness Challenge is designed to be inclusive in nature; regardless of ability level. By addressing 8 areas of whole person wellness instead of just one, the program encourages and supports participation from a wide variety of people.

The 8 for 8 Wellness Challenge encourages employee ownership of the program by allowing each employee to choose which of the 8 areas of wellness they wish to participate in. Because we don’t force employees to participate in challenges that they won’t enjoy, they are more likely to stick with the program for the full 8 weeks.

The 8 for 8 Wellness Challenge is designed to include all employees within your organization; from entry level to executive management. The program offers flexibility because it centers around 8 different areas of wellness and offers something for everyone.

Employees can access the program via phone, tablet, or computer from anywhere there is an internet connection.

The program has been designed around incremental changes; with little to no impact on daily routines. Additionally, most of the activities within the program have been designed to be completed in 20 minutes or less.
