What We Do
- Create custom strategies
- Execute the deliverables
- Advise on best practice and recommendations for optimization and improvement
The keys to building a healthy culture are what we like to call the Three C’s: Communicate, Communicate and Communicate. It’s making every employee aware of your program, getting employees excited and talking about it, and encouraging feedback to constantly improve and make sure everyone is getting what they need.
This is a space where StayWell truly excels. Our communication and engagement practices are deeply rooted in the science of behavior change. The goal, as always, is to educate employees about your health and wellness program, clearly communicate its benefits, and motivate them to take action. The more employees that participate and stay engaged in your program, the more you improve your company’s net health and bring down your healthcare costs.
We understand each workforce is different, so we leverage a custom omni-channel approach to greater encourage participation. We can help build awareness of your program and provide the kind of printed, digital and video content that demonstrates what an essential benefit you’re providing for your employees and how it can have such a pronounced effect on their lives. These programs are fully client-customized to your brand based on a unique strategy designed by an expert communication strategist team from StayWell.

By Luke Anderson, marketing manager at StayWell One of the most nerve-racking times in my life was when my wife and I were leaving the hospital after having our first child. The hospital staff had been so helpful during our stay that the thought of going home on our own was overwhelming. I spent the walk to our car rattling off endless new fatherhood questions: What if he doesn’t stop crying? Are we feeding him too much? How long should we let him sleep? What does that new noise mean?

We live in the Information Age, the Age of Technology, and the Age of Personalization. That's why we leverage personalized technology and information to help employees achieve their health and wellness goals and measure their success in real time.
The workplace culture of your company is arguably the most important thing your company has going for it. We’re here to help you make sure your culture is a healthy one.
Better health and well-being should be enough reward. But sometimes employees need added incentive to get moving down that path. We're your experts when it comes to when, how, where to dangle the carrot.
Some employers keep their employees on a need-to-know basis. When it comes to health and well-being, everyone needs to know. Then you can get them engaged and keep them motivated.
Wellness is a way of life. It can also be a great way to work. And the best way to bring wellness to any workforce is to be right there on-site, on the job every day.
How do you get to the goal line? One step at a time. Every step of the way, our coaches are right there with your employees to help them stay motivated and on track to achieve their goals.
We are a "people first" organization, but we have to be honest. We love the numbers. There's no such thing as too much data, especially when that data has the power to drive action and help people achieve their wellness goals.
