Health Promotion Resources in a Flash — Health Enhancement Systems Launches New Website
Good news for health promotion managers looking to motivate employees to better fitness and well-being: Health Enhancement Systems, specializing in organizational wellness campaigns, has upgraded their website to make your job easier.
HealthEnhancementSystems.com features a new blog, filled with employee wellness information and tips, plus the biweekly email newsletter, Wellness Solutions. The website also offers access to MapWalk.com. This tool for creating and sharing walking routes is offered with a free wellness coordinator toolkit (MapWalk.com/
Health Enhancement Systems is known for providing clear, concise employee wellness information in their white paper series, including the latest — A Healthy Dose of Nature Is Good for Business: Promoting Green Exercise for Employee Well-Being. Other health promotion topics include a culture of happiness, social support, achieving peak energy, reducing stress, employer-sponsored weight management, family health, and several others. The entire list can be accessed from the new site’s main page or directly at http://whitepapers.hesonline.com.
The product pages have been streamlined and enhanced by adding 2-minute video previews for many of the company’s online campaigns (most programs are also available in print versions). "The videos are great for seeing our online products in action and for checking out our new campaigns," Witherspoon explains. "They give busy wellness managers a quick way to compare our many different offerings.” Wellness coordinators can schedule a 30-minute, no-obligation demo with Health Enhancement Systems by calling 800.326.2317 (989.839.0852)
In a typical program, participants explore virtual trails online while recording actual exercise in the real world. For example, after walking 30 minutes, a participant in New Jersey can be transported to a virtual trail in Hawaii — learning about beautiful places, interesting people, and local customs as they log activity and see their progress. "Some participants report taking their next vacation in a location they learned about from one of our products,” adds Witherspoon.
In addition to breathtaking images of locations around the world, Health Enhancement Systems also builds in teams, communication features, and other social motivation factors to increase participation and completion rates. Wellness coordinator guides and online tracking features help round out the programs, offering easy and effective ways to increase population health. “If your previous wellness program was just a paper log sheet, you're in for a treat,” says Witherspoon. The new website, complete with a wealth of health promotion information and products, is at http://HealthEnhancementSystems.com.
