When it comes to a corporate weight loss challenge, or any type of successful weight lose endeavor, the process of tracking measurable results is essential to motivate and show how hard an individual has worked to get to their fitness goals. Many tools exist to help provide vital metrics to help measure how successful a campaign is. Building measurable outcomes into your employee weight loss program not only help employees track health goals, but also helps you measure reductions in health care costs and increases in productivity.
Tools such as incentaHEALTH’s HEALTHspot® kiosk help determine how someone is doing within a weight loss program, in a private and accurate way. The HEALTHspot kiosk confidentially collects and transmits BMI data to the secure IncentaHEALTH data center. Participating employees have access to a private, online progress report that shows each of their weigh ins over time. This visual progress report chronicles the employees journey with side-by-side photos and weight readings from each screening. Successful participants can then be rewarded with a variety of incentives to reward them for their accomplishments. Both the employee and employer benefit from these measurable improvements in health.
Not only does the HEALTHspot kiosk help each individual track their personal results, but it also allows the employer to see aggregate de-identified data about the overall impact of the program. When an entire team takes an initiative to get healthy, great things occur. From lower absenteeism, to lower health care costs, an employer weight loss challenge is an excellent way to combat the obesity epidemic. incentaHEALTH takes great pride in offering the tools for a healthier and better tomorrow, both inside and outside the workplace.
