professional to assist in setting challenging, yet realistic goals. Often the “plan” is similar whether to
reduce cholesterol, lose weight or control diabetes. Knowing which choices to make and having a
source to go to when assistance is needed helps to keep on track.
Health & Wellness has many components. We would be pleased to work with you to help educate and encourage your employees toward healthier lifestyle choices. “Motivation is both an art and a science. What strongly motivates one person may not motivate the next person at all. Whenever you are motivating and rewarding groups of people, the goal is to motivate each individual even though the same incentive program is offered to the entire group. The way to do this is to offer the right choice of rewards.”
