How to Kick-Start an Employee Wellness Challenge

1208701_10101931161578573_1394992726_n (2)As an active and healthy Denverite, I wanted to bring forth an organized employee wellness effort into our company. Studies show that healthy employees take fewer sick days and work better overall. Starting last month, the Armada Wellness Challenge aimed to encourage healthier lifestyle behaviors among our crew and add some fun activities into our day-to-day work.

The month-long challenge featured a different goal each week:

• Week 1: Rest, Relaxation and Sleep

• Week 2: More Water, Less Caffeine and Sugar

• Week 3: Cook at Home, Pack a Lunch

• Week 4: Get Active

The greatest obstacle was to create weekly goals that were not only attainable by every employee but also fun and engaging to participate in. Weekly emails included helpful resources related to that week’s goal and stand-out employees were recognized as the week’s “Honorable Mention” via a virtual challenger board and on Armada’s social media channels.Dan Wellness Challenge

Every business can benefit from creating a short or long-term wellness challenge — it’s a win-win effort.

Marketing Interventional Radiology to Hospital Physicians

Client: Affiliates in Imaging

Project: Physician-Marketing Campaign to Promote Interventional Radiology Services

Planning/Goals of the Project:

Affiliates in Imaging is a group of more than 20 radiologists in San Francisco and the Bay Area specializing in both diagnostic imaging and interventional radiology (IR). The group contracts with area hospitals and medical centers to provide expert diagnostic imaging interpretation and minimally invasive treatments.

In 2011, the radiology group implemented some positive changes as well as new services to improve its image among hospital partners. Affiliates hired Armada to help communicate these changes to hospital-based physicians in a marketing communications program — the effectiveness of which would be evaluated in an annual survey of these physicians.

In this first year of working together, Armada helped Affiliates increase physicians’ favorable perceptions of its radiology services in all key measured areas, compared with 2010 survey results.
