Too frequently well-being program engagement plateaus, preventing employees from reaching their full potential. If your program doesn’t generate excitement and results year after year, then it’s time to Move Up with a well-being partner you can rely on.

Effective communication drives well-being program awareness and participation. Unfortunately, many well-being programs still depend on unreliable communications channels like posters, brochures, physical mail and email. 80% of the global workforce is deskless, and most of them do not use computers or a corporate email address for their work. This causes a huge communications gap. Program participation suffers and HR misses opportunities to send urgent messages and update employees with relevant benefits information.
Limeade Well-Being is different. The Limeade ONE mobile app enables you to reach every employee within your organization — no matter where they are. With communications functionality built-in, Limeade Well-Being empowers admins and program champions to easily deliver timely and relevant information to targeted employee groups. This gives you the power to improve the physical, emotional, financial and work well-being of your entire employee population. With Limeade, you can reach the right user at the right time with the right message. Uncover the true power of reaching your entire workforce.
As a comms goal, employee experience was already starting to emerge as a natural successor to employee engagement because it puts people’s needs at the heart of the business. With the shift in employee expectations driven by COVID-19 (90% of companies believe their culture actually improved while working remotely), there can be no going back to the old, top-down comms strategies. Here’s how to get started with employee experience. Workplace from Facebook is a communication tool that connects everyone in your company, even if they’re working remotely. Use familiar features like Groups, Chat, Rooms and Live Video broadcasting to get people talking and working together and boost your employee experience.
