Posted on Thursday December 22 2016

HR and benefits professionals - If you're going to take the time to plan a health/wellness fair, the last thing you want is for none of your employees show up!It's a helpless feeling that leaves you scratching your head and wondering why/how the heck did this happen.

Warning Signs Your Health Fair Is Too Long

Posted on Monday December 19 2016

And How to Prevent Future Health Fairs From SufferingLet me start by saying, this might not apply to some of you HR and benefits pros, as you might have a great, two-hour health/wellness fair that's highly attended and vendors knock down your door year after year to be a part of your event.However, not everyone has that same experience.But on the bright side, it might a simple problem you can easily fix.All you might need to do to have a successful health/wellness fair is decrease the duration of your event.Don't end up with your health/wellness fair looking like this...Now, I know what som...

Wellness Workshops Alongside the Health Fair

Posted on Saturday November 12 2016

Wellness workshops are normally held on a different day than the health fair, although we have seen some organizations use wellness workshops to their advantage on the day of their health fair. Some organizations take advantage of the time they’re allowed for the health fair and schedule workshops throughout the health fair, especially if the health fair is 3-4 hours around the lunch hour and the employees are demanding an activity. We’ve seen cooking, financial, fitness (i.e. yoga), and other workshops in rooms nearby the health fair.

Open Enrollment Time??? Knock it Out at Your Health Fair

Posted on Saturday November 12 2016

We have been in the business of planning health fairs for quite some time now (I personally have planned and attended hundreds and hundreds of employee health fairs).From experience, I have come to realize that the main time of year HR managers plan their health fair is during or close to open enrollment time.The months of September, October, and November are ALWAYS slammed with health fairs. In October of 2016, HFC had 65+ health fairs listed on our platform (and we expect that number to be 3x in October of 2017). That's just October...Here's a great post from Zane benefits breaking down O...

Feed Your Peeps: Food Ideas For Your Employee Health Fair

Posted on Saturday November 12 2016

It's no secret; providing food at your health fair is one of the best ways to ensure your employees attend. Not to mention, your employees will highly appreciate it and are going to love you for it!You can use food as a way to bring out those stubborn employees to the health fair. By coming for free food, it's a high chance they are going to visit with vendors and even get flu shots or screenings.All companies are different, and some have a harder time getting employee participation in health-related events - food is a way to change that.So without further ado, let's look at some food ideas...

The Top Health Fair Vendor Ideas

Posted on Saturday November 12 2016

Selecting quality and interactive vendors for your employee health fair is probably the most important aspect of the health fair planning process. You can't have a health fair without vendors, and you can't get your employees to attend their health fair if you have a bunch of vendors that do not spark their interest/curiosity.It sounds silly, but HR and benefits professionals can get too comfortable and invite the same vendors year after year. This reduces the excitement of your employees, and it also diminishes the benefit of hosting the health fair in the first place.This post has differe...

Scavenger Hunt

Posted on Saturday November 12 2016

HR managers and benefits professionals - don’t have space for a health fair, OR at least don’t think you have enough space for a health fair? Think again - you could use hall ways, private offices, the lunch room, conference rooms, etc. - and end up having an onsite employee health fair at the location you thought was impossible to have a health fair. You can use this to your advantage by having a scavenger hunt at your office.Say you do have enough space for a health fair (like a gym, theater, giant conference room) - either way, you could pick spots where you can spread your health fair v...

Health Fair Attractions - How to get your employees out to your health fair

Posted on Saturday November 12 2016

Each employer group has their own, unique organizational and employee culture.Meaning, attaining a high (or above average) employee attendance rate at your company health/wellness fair can be easier to accomplish for some, while others have more difficulty.This is what I can promise you:Bringing out the right attraction to your health/wellness fair will increase employees turnout.I have no doubts.Now, don't confuse onsite screenings and flu shots at your health/wellness fair as an attraction.The attraction is what you're going to use to increase the participation for those screenings, flu s...
