Posted on Saturday February 25 2017

A little over a year ago, I spoke with Stuart from Liberty Mutual out of Charlotte, NC.Stuart asked me how he could increase his chances of getting selected for corporate health fairs in his service area.

Four Seasons - Four Health Fairs

Posted on Wednesday February 8 2017

For some of you HR and benefits professionals, you might be pretty seasoned when it comes to employee health fairs (like that play on words? lol), and it might be time to shake things up. Or better yet, time to break things up.Ever thought of taking your annual health fair and breaking it up into four seasonal health fairs?It's a great way to focus and hone in on specific topics and goals you want to accomplish. As of now, you're most likely trying to knock all your initiatives out in one big event, or you do not have room for a big health fair, so you sacrifice certain goals, simply due to...

People Love Prizes And Your Health Fair Should Have Them

Posted on Tuesday January 31 2017

One of the benefits of hosting an employee health fair is the employee raffle; everyone loves gifts.Not to mention, your health fair vendors will bring the prizes for you (even your carriers).That's right - your vendors will bring the prizes. The more vendors you invite, the bigger your raffle will be.By the time setup is complete, your head/registration table will be looking like this:I have seen a lot of awesome items raffled off -  concert tickets, electronic toothbrushes, VISA gift cards, football/basketball tickets, FitBits, earbuds, iPads, etc..And as you can see in the picture, all t...

Picking The Right Time Frame For Your Health Fair

Posted on Monday January 30 2017

HR and benefits professionals - this post is to help you when determining the time duration of your employee health fair.You don't want a health fair that is too short - where you have employees showing up as vendors are leaving. And you don't want a health fair that's too long - where vendors are standing around twiddling their thumbs or packing up and leaving early. Neither one of these outcomes is ideal.Most of the health fairs I have attended are too long, and by the end of the event, they end up looking like this:The main thing to keep in mind when deciding a health fair duration is th...

Two Health Fairs a Year Better Than One?

Posted on Thursday January 26 2017

Some of you might be thinking there is no reason to have two health fairs in the same year.And for some of you, that might be correct - but that all depends on what you want to accomplish with your events.Below are a few reasons/examples as to why it might be more beneficial to have two health fairs a year at your office/worksite location:One For Benefits, One For WellnessYou might want to consider having a health/wellness fair (chiro, dentist, vision, and other vendors alike) and then having a benefits fair (your insurance carriers, EAP's, (401)k and vendors alike).This is going to give yo...

Jill Ferris is the Wellness & Training Specialist at RPG Solutions (a division of HUB International) in Raleigh NC.
