1. Calendars are a great incentive
Calendars are one of the most long-lasting promotional products available, increasing brand visibility every time someone looks at the calendar. This makes them a very cost-effective way to promote your brand or logo!
Despite the fact that people have more ways to plan and manage their time these days, many still like to use paper planners and calendars. These tools can help clear their thoughts, clarify priorities and reframe goals in a way digital planners can’t.
Calendars are also useful in promoting health-related activities and goals. They can be used for tracking life-saving medications, exercise goals and health information. They can be bundled with other communications such as the first health newsletter of the year, open enrollment packets and flyers for upcoming events.
2. They’re a great way to track health information
Keeping track of important health information is one of the best ways to keep your wellness program on-track. A wellness calendar is an excellent way to communicate these important dates and initiatives to employees throughout the year, as well as how they can participate in the program.
Another great idea is to bundle a wellness calendar with other communications, like your first health newsletter or open enrollment packets. You can also include a healthy perk, such as a list of healthy local take-out options or a map of walking routes on the workplace campus.
Using National Health Observances to engage your employees is an effective way to build in healthy habits. For example, Gratitude Month in November can be a great time to promote healthy practices that are related to your company culture and values.
3. They’re a great way to give away prizes
A wellness calendar is a great way to reward employees who take the initiative to improve their health by getting a flu shot, scheduling a health risk assessment or participating in your company’s annual health fair. Depending on the design and content of your calendar, it can also be a great way to promote your company culture in the name of good health. You can also use it as a tool to track key statistics like blood pressure and cholesterol or even set up a small health jargon maze to see if your employees can come up with the top prize on their own.
The best way to decide on the right calendar is to consider what your organization’s health-related goals are and pick a product that can accommodate those objectives.
4. They’re a great way to build in company events
Using calendars as an effective way to build in company events is a great way to encourage employees to make their health and well-being a priority. It’s also a great way to promote National Health Observances and embed DEI into your workplace culture, and it gives your organization transparency around important health initiatives.
You can also customize the colors of your calendars and add charms, which are little icons that appear in the title of an event. These are usually useful for smaller, more specific events like meetings or trips.
5. They’re a great way to celebrate National Health Observances
Health observances are days that focus on important topics like health, fitness, or wellness. These events are a great way to educate the public about the issues that affect them.
They’re also a fun way to socialize and get employees engaged in a program that matters to them. These days will help your employees become more aware and improve their health habits.
There are many national health observances to choose from, so you can find one that’s perfect for your company. Some examples include World Water Day, National Wear Red Day, and Patient Recognition Week.
