Wellness Culture & Leadership Recommendations

At USPM, we know that in order for wellness to make an impact on a workplace, it must be integrated within the organization’s culture. That’s why USPM and Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute (CCWI) have partnered to work with employers throughout the country to assess and identify key strategies for an organization to become a well workplace.

USPM and Cleveland Clinic have significant expertise and experience in evaluating and providing employer health and wellness initiatives and together we have created a strategic partnership to provide evidence-based, integrated and holistic population health management solutions.  A key starting point for any client is a culture assessment:

Key objectives of our wellness culture assessment are to:

  • Determine the current state of the wellness and benefit program(s)
  • Analyze the prevalence of chronic conditions and health risk distribution within the population
  • Understand the culture and informal communication structure
  • Assess the readiness of the organization’s staff to adopt a culture of health
  • Identify the positive physical attributes of the organization’s workplace as they relate to wellness
  • Gauge the level of senior leadership and key stakeholder support in becoming a well workplace

Foundation for a Culture of Health

We work with our clients to outline recommendations and strategies aligned with the organization’s core values as well as the research conducted by the Cleveland Clinic and USPM in determining best practices when implementing a comprehensive health and wellness strategy. Our approach centers around three pillars necessary to achieve strong engagement and outcomes that empower employers to shift from a reactive health benefits model that responds to medical concerns once they arise to a model that proactively engages staff, dependents, and retirees to healthier lifestyles.

Our philosophy is simple:

  1. Culture determines what will work
  2. Better health and wellbeing are achieved through individuals engaging in preventive care and behavior change
  3. Environment sustains change
