Video tutorial: How to move your wellbeing strategy from good to great
Organisations need to do more to combine their wellness strategies with traditional benefits if they are to get the most out of them and move their wellness strategies from good to great, according to Rebekah Haymes, senior health and benefits consultant at Willis Towers Watson.

"So many think about wellness over here and traditional benefits over here and the two aren't working together," she told delegates at the REBA Employee Wellbeing Congress 2017.
"It's recognising that the two sit hand in hand because your benefits data will give you the data you need to understand what your wellness programme should look like and your benefits data will give you an idea of how successful they have been because you will be able to measure the impact on claim incidents and therefore your benefits cost going forward," she said.
Haymes also highlighted, with recent research carried out by the company, the impact of preventative measures through employer intervention. She said employees were also more comfortable with their employers having a role in helping them to manage their health whereas in the past they have been less receptive to such measures.
This video tutorial was recorded at the REBA Employee Wellbeing Congress 2017 which took place on 22 June.
