Within the category of “Leadership Support,” the report drills down into how management can best ensure buy-in to wellness programs within their organization. In addition to demonstrating a personal commitment to wellbeing and mental health, management should ensure effective communications as a priority. The ROWI/WELCOA report states that: “Consistent and strategic communication is the most effective way to convey the array of wellness program amenities across the company”.
