Onsite wellness services boost morale - and your bottom lineHow to raise money with a timed giving campaignImagine offering a benefit that improved team wellness, reduced healthcare costs and boosted productivity. Onsite clinics provide a variety of health services, including urgent care, wellness exams, education, chronic-illness management and more—all a short stroll from employees’ desks. About 30 percent of larger employers (those with 5,000-plus workers) have onsite clinics. And, about two-thirds of them have plans to expand.

Onsite clinics offer many benefits to employees and employers. Clinics may attract potential employees, and they can help identify companywide occupational health and safety risks. Clinics also help reduce expensive ER visits and provide earlier treatment for illness, all the while supporting increased productivity and reduced absenteeism because employees don’t need to make a special trip to the doctor.

But, benefits from onsite clinics only are enjoyed if team members walk through the door. Here are some tips for successfully launching an onsite clinic:

  • Communicate it: Advertise the clinic and its services. Personal invitations, the company Intranet, brochures and posters are few ways to raise awareness. You can also build buzz about an onsite clinic by handing out First-Aid Pocket Packs imprinted with clinic hours and a phone number, which are perfect for stashing in a workstation.
  • Make it confidential: Assure employees that the clinic adheres to all patient privacy rules, including federal HIPPA regulations. Provide employees an information packet outlining measures taken to protect their privacy.
  • Champion it: Call on top leaders to use and talk about the value of the onsite clinic. A culture of wellness starts with leaders who walk the talk. A custom-printed Convention Kit is a great way to sell your healthy culture and onsite clinic to employees and job seekers alike.
  • Incentivize it: Encourage employees to take advantage of this workplace perk with incentives. Subsidize some healthcare costs for employees who use the clinic. To get them in the clinic for the first time, offer a quality welcome gift, such as an imprinted tea bag mug.
  • Make it remarkable: A convenient location isn’t enough to make an onsite clinic a success. The service and facility also must make employees feel like they’re in good hands. Give away logo’d Tattoo Bandages or Hot/Cold Wrist Rests to help build relationships between patients and clinic staff.
  • Measure it: The return on investment (ROI) for an onsite clinic can be difficult to measure because it serves a diverse collection of patients with different conditions—everything from the common cold to diabetes. Hard ROI could include direct medical cost savings. Soft ROI could include productivity gains and reduced absenteeism. Start measuring the value of an onsite clinic with patient surveys.

The estimated ROI for onsite clinics is $1.50 for every $1 spent, with the return increasing after three years of operation. Onsite clinics are a benefits strategy that supports the health of your team and is healthy for your bottom line.
