“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” centuries ago Chinese philosopher Confucius enlightened us with his words of wisdom. So when we speak about pursuing a career, the primary construct we should be looking at is employee engagement, as no jobs are picture-perfect. Employee engagement has achieved prominence in the minds of today’s business leaders and workers alike, leading many organizations to review and adjust their approaches to modern human resource management.
Fortunately, advancements in HR technology have made it easier to engage with employees. Such advances also allow companies to boost employee morale and well-being through the use of innovative practices and strategies to cater to employees with different personalities.

WellRight had previously worked with RA Nelson, a Colorado-based full-service general contractor with offices in Vail and Aspen. RA Nelson wanted to implement a corporate wellness program that would make it easier to track activities, wouldn’t impede on personal information, and would create a formal reward process. Currently, RA Nelson benefits from the implementation of the WellRight platform which provides wellness rewards to their staff, ranging anywhere from paying for a gym membership to chipping in to purchase a wedding dress. Apart from that, the customization and flexibility of the program enabled RA Nelson to create its challenges, such as volunteering to pick up litter or ringing the bell for the Salvation Army during the holidays. This approach to corporate wellness has helped RA Nelson build a better workplace with a culture of caring and winning Healthiest Business in Vail Valley award.
Staying on top of technological trends is a great way to ensure active engagement that accommodates the well-being of employees. As technology continues to advance, both employees and employers will realize that physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy employees can add more value to the organization, thus making the business case for workplace wellness even stronger than it is today.
