The demand for worksite wellness consultants is growing every year as more companies are beginning to recognize the benefits of providing a healthier and happier workplace. If you're interested in entering the field of workplace wellness, it's critical that you first become familiar with the job expectations of a worksite wellness consultant. Tulane SoPA offers a Master's Degree, Bachelor's Degree, and Graduate Certificate in Health & Wellness that can help you start your career as a worksite wellness consultant.

Typical Duties of a Worksite Wellness Consultant

As a worksite wellness consultant, you can expect to spend your workdays promoting workplace health and wellness to employees at various job sites. You are there to help teach, answer questions, and assist with finding alternative solutions to any work-related issues. Overall, your goal is to keep employees healthy and happy in their workplace environment.

As a worksite wellness consultant, your primary work duties will include:

  • Providing worksite health promotion programs
  • Developing on-site facilities/programs to promote health
  • Providing worksite health education
  • Discussing health-related benefits with company stakeholders
  • Attending seminars and conferences

Providing Worksite Health Promotion Programs

As a successful worksite wellness consultant, you will develop and implement programs that promote healthy behaviors. In addition, you can expect to discover ways to collect data for company measurements of the outcomes of these programs, such as how many employees brush their teeth twice a day or participate in biometric screenings.

Developing On-site Facilities/Programs to Promote Health

Much of the success or failure of a program can depend on how accessible it is to everyone. To promote health resources, you will develop programs to help keep employees healthy, happy, and productive, whether that includes implementing exercise facilities, stress-reducing classes, or other similar services.

Providing Worksite Health Education

A critical aspect of a successful wellness program includes adequate education. When an individual learns the risks and benefits associated with certain health topics, they can make more informed choices and develop healthier practices.

As a worksite wellness consultant, you might work with human resources to create informational pamphlets on different health topics and attend various talks hosted by local organizations to share what you've learned. Sometimes, you may even lead discussions on health topics such as losing weight or improving cholesterol levels.

Discussing Health-related Benefits With Company Stakeholders

Meeting with company managers and HR professionals to discuss the health-related benefits available to employees is a task that you can expect to take on regularly. Additionally, these discussions should cover other wellness initiatives available to employees, such as exercise facilities and healthy food options.

Attending Seminars and Conferences

To keep abreast of the latest information about wellness initiatives for corporations, you may speak at conferences, attend seminars, and visit similar organizations to observe their worksite health tactics.
