Focus Areas

At the core of our programming are Focus Areas where the whole company is engaged in a particular facet of health and wellbeing. These program offerings provide the greatest impact both for increased morale and lifestyle changes. Each focus area has 3-4 weeks of activities and education with a strong emphasis on social engagement and visibility within the organization.



Overview Focus Area Assessment

All of our Focus Areas begin with an inspiring and educational live workshop by one of our amazing wellness
experts who is a specialist in that particular area of wellbeing. Employees are then engaged in education and
activities together related to that topic over the course of several weeks to maximize participation, outcomes
and behaviour change.

 

In order to fit the needs of an organization, all of our Focus Areas are tailored for our companies in terms of
length, focus, density, activities, communication medium and more. To illustrate how a program is implemented,
at the right is a sample Calendar for Nutrition Fundamentals:

 

Each of our 20+ Focus Areas are strategically designed in order to achieve defined objectives related to the topic.
Our Focus Areas are listed below, each of them with a unique set of goals and outcomes. For example, here are
the major Outcomes for Financial Wellbeing:

Wellness Workshops

A one-off nutrition or stress seminar/workshop sounds great, but can have limited long-term effectiveness. However, when included in a comprehensive on-going program, these workshops can reinforce the guiding principles, measure retention and change. Thorpe Wellness offers a wide variety of workshops to include in your programming.
