It sounded so good. You would have a safer workplace, healthier employees, lower premiums, … the works. Everyone signed up for it. And then immediately forgot the whole thing. It’s not that you haven’t done everything you can think of to get them engaged. But now all that’s left is the monthly bill for a program no one’s using. Maybe you need to rethink the entire approach.
The GoPivot approach eliminates pointless rewards, misfit solutions, and wasted dollars. It’s how our safety clients reduce OSHA incidents by 60% and our wellness clients have average engagement of over 52%. Our approach is so effective that we make a commitment to every client: If your people don’t change, you don’t get charged.
GoPivot uses point-based rewards as a more effective way to motivate your employees, so you can reduce OSHA incidents, improve health and wellness, or drive any other new initiative. Too often with these initiatives, people’s good intentions turn into broken promises. That’s because employees need a more compelling reason to change. The GoPivot approach eliminates pointless rewards, misfit solutions, and wasted dollars. It’s how our FitWarrior participants lose an average of 25 pounds, and how our safety clients reduce OSHA incidents by 40–60%. Our approach is so effective that we make a commitment to every client: If your people don’t change, you don’t get charged.
It all started on the back of a napkin at a New Year’s Eve party in 2002.
Three family members had just cracked the code on how to reduce workplace accidents – by using the proven psychology of reward points to change employee behavior. They took their methodology to market, and it worked so well that their clients started asking if they could use this points model to drive wellness programs as well as safety initiatives.
Meanwhile, 400 miles away, a fitness fanatic was spending his free time creating customized health plans for coworkers. Soon, he realized employees at other companies had the same need. So, he started a business. His programs were extremely successful for everyone who participated. But there was a problem: Not everyone was motivated enough to participate.
In 2017, both companies realized they each had something special which the other needed. So, they came together to form GoPivot.
At GoPivot, we take the concept “work hard, play hard” to another level. We are cyclists, wellness enthusiasts, fitness instructors, paddleboarders, rollerbladers, and our own biggest cheerleaders. We host in-office Fit-Ins and classes, drink smoothies, and get outdoors as much as possible.
At GoPivot, we know the wellness of our employees and clients is only as good as the wellness of our communities. We are committed to giving back and are actively involved with the Special Olympics, Atlanta Community Food Bank, and this year we hosted a fundraising charity pickle ball event benefitting The Launchpad Foundation of Atlanta.
We looked at ourselves and our competition, and we made a big pivot. We ditched the PEPM model in favor of billing upon engagement and completion of activities, which is unheard of in this industry.
Let’s face it, we can’t all be marathon runners, but we can all improve and live a healthier, higher quality of life.
Winning cultures have robust wellness programs. Rewarding employees for taking steps to improve their physical and mental well-being sends a message to your employees that you care about them.
