This is the hardest step for many employers. Since there isn’t an agreed upon, gold standard for corporate wellness facilitators, it program it can be difficult to vett different providers.
Over the years we have identified these very important qualities and treat them as the bare minimum requirements for all of our facilitators. Here are some questions you may want to ask a potential corporate wellness provider:
- Does the facilitator have formal teacher training and experience in a corporate environment? 💼
- If the facilitator is leading a movement-based class (ex. chair yoga or mat yoga), are they insured? 🧘♀️
- Does the facilitator understand the nuances of a corporate environment and can they use accessible and inclusive language? 🏢
- Can the provider ensure a backup facilitator in the case that the primary facilitator is unable to lead a session (this is a common issue with individual consultants)? Ideally, your vendor has multiple facilitators so your program is not dependent on a single individual or one-person company. 👥
- How does the facilitator keep the content engaging and fun? No one wants a snooze-fest. Especially one that costs $500! 😉
Great question! A few key things to know about our onsite classes:
- How does pricing work? Pricing is a flat rate for up to 100 attendees, so there is no need to keep refreshing the RSVP list! Custom pricing over 100.
- Is there a minimum or a maximum number of attendees? There is no minimum (although we always like to have at least one! 😂) and the maximum is 100.
- Do you provide classes outside of Chicago/in the surrounding area? The short answer is – probably! Please reach out to us with the location you’re looking for and we can provide you with a quote that includes an additional fee for travel time based on how long it would take a facilitator to make their way to you.
- What is the content of the class? All of our classes have been specifically designed with a corporate audience in mind, no crystals or candles here! The content is secular and does not reference any specific religion or spirituality. Would you like to learn more about a specific class? Just let us know and we’ll send over a sample!
- What else do you provide? Let us take some work off your plate, just let us know when you would like your sessions and we will send over class descriptions and promotional images for internal marketing! We also offer complimentary pre-and post-session surveys.
- Are your facilitators vaccinated? Yes, all of our facilitators are fully vaccinated and can provide proof of vaccination if required!
