Our Life-Dimensional Approach

We Put Health Challenges Into Context

Employees face numerous challenges—physical, psychological, and social—that can become barriers to maintaining good health. They may lack a support system. Have untreated mental health issues. Cultural differences. And socioeconomic struggles, just to mention a few.

While other programs ignore the totality of the human experience or try to fit this complex reality into a predetermined box, we work to understand people and provide solutions that address every dimension of their lives, seeing people as the sum of all their experiences.

We take the time to make connections between health, data, work, and personal experiences; then meet people where they are at with solutions that are compatible to their unique individual circumstances.

We Focus on the Whole Person

Our approach supports the multiple dimensions of a person’s life as opposed to current, fragmented single-point solutions.

Intrinsic Motivation Is Key

We go beyond the physical to understand people’s inner perceptions and aspirations to create personalized plans that maximize engagement.

Backed by Science, Measured by Data

Data guides our programs at WellSpark, helping us achieve measurable and enduring results that positively impact both employers and employees.

WellSpark goes beyond employee health, productivity, and satisfaction by mitigating future healthcare costs, disability, workers compensation, and absenteeism.

A Biopsychosocial Approach For All of Life’s Dimensions

Everything we do at WellSpark is delivered through the life-dimensional lens. We understand people’s health is the result of their entire life experience – with biological, psychological, and social factors often acting as barriers to wellbeing.

Biological

Biological

We start with the physical vital signs that point to good health. On the surface this includes things like age, gender, biometrics, and medical history. But we don’t stop there. We dive deep into a person’s lifestyle to understand their diet, exercise, and sleep habits to get a clear view of their biological profile; giving us a solid foundation for us to start building our care approach.

Then we dig into the emotional vital signs. This can include anything that a person experiences; thought patterns, emotions and feelings, coping mechanisms, mental diseases, biases, beliefs, and beyond. Understanding how people perceive the world is critical to providing them the support that they want, need, and most importantly, will accept.

Social

Social

Unlike other wellbeing programs, our life-dimensional approach includes measuring social vital signs as a key component to total-person health. Relationships, work life, finances, hobbies and obligations — all can act as potential barriers to wellness. With our life-dimensional model, we’re able to identify these obstacles and provide the social support system people need to succeed.
