Companies have business plans. Sports teams have game plans. Military divisions have battle plans. Having a plan is crucial for success, yet many wellness programs lack communication plans.
A wellness communication plan can guide you through your efforts – making sure you cover needed messages in ways that will be most effective without anything being overlooked, forgotten about or blown off. Consider creating an annual schedule with this FREE Health & Wellness Communications Planning Guide.
By taking the time now to create a guiding document
for 2013, you will save yourself time, energy and stress.
At a minimum, your 2013 communication plan should include:
- What topics you’ll cover each month
- What media you’ll use—newsletter, e-mail, text, poster, PowerPoint, etc. – to deliver your messages
- Who will be responsible for creating the communication – including writer, editor, designer, photographer, etc.
- When work on each communication piece needs to start
- When the final communication piece is due
- When you plan to distribute the communication piece
Without a communication plan, you could sabotage your entire wellness program ─ or at least keep it from being as successful as it could be because you may overlook important health and wellness messages when they would be most well received.
With a schedule for 2013, you can work well in advance of when you plan to deliver your messages so they are well thought out and thorough instead of thrown together haphazardly at the last minute.
