When a company first implements their wellness program, they will often seek the advice and expertise of a corporate wellness expert on how to purchase fitness equipment. As a wellness expert, you should be able to answer whatever questions your company may have. That means understanding their needs, limitations, and all the potential possibilities available for their corporate wellness program.
Work within the Company’s Budget
Before you can even begin thinking about purchasing fitness equipment, you and your company will need to sit down and figure out a budget. This budget will cover the expenses of furnishing your company’s new fitness center and must be realistic. Advise your company to not purchase fitness equipment if their budget hasn’t been established. Doing so could result in your company spending more than they can afford.
Survey Employees about Their Preferred Fitness Equipment
After you have set a budget, you need to find out what your company’s employees are looking for when it comes to their corporate wellness program. You don’t want your company to buy stationary bikes or ellipticals if their employees want treadmills so they can take a power walk over their lunch break.
By taking this information into consideration, it will ensure that they don’t spend money on exercise machines that will not be used. Their employees will also be more satisfied knowing that their voices were heard and got the fitness equipment that they preferred.
