How to Host a Successful Fall Health Fair

If you’re a Kansas City employer, you know what fall means. We’re not just talking about football games and bonfires. Open enrollment is just around the corner. One way to kick off the season is an employee health fair. Health fairs can educate employees on wellness tips and encourage them to take steps toward preventive and/or diagnostic care. If you’re interested in hosting a health fair for your employees, here are a few recommendations:

Invite the health community to participate

Doctors and hospitals often leap on the opportunity to participate in a health fair. It’s a win-win. They get to meet and talk with your employees. Your employees get to know possible healthcare practitioners and receive health education. In the end, you benefit from having both of them there when it translates to healthier employees who are proactive about their health.

Host the health fair in the office

A health fair doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Just assign an internal person to invite guests and host it in your common area. A cafeteria or lobby is plenty of space for a health fair. Just line the walls with tables and let vendors set up.

Don’t forget about drug and alcohol testing

You may associate health fairs with the more traditional vendors like physicians and hospitals, but as drug and alcohol testing experts, we like to share our knowledge! We can educate your employees on the effects of drug and alcohol and how drug testing works. We can also give them the information they need in the event they have teens who also might require our services.

Encourage a complementary test or discounted rate of service

Ask some of your vendors if they’d provide a complementary service or test in order to attract more employees. Some chiropractors might do quick shoulder massages. Others might have abilities to check blood sugar or blood pressure. We’d also be happy to attend and offer a discounted flu shot for anyone who comes by. The possibilities are endless!
