Here's the truth.
Physical and mental health may seem like big, scary and complex problems. And in some cases they are. But the VAST majority of medical cases (up to 96% in the case of MSK) are totally preventable.
You can ensure employees are healthy & present enough to do their best work by introducing them to simple self-care secrets that simultaneously improve physical AND emotional health.
However, they have to be taught in a way that engages and empowers your employees, otherwise these techniques are forgotten in a week and never become a health habit.
The key concept is that employees struggle with physical and emotional health not because they don’t have the desire to be healthy, but because they’re unsure where to start or are too scared or embarrassed to take action. When they do take action they often lose momentum quickly because they lack guidance and that fear or embarrassment re-appears before they get traction.

Drawing on personal experience and a desire to help others with similar issues, she decided to pursue nutrition full time. In 2011, she graduated from Bauman College, a holistic nutrition and culinary arts academy, in Santa Cruz, California, moved to Southern California, and launched her own business.
In her career, Nikki has helped a wide range of people — from cancer patients to elite-level athletes — achieve health goals and improve overall performance through better nutrition.
How do the MRx Employee Well-being Workshops Work?
Each workshop is about 55 minutes and includes Q&A. But there's FAR more to it than just the live virtual session. Here's how we like to work with you to develop the workshops and elevate their impact.
Onboarding: MRx Employee Self-Assessments
Before the first workshop, our quick and simple Work Health self-assessments give employees useful data around their emotional and physical function, plus insights into work fulfillment. Only aggregate info is tracked to identify areas ripe for impact. You then get an understanding of overall employee physical and emotional health status, health risk, and work fulfillment. Plus see how that compares to other populations and what can be done to improve those scores.
Onboarding: Identify What Your Employees REALLY Want and Need
We work with you to understand the stated and un-stated wants and needs of the people in your organization. Claims data can be helpful, but we find that our simple survey provides the information that sets you up for ongoing engagement and impact.
Onboarding: Choose the Well-being Curriculum
With that data in hand we work with you to design a well-being workshop schedule of topics. Common options include aligning topics with monthly observances or planning a deeper dive through progressive series (i.e. Food and Feelings, The Body Fix, Burnout and Compassion, etc). We have over 120 topics to choose from. Plan the whole year, or just the first quarter.
Monthly: Workshop Promotions and Awareness
Let us design the assets and campaigns, or simply support any existing protocols you have. Emails, fliers, graphics, videos - you name it, we can create it. We like to segment the message for leaders, for early adopters, for the masses and for those who just don't normally participate.
Monthly: Delivering the Workshop(s)
Well-being education needs to be engaging and entertaining. It needs to speak to the heart and the mind. All of our workshops are led by engaging presenters, include interesting polls and include interactive activities. As for tech - we are platform agnostic. Zoom, MS Teams, Google Meet.
Monthly: Workshop After Action Tools
So we just delivered an engaging workshop that employees are jazzed about. Now what? Every workshop has a set of After Action resources so employees have a 'What's Next' to create behaviors. A related Challenge, a list of recipes, a go-to list of short videos are all good ideas.
Monthly: How Did We Do? Let's Check the Feedback.
We can request the feedback or provide you a suggested survey to get feedback. We make sure to ask before the end of the workshop AND in a separate email afterwards. It is amazing how valuable the nuggets of information are when you ask the right questions!
Monthly: Get the Rx with Our Reporting
We'll share the quantitative and qualitative insights with you after the workshop. We'll work together to update the well-being prescription - the Rx - and update our approach to addressing employees’ immediate and long-term well-being outcomes.

FAQs: As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
How quickly can we schedule a Workshop?
That's tough to answer. If we thread the needle with the right topic, day and time, we can get you on the calendar as quickly as next week. Typically we'll schedule the first workshop a month after we agree to work together. Want to discover if this is a good fit? Find a time to talk here: https://movement-rx.com/mrx-employee-workshop-discussion/ Upon submitting a calendar time, you'll have the option to coordinate details on a call or via email.
How can I make sure I get employee messages like those in your testimonials?
Simple. Just schedule the sessions at an appropriate time, use our marketing to encourage engagement with the self-assessments, and participate yourself! You’ll see or hear about employees using these techniques on their own, and - with your org's permission - we’ll share their amazing feedback on our website!
How do you handle employee confidentiality?
Great question. Every employee's assessment data is private and never shared. We do discuss population-level results with you during the After Action call. During the actual Seminar, employees can ask questions anonymously. What we have found is that many employees REALLY DO want to share how they're feeling, and that can happen via the chat tool if the employee wishes.
Is this inclusive of all types of physical abilities?
Absolutely. We are actually thought leaders in making health & fitness accessible to what we call the Adaptive population. Wheelchair, missing limb, congenital challenge, TBI - you name it and we can make it work.
What if we aren’t sure if employees have physical or emotional health issues?
The MRx Workshops can be used both pre-emptively and reactively. So whether employees have diagnoses or not, they will get something out of the training. FYI, EVERY SINGLE self-insured employer we speak to lists musculoskeletal (i.e. physical) and mental (i.e. emotional) health as top 4 insurance claims costs.
What days are workshops available?
Workshops are typically scheduled for 1 hour. Popular times are late morning to early afternoon, M-F. However, with enough planning we can make most times work, as long as they fall between 8am and 10pm ET.
Will I get anything to share with employees?
We will provide promotional materials and links for employees to learn about and register for the workshops. The after action resources and recording for each session will be provided within 24 hours of the workshop.
How are the Workshops different from other wellness seminars?
For any well-being topic, there are the dynamism of the presenter, the examples and cues they provide, and the research use to support the presentation. But most important is the sense that the presenter CARES about the attendees. We combine dynamic speakers, proven cues, useful data, and a philosophy of caring. Plus all the expert logistics, promotions and data analytics stuff.
We have already had your team provide us training before. Will there be new material?
Thank you for believing in our approach to health and well-being, and our ability to effectively teach that approach. We are always evolving and updating our trainings based on new clinical insights and research. Chances are you haven't had all the 100+ workshop topics taught to your team!
How often can we have Workshops?
Most organizations do one a month, but those with multiple divisions, time zone considerations or shift work might schedule more each month.
What if an employee can’t make it to the live training?
While attending the live virtual session is great for team-building and for getting questions asked, the session(s) will be recorded. We typically use Zoom, but can easily use the video platform your employees are accustomed to.
What can I do if I still have questions?
If you have questions after our Discovery Call, just ask. Shoot a quick email to email@example.com with the words ‘MRx Workshops’ in the subject line and our expert support team will jump in and help out. The good news is that you can ask well-being-related questions in the workshops and when we review the Workshop Reports.
