The marketing plan will be prepared for the project of the Weber State University - Employee wellness program. This healthcare program would cater to the employees of Weber State University. The employees can highly benefit from its healthcare services offering them different advantages while working in the University. This will be a separate company owned by the HR department. The university employees are the primary target of the company. The program tends to run along the academic calendar year when it comes to our wellness classes and challenges, so a good time frame to use would be a specific number of semesters. For example, we could promote the Wellness Pays program in a certain way during spring semester. Or we could market a new class that is beginning in the upcoming Fall semester during the Summer semester (Gutman 2002).
