Incentives to stay healthy can result in a happier, healthier, more productive workplace – and may lead to cost savings for your business.


Studies show that employers who support wellness have a positive impact on their workplace: increased productivity, reduced absenteeism and presenteeism (working while sick), lower overall healthcare costs and increased employee satisfaction.


Here’s how we can help.
Our health plans make employee wellness a priority by encouraging employees to become active, informed health care users. Your employees can learn to:

We help your employees assess their health.
After completing a confidential health assessment, employees will have a personal health plan and a wealth of tools to take charge of their health. Employees can journal, learn proper exercise techniques, start a nutrition plan, and use online quizzes, calculators, and demonstrations to start a healthier lifestyle.
