Increasing Wellness Program Participation
One of the nation’s largest health systems wanted to provide a more engaging wellness program for over 80,000 employees throughout hundreds of locations. Because its current tracking capabilities were scattered among various websites and vendors, the program was confusing and disorganized, reporting was inconsistent and irrelevant, and program-wide return on investment was impossible to track.
Delivering Return on Wellness
The company, a U.S. chain of truck stops with over 24,000 employees across 550 gas stations and stop locations, was faced with the challenge of finding a wellness program that could accommodate its culture and employees. The geographical dispersion and on-the-move aspect of the employees’ jobs made it challenging to capture viable reporting and information on their health. The nature of the employees’ work also made it difficult for them to to make healthy eating choices, access the web portal for electronic communication, and participate in the program.
Proving Productivity ROI
One of the top bank holding companies in the U.S. faced challenges with its existing corporate wellness program, which lacked customization and the breadth of wellness services the company wanted. Participation was low amongst the nearly 5,000 employees in over 300 national locations, particularly because the program was only available for those enrolled in the bank’s health insurance plan. Privacy concerns, a non-comprehensive web portal that was difficult to access, and just three screening locations nationwide compounded the general lack of wellness engagement and absence of reliable data and reporting.
