We offer proven techniques and incentive options to encourage employees to exercise, adopt healthy eating habits, reduce risk factors, improve their health, and become wise consumers of healthcare to minimize costs.

 

When accessing the homepage of the Wellness Challenge portal, employees can plan and track their wellness activities, read the latest wellness news and program information, and communicate and collaborate with each other on a wide range of wellness issues and topics.

 

The Wellness Events calendar allows employees to get more details on specific activities, seminars or other health and wellness events.

 

The Scorecard is where employees can record their exercise and fitness activities, as well as other health and wellness events, so those activities can be counted toward completion of established criteria.
