Jane was struggling with her weight and body image and battling depression too. Her BMI was very unhealthy, she had a habit of missing work, was on multiple medications, and she fell into bad health habits when she was under stress.
Workpartners conducted a comprehensive analysis of her company’s benefits usage. It identified Jane as a high-risk employee—one of the 5 percent of employees who typically account for more than 50 percent of an organization’s health care costs. A member of Workpartners’ KnovaSolutions clinical prevention service contacted Jane to offer their expert advice and support.
Jane spoke with a health coach, started seeing a therapist, and as the year went on, she used other Workpartners programs to stay on track. Any time she felt her progress slipping, she reached back out to her health coach for support.
At the end of the year, Jane’s work performance improved so much that she earned a promotion. She lost 150 pounds, stopped the use of multiple medications and started running with her co-workers on the weekends. With her newfound confidence she set her sights on completing a half-marathon.
