How data drives our personalized incentive program
Employees begin the Take a Healthy Step journey by completing the MyHealth Questionnaire, an online assessment tool. This questionnaire provides an overall health score based on employee responses and suggests specific Healthy Step activities. A recommended biometric screening provides important information that complements the information gathered from the MyHealth Questionnaire. Screenings can uncover hidden health issues, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. These initial assessments offer employees a snapshot of their current health.
All activities are tracked and reported online. The platform helps employers track member engagement and the number of incentive points earned, freeing human resources personnel from having to do this work manually.
By offering employees engaging tools and activities designed to improve their most pressing health issues, our incentive program improves wellness, mitigates health risks, and reduces your company’s costs.
