FSE Kicks Off Wellness InitiativeDecember 2011
On November 8th, Four Seasons Environmental, Inc. kicked off a new, company-wide campaign.
"We're trying to focus on the employee's health and wellness, helping them get to where they want to be," says Christel Cousino, commissioning administrative coordinator for FSE.
To kick off the initiative, FSE teamed up with Aetna and Quest Diagnostics to provide employees, and their spouses who are currently enrolled in their medical plan, with free wellness screening. This screening, which consists of a blood draw and biometric screening of height, weight and blood pressure, will help provide employees and qualified spouses with a baseline.
"This screening will create a starting point for each person participating," Christel explains. "They can look at their baseline now and use it as a starting point to help make serious lifestyle changes for their benefit and their family’s benefit."
In addition, the screening will also help FSE to plan for the future of its wellness initiative, tailoring the campaign to help as many employees as possible. The individual results will be pulled into an aggregate and anonymous report that will allow FSE to choose wellness programs that are most of need for its employees. For instance, if the results show a significant amount of employees has high blood pressure, FSE might look to the American Heart Association’s guidelines to lowering high blood pressure, explains Christel.
In addition to the wide-ranging health benefits made possible by the new campaign, employees also have financial incentives to join the free wellness screening. All employees who participate in the wellness screening by December 31st will receive a free $50 gift card. Additionally, employees can also receive a $50 gift card by completing or updating their Health Assessment through the Aetna website, or through the completion of an online Wellness Program through the Aetna website. Furthermore, all employees who participate in the Wellness Screening will be entered into a raffle to possibly win one of two $1,000 gift cards, four $500 gift cards, eight $250 gift cards, Eat This Not That (book) or LA Fitness gift bags.
If you haven’t already, sign up today to visit one of Quest Diagnostics Patient Service Centers to undergo the free wellness screening by December 31st, 2011. All participants will receive their results online in an easy-to-read report with normal ranges and brief descriptions of the tests within two weeks.
