FSE Continues Wellness InitiativeJanuary 2013
Four Seasons Environmental, Inc. is continuing its Wellness Initiative, which started in 2011, through a second Wellness Screening.
"We're trying to focus on the employee's health and wellbeing, helping them to gauge their overall wellness," says Christel Cousino, human resources manager 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.
"Like the screening last year, this screening will create a starting point for each person participating," Christel explains. "Each participant will receive a baseline showing their current overall wellness and use it as a starting point to help make serious lifestyle changes."
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 January 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 and eight $250 gift cards. Additional prizes may be included. If your spouse is covered under your FSE medical plan, he or she is eligible for the same incentives, except the raffle prizes.
If you haven't already, sign up today to visit one of Quest Diagnostics Patient Service Centers to undergo the free wellness screening by January 31st. 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.
