Wellness Program Highlights

One of our goals is to meet employees where they are regardless of their health status or stage of change, to be relatable to any employee regardless of social, cultural, or demographic differences. In 2018, we experienced high engagement in our overall programs and resources. A total of 60% of our employees participated in any one program. This level of engagement is encouraging given our population size of over 80,000 employees and widespread locations of over 100 facilities. That statistic captures not only how successful we are in being relatable to our employees, but it is also indicative of our overall culture and engagement in health.

In an effort to engage our leadership team, we developed and launched leadership biometrics screenings that offered leaders with an executive level biometric screening experience. Our goal was to create a personalized, relaxing, convenient moment for leaders to focus on their health in a resort-like atmosphere. Clinical and laboratory evaluations are based on the CREATION Health lifestyle principles of whole-person health, including mind, body, and spirit. Screening Exams and Tests Include complete blood count (CBC) with differential, genomic test or food sensitivity test, body composition testing, step test with electrocardiogram (EKG) and carotid artery ultrasound. Additionally, leaders can choose one of the following: 30 minutes brain health evaluation, fitness evaluation, personal training session, nutrition evaluation, or mindfulness meditation session. To date, we have exceeded our goals in engaging our leaders while providing them a personalized approach to wellness.

“In my role overseeing organizational culture, I have been excited to see the larger role our CREATION Health initiatives are playing in advancing our culture of engagement and well-being. Our CREATION Health team is using a variety of approaches to address a diverse workforce, including a focus on the unique whole-person health needs of men and women, as well as those with low health risks and those already dealing with risk factors and chronic health conditions. The work they are doing is capturing engagement across a wide spectrum of our workforce because of the commitment by this team to comprehensive programming addressing mind, body, and spiritual health.”

“It excites me to see the change in our employees. After they engage in our programming, we hear from them and they are so grateful. They share some of the changes that they have made and that they are happier and healthier, not only at work, but also in their personal lives. In turn, they contribute to a positive culture and it’s truly remarkable to see that change in our team members.”
