For years, employers have understood that workforce health is key to the promotion of morale, productivity and profits. At the same time, employers are struggling with the challenge of maintaining balance between a sustainable business plan and rapidly rising health care costs.
Studies show that employee wellness programs are an important way employers can help address health care costs. Mercy's Workforce Health Initiative uses an early detection and prevention approach plus employee education and health coaching to enhance workforce health and contain employer healthcare costs.
The Mercy Workforce Health Initiative is a comprehensive workplace wellness program designed specifically for employers. It requires minimal expenditure of human or monetary resources. Working together, we can help focus efforts you already have in place or give you the means to begin taking control of employee health benefit costs while enhancing employee productivity and morale.
One of the key features of Mercy's Workforce Health Initiative is our Core Wellness Screening. Not only does this screening provide employees and their family members with confidential clinical data and educational information about their risks, it provides the employer with an Executive Summary, a real-time "health snapshot" of your workforce. This summary provides a very valuable analysis of current and potential health risks that, left untreated, could result in significant health claims expense.
Most importantly, the Executive Summary identifies health risks unique and specific to your employees. This allows us to take a proactive approach to controlling employee health care costs through a variety of creative, engaging and sustainable wellness solutions.
Get started today, and we’ll help you save money tomorrow.
