The National Association for Health and Fitness has designated May as Global Employee Health and Fitness Month!
Halcyon’s participation in Global Employee Health and Fitness Month began with health insurance open enrollment meetings for our employees. The theme for this year’s open enrollment is wellness…wellness is more important now than ever before!
During this time, Halcyon is rolling out or re-introducing several new wellness programs for our employees for the 2013 plan year: healthy lifestyle coaching, employee assistance program, biometric screening and health risk assessments (which will result in a personal plan of action for each employee), a 24/7 nurse line and much more.
Along with these resources, we continue to distribute several communication pieces to our employees, including a monthly newsletter each Wednesday (we call this Wellness Wednesday) and adding the Quality Time newsletter from our health insurance provider to Halcyon’s ADP site. Wellness Wednesday newsletters incorporate a variety of things such as healthy recipes, quick tips for buying fruits and veggies, incorporating technology into workouts and healthy alternatives to common unhealthy foods. Quality Time has content that is built around a monthly theme, such as celebrating life, workplace fulfillment and personal growth.
Halcyon’s employees provide a priceless service to patients and families, and we’re investing in a range of tools that will help them continue to lead healthy and productive lives. As we go throughout Global Employee Health and Fitness Month, please join me in letting our team members know how much they’re appreciated.
