Corporate Wellness no longer means paying for unused gym memberships, offering access to countless libraries of unread health articles, and forcing employees to participate in biometric screening with the misguided hope of scaring employees into action.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 15, 2010
As politicians in Washington debate health care reform, Corporate America wrestles with their own Trillion Dollar Question: How do we increase employee productivity and decrease our health care costs? The Answer: Re-define “corporate wellness”.
Today, Konamoxt, Inc. the maker of Sweat365.com, unveils “The Healthy Corp” a breakthrough product that RE-DEFINES “Corporate Wellness”. The Healthy Corp, is a new kind of Corporate Wellness Platform, that allows corporations to customize their wellness offerings to match their unique corporate culture and address the specific needs of their employees. Corporate Wellness no longer means paying for unused gym memberships, offering access to countless libraries of unread health articles, and forcing employees to participate in biometric screening with the misguided hope of scaring employees into action. Although in theory each of these components plays some part in a well-rounded wellness program, alone, they miss the target.
To sharpen your aim, The Healthy Corp adds the secret: Engaging the hearts and minds of employees; creating new habits; and allowing you to do it your way. The Healthy Corp offers a customizable wellness platform to companies committed to increasing employee productivity and reducing their overall health care costs. Employees engage by utilizing challenges, lively programs, and interactive forums that fit the personality and lifestyle of the individual and the company. It’s the power of community.
The advantages of a healthy workforce are undeniable. We already know that healthy employees have fewer medical claims, are less absent, have less disability, and have greater on the job productivity. The cost of being overweight and obese in America is estimated at $117 billion a year, and three of the leading treatable conditions (asthma, diabetes, and hypertension) are associated with 164 million lost work days per year at a cost to employers of $30 billion. No wonder companies report spending as much as 50% of their operating profits on healthcare costs. The question is, how do we create a platform for people to change their habits?
The majority of premature disabilities and deaths are linked to personal behavior. These behaviors significantly drive up the cost of health care and reduce productivity. The good news is these behaviors can be changed. The Healthy Corp platform is designed to facilitate these behavior changes. It is both flexible and affordable. Companies can customize the platform so that it aligns with their own corporate culture. The cost of the platform is less than most companies spend on employee snacks and drinks.
Our team works closely with your Human Resource team and Wellness Coordinators to develop an online program and community that taps into the unique personality of your organization to truly engage your employees and inspire them to work toward their wellness goals. More than just static content rehashing well-known facts about the health risks of common lifestyle choices, our powerful platform includes advanced publishing tools and patent pending technology to present the information tailored for the individual, groups, divisions, or corporation as a whole. By leveraging the latest technology in interactive content design, social networks, video, audio and rich multimedia, as well on evidence based research on incentivizing employees to engage in positive behavior changing habits, we create immersive web-based wellness programs that demonstrate real engagement and behavior change.
