We are excited to help enable a company’s workforce take charge of their health.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
StepForward is moving into corporate wellness and leveraging their successful health tracking and behavior modification platform to help employers reduce healthcare costs and absenteeism while increasing productivity and morale.
Research done by American Sports Data shows those individuals who exercise frequently stayed home from work on an average of 2.11 days annually compared to 3.06 days for individuals who were sedentary. While employers are paying 78 percent more in healthcare costs according to the North Carolina Medical Journal, other companies are utilizing wellness programs in hopes of combating employee health issues and increasing healthcare costs.
StepForward is now offering one-on-one behavioral coaching to help companies better implement preventative strategies and disease management. This value added service increases the return on investment (ROI) of a corporate wellness program and provides the necessary tools employees need to live healthy. While most corporate wellness programs have a 1:3 ROI, StepForward’s co-branded platform and coaching provides a 1:6 ROI.
With features like an integrated health tracking system, constant feedback loop, self-directed suggestions for change, one-on-one behavioral coaching, journal, access to relevant medical news, and a personality assessment, StepForward makes corporate wellness easy and successful.
“We are excited to help enable a company’s workforce take charge of their health,” said Renee Perschin-Usem, President of StepForward. “Our goal, in partnering with national corporations, is to help improve corporate efforts to make their workforce engaged with healthy behavior, while reducing claim costs and creating a productive work environment. Our one-on-one coaching to change behavior sets us apart from other similar products in the marketplace.”
This comprehensive integrated co-branded platform aims to improve outcomes and reduce claims by leveraging a customized platform. Companies can expect improved employee productivity, reduced medical claims, and a higher ROI through corporate co-branding.
