Viverae’s Vanguard Award is a proud acknowledgement of our employees’ commitment to healthier lives.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 10, 2014
The Vanguard Award was presented to Ensign Services by Viverae, a national leader in health management solutions. Viverae reviewed health management programs for more than 200 clients to determine excellence in best-practice categories such as population requirements, incentive design and value, program participation, strong leadership support and an effective communication strategy. Additionally, eligible clients must have a designated wellness coordinator and provide Biometric Screenings.
Key factors for Ensign Service’s leadership in these best practices include the following:
- Award-winning program offered to more than 15,000 employees in 138 locations in 11 states
- An inclusive program offered to all employees, including those not covered under their health plan
- More than 50,000 Viverae educational courses and webinars completed by program members
- Steady year-over-year reduction in 11 of the 12 primary risk factors
- Increase from 80.6 to 85.9 average Viverae Health Score, which calculates data from members’ health assessments and Biometric Screenings on a 100-point scale
- Regional wellness champions tasked with encouraging participation
- Strong incentives for participation including cash deposits into a Health Savings Account
“When best practices in health management are combined with a supportive culture for wellness, it makes a powerful difference in employees’ lives and extends to the health of their families,” said Mike Lamb, President and Chief Operating Officer at Viverae. “We are pleased to recognize Ensign Services for making the health of their employees a priority.”
Ensign Services has been a client of Viverae since 2011. During this time, Jennifer Weinstein, Benefits, Compensation and HRIS Director at Ensign Services was awarded the Benefits Professional of the Year Benny Award from Employee Benefits News; this award acknowledges outstanding professionals in the employee benefits and human resources field.
“Viverae’s Vanguard Award is a proud acknowledgement of our employees’ commitment to healthier lives,” said Weinstein. “Healthcare professionals’ compassionate nature can make them prone to focusing more on others’ well-being than their own health. Viverae has equipped us with a health management program that works, and our employees are healthier and more loyal.”
