Worksite wellness programs are becoming more and more important to the success of any company as the Center for Disease Control has noted.The STA Group’s wellness strategy called for the company to cover 100% of health insurance premiums including vision, dental, and medical for every employee which they have done since its inception in 2002. They also offer a generous Health Savings Account in conjunction with their health plan. As part of STA’s continuing wellness mission, the Executive Staff elected to partner with Interactive Health last year, as part of the companies benefit package.
Interactive Health provides all STA employees and their spouses with multiple health resources such as health webinars and in-house health screenings including two free blood tests per year. Participants of the screenings receive personalized raw health data that list at least 40 different data elements such as glucose, hemoglobin and potassium along with other health indicators. Each individual’s health data is then compounded into one easy to understand health score. More importantly, Interactive Health offers personalized resources and solutions to keep health scores on track so every employee has the opportunity to reach their health goals.
Teladoc is yet another service included in STA’s benefits package. This program permits all employees access to a members only toll free hotline to consult with licensed physicians or schedule consultation appointments anytime 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
“We take the wellbeing of our associates seriously as an important part of our company’s core values. Introducing Interactive Health’s wellness plan has been another demonstration of that commitment."
– David Dillon, Senior Managing Director
