(PRWEB) February 04, 2014
Industry-leading corporate health and wellness programs provider, Empowris, today announced the broad launch of the Empowris Marketplace. After closing out a successful 2013 – and garnering an Industry Innovator award from the Institute for HealthCare Consumerism – the company prepares for another strong year as it develops its network in select US markets.
Empowris initiated the roll-out of its unique, community-based programs with a recent market launch in Louisville, Kentucky, along with employee participation in both Mississippi and Texas. The Marketplace provides employers and their employees with access to qualified weight management programs that focus on the areas of physical activity, diet and nutrition, and lifestyle and behavioral changes. These programs have been carefully designed by Empowris to boost employee satisfaction, morale, and productivity through improvement in overall health.
Each program is pre-qualified in its corresponding market to ensure its functionality and ability to deliver results. Upon implementation, Empowris closely tracks individual employee participation and progress, using its custom software application to aggregate the data into a detailed quarterly report for employers to review. This process allows the Empowris Marketplace to provide a highly effective, highly accountable way for companies to have a hand in enhancing the health and well-being of their employees.
“We are excited to offer our employees and their spouses access to the Empowris marketplace,” said Karen Hicks, Vice President of Human Resources at Kentucky-based Empowris client, Zeon Chemicals Inc. “It’s a seamless, cost-effective way to provide them with a broad choice of valuable programs that best meet their individual needs and preferences.”
