Increase Your Employees’ Risk Awareness
Understanding the health of your employee population is necessary when developing wellness programs that address the unique needs of your workforce. Hosting an on-site biometric screening will allow you to capture the data needed to target wellness efforts. This baseline data can be tracked over time to measure the effectiveness of your program.
On-site biometric screenings are available to large group employers. In addition, you must have at least 20 employee participants.
What is an on-site biometric screening?
On-site biometric screenings are a convenient and effective way to capture pertinent health information. Biometric screenings include height, weight (to measure BMI), blood pressure, and a blood draw, which measures glucose, total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglycerides. These biometric markers are chosen because they’re the leading indicators for diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
Why is a biometric screening important?
The goal of an on-site biometric screening is to help your employees “know their numbers.” A timely biometric health screening can have a tremendously positive impact on an employee’s health, productivity, and well-being. When individuals become aware of their health risks, they are more likely to take a proactive role in their personal health.
Benefits for Employees: Employees will receive an individualized, comprehensive report that provides information about their current health status, as well as how to interpret their numbers. This confidential report is a powerful tool for engaging employees in their health.
Benefits for Your Company: The comprehensive results you receive after the screening will help you drive targeted wellness interventions. This data set will serve as the basis for goals and objectives and can be tracked over time. The report will show risk stratification and help you identify areas of focus for your wellness program.
