Health Risk Assessment (HRA)

A health risk assessment (also known as a health risk appraisal) is an instrument used to collect health information, to assess an individual's health status, risks, and habits. An HRA can engage employees in their health, shape lifestyle choices, and promote prevention, HRAs can be enormously effective.

  • Johnson & Johnson reduced employee medical claims by almost $250 per year per employee over four years after it adopted a company-wide program that required employees to fill out HRAs and offered "benefit credit" incentives of up to $500 for employees to take advantage of various wellness programs.
  • Bank of America, Citibank, Proctor & Gamble, NASA, King County (in Washington State), and the State of Arkansas have all reported similar success stories following the adoption of aggressive HRA programs.

  • chronic diseases-asthma, cancer, diabetes;

Employee Wellness Coaching

What's the first thing you feel like doing after having a frustrating day at work? Coming home and complaining to your spouse, roommate, or best friend, right? Commiseration and validation of our emotions feels good, and usually brings us closer to others when we feel like they understand our experiences or feelings.

While you're actually at work, though, it can be difficult for employees to share their emotions in an appropriate or constructive way. Employees may worry that venting frustration, anger, or disappointment could get them labeled as a problem employee and hurt their chances of promotion and success at work. But what if there was a way for your company to participate in the same type of commiseration and validation you experience in your personal life within a work setting?

Wellness Coaching boosts program engagement and research shows that live wellness coaching has led current health programs to boost their enrollment and continued long-term engagement. Using one-on-one wellness coach can be conducive to engaging those who may not otherwise be inclined to participate in a wellbeing program. Plus, the personalization of a wellness coach encourages accountability and fosters a sense of validation and motivation.

Ultimately, by having a professional guide your employees personally, they are more likely to stick it out through challenges.

Behavioral Wellness

Our Behavioral Wellness Program offers critical incident stress management support services to managers and employees to help them cope with the impact of any workplace event that may disrupt the present or future productivity of your workforce due to psychological stress or trauma. Traumatic or stressful incidents may take a toll not only on individual employees, but on the organization itself. Critical Incident Stress Management services may reduce the potential for absenteeism, low morale, diminished productivity, employee turnover, and disability claims. Debriefings provide an opportunity for attendees to talk about what happened and to process the emotional and psychological impact of the event. A debriefing offers a safe environment for employees to share thoughts and feelings and support one another. The facilitator helps to normalize their responses to the event, provide information about stress management and/or coping with grief, and inform about possible resources including the EAP. CISM's services can be delivered to a group of employees or individually. The facilitator also may make available educational handouts specific to the incident.

Examples of critical incidents

  • Death of an employee (on or offsite)
  • Workplace Reduction/Reorganization
  • Robberies
  • Natural Disaster
  • Suicide
  • Homicide
  • Industrial accidents
  • Workforce reduction/reorganization
  • Acts of violence or terrorism
