The unhealthy behaviors of the U.S. workforce cost employers an average of $670 per employee every year.1 When financially rewarded to improve their health status, employees are more likely to make a change – saving money for employers and employees – and improving health status. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota is helping people get healthier through Healthy Incentives, an incentive program designed for groups with 51+ employees, to motivate and reward employees for healthy behavior.
You can help make a difference in your employees’ lives.
In 2009, a large employer working with Blue Cross implemented a groundbreaking, evidence-based “culture of health” initiative combined with the Healthy Incentives program to help encourage healthy lifestyle choices amongst its employees.
