ADP has partnered with actuarial-based wellness program provider The Vitality Group to launch the ADP Vitality wellness solution. The solution is an incentive-based wellness program that midsized employers can use to motivate employees to make healthier life choices that lower healthcare costs, increase morale and improve the health of employees.
With rates of obesity, diabetes and other chronic diseases on the rise, employers have been forced to control costs through workforce reductions, offering fewer health plans to employees and shifting more costs to employees.
The ADP Vitality wellness solution is designed to assist midsized companies with between 50 and 1,000 employees to foster a culture of health and wellness, while helping to reduce healthcare claims, health-related costs and employee absenteeism. Participants have access to an interactive wellness portal that features educational resources and tools to help them pursue a healthier lifestyle.
Key features of the program include health risk assessments, biometric screenings and personalized wellness plans with recommended goals and activities. The program integrates with social networking sites, mobile applications and fitness technologies to give employees additional support as they pursue their wellness goals. When employees achieve plan goals, they can earn points toward lowering their monthly health plan contributions.
