Employee Wellness Program
January 1st, 2016 marks the third year of our three-year wellness plan, On the Way to Wellness. Year three is the Year of Results. This year we are increasing programming and providing more options for our employees and spouses.
Indiana State University is providing the opportunity to engage their employees and provide real-life results in regards to health and wellness. Activity trackers can provide improvements in employee productivity, engagement, morale and job satisfaction, retention, and healthcare costs. Providing our employees with activity trackers and UP for Groups, an online platform, will help to deliver wellness benefits to those who participate.
Employee Wellness will be selling the UP Move at a cost of $31.00 per device. There are many features to the UP Move which are:
Tracks steps, exercise, overall calories burned.
Also tracks hours slept and quality of sleep. (Manually Turn-on)
Track your food, drink, calories, nutrients and use the UP App Food Score to quickly know if you are eating right.
Connects you with friends and co-workers, so you can reach your goals together or see how you measure up on the team leader-boards.
LED display indicates time and progress towards your goals.
Up to a 6 month battery life (Watch Batter)
Employee Wellness will also be using Jawbone's UP for Groups platform to create quarterly walking challenges specific to the University. This platform captures the spirit of teamwork and benefits of group dynamics. It creates a true sense of competition among those who are in the challenges and allows for a support system to be created.
This is an exciting wellness initiative that is being brought to the University! Stay tuned for more information!
