Coming Soon: New Blue Cross Virtual Well-being Program
It’s important to focus on our overall well-being to care for the things that affect our health, happiness and productivity. But sometimes it’s not that easy.
That’s about to change.
Starting in January 2019, we’re launching Blue Cross Virtual Well-Being, an added capability that features live weekly webinars and downloadable content to support well-being. The webinars will be available to all Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network group customers, their employees – and all members.
Webinars will be held twice a week — one for employers and one for members — and will be guided by a Virtual Well-Being coordinator, Matt Wozny. For employers, webinars will focus on a variety of well-being content that can be downloaded and used to create a culture of well-being in the workplace. For members, webinars and downloadable content will mirror the employer topics, including financial wellness, emotional health, physical health, social connectedness, happiness, meditation and more.
Why are we doing this? Employees with higher reported rates of well-being perform better at work, are more committed to their organization, are more willing to assist co-workers and customers, cope better with organizational change and experience less conflict with their teammates.
With Virtual Well-Being you can leverage our health and wellness expertise to support a culture of well-being, which can improve engagement and morale, attract and retain employees and reduce health care costs.
More information about Virtual Well-Being will be coming soon. If you’re in charge of employee benefits at your company, look for upcoming emails that will provide more detail and provide information about how to sign your organization up.
