The Employee Health & Wellness Program is part of the healthcare program offered to Pacific Union College employees. The goals are to improve employees’ health and vitality, provide a more pleasant work environment for all, and offer employees the opportunity to receive a 50% refund of their healthcare contributions, while reducing the healthcare costs incurred by the college. Spouses of employees are also invited, and strongly encouraged, to take advantage of the program to be eligible for awards, challenges, and drawings related to the Wellness Program.
Healthcare contributions, which fund the PUC healthcare account, are deducted from employee paychecks monthly. Employees participate in the Wellness Program that includes an annual in-person screening, an online assessment and tracking of healthy activities on a secure website.
Multiple independent studies have proven that well-organized and administered Employee Wellness programs provide a return on investment(ROI) of $1.25 to $5.00 per dollar spent on the program, resulting from improved employee health, morale, presenteeism, productivity, reduced absenteeism, reduced workers compensation claims, and appropriate use of healthcare benefits. PUC’s Wellness program has had an increasing ROI within that range for several years.
When employees complete the requirements of the Employee Wellness Program, they receive a 50% refund of their healthcare contributions twice a year (see timeline below). Requirements include these simple steps: take the annual online assessment using Wellsource’s “Personal Wellness Profile”, meet once a year with the Wellness Coordinator to complete an in-office screening of biometrics and physical fitness level, and track participation in healthy activities to accumulate 300 credits every 6-month period using the online “Health Activity Tracker.” The online assessment and activity tracker is accessed through the link above, or at wellness.puc.edu.
Single Employee contributes $50/month x 6 mos. = $300 x 50% = $150 reimbursement
Married Employee contributes $80/month x 6 mos. = $480 x 50% = $240 reimbursement
Married with dependents contributes $110/month x 6 mos.= $660 x 50% = $330 reimbursement
Please note: You must complete the annual in-office screening and online assessment (earning 75 credits) in either period 1 or 2 and within 10 to 14 months of your last screening to remain in the program.
