Many employers say they want a culture of health. Riverside Healthcare is one that is achieving that culture through its employee wellness program, Riverside Employees Actively Choosing Health, or REACH.
REACH focuses on holistic well-being rather than just physical health. Along with health risk assessments and annual wellness labs, employees can also access programs centered around emotional health, financial wellness and work-life balance through REACH. By creating an easily personalized, broad program that could be accessible to any employee, Riverside believed that the employees, the organization itself and the senior citizens Riverside serves could benefit.
The health care system has seen impressive use of its wellness program. In 2017, 69 percent of benefits eligible employees and 88 percent of insured employees completed REACH’s requirements
