EngagementHealth(R) Launches Comprehensive Wellness Program with Hendrix College - 96 Percent of Hendrix Faculty and Staff Volunteer to Participate

CONWAY, Ark. and WESTCHESTER, Ill., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Hendrix College, a leading liberal arts college, and EngagementHealth LLC, an innovator in employer wellness programs, announced today the successful launch of comprehensive disease prevention and health promotion programs at Hendrix College.

All of Hendrix College's benefits eligible employees and spouses were invited to participate in the incentive based wellness programs including biometric screenings, health counseling calls, and individualized targeted risk programs. More than 96 percent of all Hendrix faculty, staff and covered spouses elected to participate in the program, a record-setting participation rate, according to EngagementHealth(R).

The program includes weekly weigh-ins and weight-challenge teams to encourage proper exercise, along with individual on-line health accounts to monitor progress in the program. Additionally, faculty and staff can choose from individualized targeted risk programs to specifically fit their needs, from exercise to smoking cessation to stress management to calorie counting. Participants are given financial discounts off their health insurance costs for participating in the program.

"Hendrix College is committed to promoting good health for its entire community of faculty and staff, and the 96 percent voluntary participation rate shows the enthusiasm and commitment of the faculty and staff at Hendrix," said Vicki Lynn, Hendrix's Associate Vice President of Business and Director of Human Resources at Hendrix College. "EngagementHealth(R) provides us a comprehensive and inclusive approach to furthering our wellness initiatives. It was important for us that their programs be available to our entire population of faculty, staff and spouses."

Ted Theophilos, CEO of EngagementHealth(R) stated: "Hendrix College is an ideal partner for EngagementHealth(R). They have a strong commitment to their community's health and we are privileged to have been selected to work with them. Colleges are not immune from the financial pressures which arise from escalating healthcare costs. Our programs are self funded. This critical feature allows us to bring comprehensive disease prevention and health promotion programs to the College without them taking on any negative budget risk."

The program is enhanced by Hendrix's new $24 million Wellness and Athletics Center, a facility that provides faculty, staff and students with state-of-the-art exercise equipment and facilities to improve health. In addition to television-mounted treadmills and elliptical machines in the weight room, the facility has an indoor aquatic center, a stationary rock-climbing wall, competition and auxiliary gymnasiums and offers numerous exercise classes to faculty, staff, students, and members of the WAC. Hendrix opened its facility in 2007.
