Limeade Wellness Program Chosen to Serve Washington State Employees

New joint venture between Bellevue, Wash. wellness firm, Washington State Health Care Authority and Institute for Health and Productivity Management helps those who help unemployed Washington residents.

(PRWEB) November 10, 2009 -- Even in the best of times, working in a state unemployment office can be tough. And in this not-so-rosy economy, stressors are amplified. Since March 2008, statewide unemployment has nearly doubled, rising from 5.1 percent to 9.3 percent. Thanks to a new joint venture between Washington State, the Institute for Health and Productivity Management and Limeade, Inc., State employees who help support, train and provide resources for unemployed Washington residents and their families are getting some much-needed support of their own.

As part of the Healthy Worksite Initiative, Bellevue-based wellness firm Limeade will provide employees of the Washington State Employment Security Department (ESD) with online and mobile phone tools to improve their physical and emotional health. Program features include setting and tracking well-being goals, identifying health risks, finding peer support and wellness resources, and challenging co-workers: “Who wants to bike to work tomorrow?”

The joint venture has two aims. First, it seeks to measure and improve health and productivity at one of the most innovative – and high-pressure – state workplaces, the unemployment office. Second, it provides a whole-person, whole-family, whole-agency approach to health delivery, which may have broader applications in the future.

Scott Pritchard, who spearheads the Health Care Authority’s Integrated Employee Health & Productivity division, said, “Limeade brings a refreshing, adaptable approach that fits the Governor’s views: ‘healthy families lead happier, more productive lives.’ ESD staff members now have something very, very special on their hands.”

Within three days of program implementation, over 34 percent of participants had finished the integrated health, well-being and productivity assessment. This compares with an average health risk assessment completion rate of just under 14 percent among Washington State employees in 2008.

Among the key features of Limeade’s service are a proprietary 360-degree well-being, productivity and health assessment, employee challenges, incentive management, personalized connections to proven wellness resources, and dashboards to help employers gain insight into their overall health and productivity drivers.
