MyWellSteps(TM) Delivers an Important Key to Healthcare Reform - Wellness Programs for Small Businesses
Date:6/3/2009

Costs of health care are going up for everyone. One of the most promising solutions is a worksite wellness program. WellSteps has adapted its best-in-class worksite wellness solution and created a stand alone program for small businesses called MyWellSteps(TM). Now employees of small businesses can participate in behavior change programs that improve employee health.

SALT LAKE CITY, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Small companies pay more for employee health care than larger companies. They must also pay for employee absenteeism, turnover, retention, and low productivity. In a small company, the absence of one unhealthy employee is disproportionately disruptive. But small companies who use wellness programs to improve employee health have several business advantages. They experience improved employee morale, improved communication among work groups, decreased absenteeism, increased employee loyalty, reduced alcohol and drug use, and lower health care costs.

MyWellSteps(TM) provides small companies with simple and cost-effective wellness programs that improve health. MyWellSteps(TM) uses web media, communications, web applications, social networking, and live webinars to engage participants in a weekly stream of behavior change programming. This program works because each week participants are guided in the process of taking small, meaningful steps that result in healthy behaviors for life. MyWellSteps(TM) programs change behavior by helping participants be more active, reach a healthy body weight, eat healthier foods, sleep better, have less stress and much more.

MyWellSteps(TM) participants can experience clinically significant improvements in blood glucose, cholesterol, pressure, and body weight in as little as six weeks. When small companies help their employees have active, healthy lives, the bottom line improves.

Steve Anderson, a small business owner from Oklahoma, states, "My most valuable assets are my employees, when I help my employees have healthier lives, I have a healthier company."

As the U.S. prepares to make changes to its health care system, the only change that will matter is helping individuals prevent diseases by engaging in healthier lifestyles. MyWellSteps(TM) is uniquely positioned to help small businesses make this change.
