Quest Diagnostics Is Named 'Best Employer For Healthy Lifestyles'
Date:5/13/2008

Blueprint for Wellness, participants complete a comprehensive survey each year to assess the impact of lifestyle choices, such as diet, stress management, driving and exercise habits, on health quality. Unlike most corporate employee wellness programs, Blueprint for Wellness also employs diagnostic laboratory screening for diverse medical conditions. The diagnostic screenings include over 30 laboratory tests which can help your doctor identify risks or conditions which may be prevented or effectively managed, and which, over time, help participants better understand their progress toward meeting their own health goals.

Based on the results of the screening tests, biometric measurements and lifestyle survey, the company provides each participant with a confidential and personalized 20-page report that comprehensively analyzes her or his health status. The report also recommends specific healthcare and lifestyle strategies that participants can implement to lower their health risks and improve overall health. Armed with this information, HealthyQuest participants, which now total about 30,000 employees and dependents, can access the initiative's diverse educational and support programs, which are supported by hundreds of employee volunteers, to make lifestyle changes. Programs include physical fitness, weight, and stress management resources, tobacco cessation counseling, and efforts to improve the healthful quality of food choices at onsite cafeterias and vending machines.

"HealthyQuest results have been remarkable. As a company, we are beginning to see a positive return on our investment and our colleagues continue to tell us that, due to HealthyQuest, they are making important lifestyle changes. Others credit the program with anticipating major medical problems, like diabetes, and helping them to halt destructive behaviors, such as smoking," said Fred R. Williams, director, Health Benefits Management, Quest Diagnostics.
