Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
Wellabe, an online platform that pushes health and wellness engagement through game theory, was released today by UR Mobile. Created to work in tandem with existing corporate health and wellness programs or as a stand-alone product, Wellabe encourages participants to make small, healthy choices, for which they can earn rewards. Wellabe’s streamlined environment includes challenges, rewards, social networking and customization options.
Companies commonly establish wellness programs to benefit employee health, an outcome that can cut health insurance expenses and absences due to sickness, while also boosting morale. However, low participation can be a major obstacle to the success of wellness programs. Wellabe addresses this dilemma by posing small, attainable challenges to participants. “The challenges in Wellabe act as simple entry points to a wellness-oriented lifestyle,” explained Melissa Vincent, VP Business Development, UR Mobile. Incentives for employee engagement include company-determined rewards for completed challenges and peer social reinforcement through Wellabe’s online social networking component.
Companies that use Wellabe to promote wellness among employees have full administrative control over user features, group management and challenge assignments. Companies can add and fully manage challenges to align with existing wellness programs. Customization also allows promotion of internal training initiatives, certifications and other company-specific goals to employees, as well as the flexibility to promote these initiatives companywide, to specific groups of employees or to individuals. Companies have access to archiving functionality, results tracking, real-time search, competition calendaring and sponsorship options.
