Encourage your employees to answer the call

February 06, 2019

​Preventive care is important to maintain a healthy workforce. Encourage your employees to participate in Call to Health and make health and well-being a priority in the workplace.

​Did you know that employees who participate in Call to Health are more likely to get their preventive exams and health screenings? Preventive care is important to maintain a healthy workforce, so encourage employees who haven’t yet registered to sign up today and begin discovering the benefits of answering the call.

Here are some other things you can do to make health and well-being a priority in your workplace:

  • Talk about Call to Health in staff meetings.
  • Allow time off for employees to get preventive exams.
  • Set a goal to beat last year’s participation; then, hold a celebration for employees when the goal is met.

You can also inspire employees by being an example. If you’re eligible, participate in Call to Health and share your successes with your team.

Remind employees that when they register and take the confidential Well-Being Assessment, they’ll receive a $50 Tango card, which can be redeemed for gift cards from vendors that offer healthy products or used to make charitable contributions. Those who keep going can earn reduced medical deductibles in 2020 and receive additional Tango cards when they reach designated levels.

*Call to Health is available to employees and their spouses with medical coverage through the Board of Pensions; it is not available to members enrolled in Triple-S, GeoBlue, or the Medicare Supplement Plan.
