HR Question of the week
How can the new wellness vendor, Be Well Solutions, help me with my health and wellness goals?
Kent State University employees will soon have the opportunity to monitor and manage their health and wellbeing as a result of a new partnership between the university and Be Well Solutions.
Be Well Solutions will collaborate with University Health Services to bring biometric screenings to the Kent Campus. They also will hold health fairs and screenings at Kent State’s Regional Campuses. In addition to the screenings, employees will have access to a password-protected Personal Health Portal. The portal will be managed by Be Well Solutions and will offer a variety of resources, such as a health risk assessment (HRA), health and wellness information and multiple options for managing health.
For employees who participate in the health risk assessment, Be Well Solutions will offer telephone and online health coaching. Health coaches can assist individuals in addressing any concerns or risk factors that may have been discovered during their assessment or they may also help with personal wellness-related goals. Examples of this include smoking cessation, developing a 5K training plan or weight management. All full-time, benefits eligible employees will be invited to participate in the online health risk assessments and upcoming biometric screenings on all campuses.
As the Division of Human Resources prepares to roll out these services, please stay tuned for more information via e-Inside and your Kent State email.
For questions, you may contact Michelle Igleheart, Kent State wellness coordinator, at 330-672-8368 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
