(www.abenity.com), a provider of private employee perks and discount programs, announced today that it will be launching Abenity Wellness Rewards at the SHRM 2012 Annual Conference & Exposition to be held June 24-26 in Atlanta, GA. Abenity Wellness Rewards, a new incentive based employee wellness program, has been designed to help companies decrease corporate healthcare costs by encouraging positive lifestyle changes.
Abenity’s Wellness Rewards program has been custom built to provide companies with an all-in-one technology solution to promote health and wellness within their organizations. Each program is packed with educational resources, motivational tools, and positive rewards, intended to empower employees to make positive lifestyle decisions that will affect their health for the better.
“America’s workforce is truly in danger when it comes to their health, and it’s costing corporations billions of dollars annually,” said Abenity President and CEO Brian Roland. “Cardiovascular disease, obesity, high cholesterol, and other health risks are on the rise, but it’s reported that over 70% of these risks could be prevented through healthy lifestyle choices. Abenity Wellness Rewards provides a platform that enables companies to offer employee incentives to those who implement these healthy choices, and in doing so lower healthcare expenditures and create a healthier workforce.”
The Abenity Wellness Rewards program includes over 150 healthy recipes, 200 expert wellness videos, and 300 wellness tips paired with actionable steps to move individuals towards complete personal wellness. Additionally, the program provides access to Coach Jim, Abenity’s resident Wellness Coach, who offers expert insight on fitness and nutrition, as well as an integrated medical question and answer forum with Dr. Sam of America’s Family Doctors. On the whole, Abenity Wellness Rewards helps members improve all aspects of their well being, including their physical, social, and financial wellness.
Integral to Abenity Wellness Rewards is the opportunity for companies to host Challenges – virtual wellness-oriented contests paired with unique and meaningful rewards for those who participate and exceed the goal. Clients can also integrate their existing wellness programs with Wellness Rewards so that all wellness related items are centralized in one place for employees.
“The Challenges tool within Abenity Wellness Rewards is one of our most exciting features,” said Roland. “Now companies finally have the ability to manage their own incentive based contests, track results, and reward success, through one easy to use online platform.”
Abenity will demo Wellness Rewards at the SHRM 2012 Conference & Exposition, and begin rolling out the new program to existing clients on June 27th following the event. The program can integrate with Abenity’s existing Perks & Discount programs or is available ala carte starting from just $350/month.
