Unfortunately, by dedicating so much time to work, he has little time to focus on his health and fitness. Like many employees, Nathan often feels stressed and overwhelmed, has a difficult time sleeping, and doesn’t take advantage of his company’s free gym membership.

Chances are, you know someone like Nathan.

As healthcare costs continue to skyrocket and employee absences take a toll on overall productivity and revenue, it’s more important than ever for employers to play an active role in employee wellness.

Fortunately, there’s Welbe, a corporate wellness platform designed to advance the health and financial well-being of people and the companies they work for.

How Welbe Works

Welbe takes a holistic approach to corporate health and fitness. The corporate wellness platform leverages wearable devices, mobile apps, and employee submitted data to track individual and company-wide well-being.

What’s more, it incentivizes a healthy lifestyle by rewarding employees for achieving their health and fitness goals. What better way to keep the doctor away?

For employers: Welbe provides employers with a wealth of data and information about the overall well-being of their organization in a real-time environment that’s in compliance with HIPPA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). Employers can create biometric reports and view data on employees’ activity levels, financial fitness, challenge activities, and nutritional health.

Employers can organize challenges, set goals and budgets, and incentivize employees to take control of their health with redeemable digital gift cards from today’s top brands, including Amazon, Target, Home Depot, Nordstrom, and Starbucks — there’s something for everyone. Additionally, leaderboards add an element of gamification to further motivate employees and make health and fitness fun and engaging.

For employees: Welbe makes it easy for employees to stay on top of their health and wellness by taking advantage of the tools they already use. Welbe syncs with fitness tools and apps, such as Fitbit, RunKeeper, and MyFitnessPal, which makes it easy to aggregate data and summarize individual well-being. Welbe allows employees to easily log their progress, join fun health challenges, and earn cash rewards for living a well-balanced life.

Pros of Welbe:

  • Promotes health and fitness in a fun and engaging way.
  • Goals met are rewarded with a digital gift card from Welbe’s top brands.
  • Syncs with fitness tools like Fitbit, MyFitnessPal, RunKeeper, and Jawbone.
