What does a successful wellness communications program look like? We’ll visualize the growth of BP’s program here:
And here are some huge employee “participation” results:
During early 2010:
More than 25,000 BP America employees and retirees completed a Health Questionnaire. That’s a whopping piece of a health pie – more than 80% of eligible employees.
More than 10,000 made a Health Advisor call.
More than 21,000 enrolled in a new health option medical plan known as HealthPlus, where they must earn wellness points to remain in the plan.
By the end of 2010:
More than 92% of the HealthPlus participants earned 1000 wellness points. This is a new benchmark for the industry; outside consultants expected only around 60% would complete the 1000 point requirement in the first year.
90% of employees and spouses/domestic partners completed a Health Questionnaire and are enrolled in the HealthPlus medical option for 2011/2012 plan year.
BP is developing a culture of health. They have adopted programs that encourage everyone to become healthy. Can you influence behavioral changes in your employees? Going by the numbers, we’re heading for success.
