HR & You
In a continuing effort to promote a healthy work environment -- and to encourage healthy behaviors -- this year UPHS introduced an earned premium discount on medical contributions for non-tobacco users or for those enrolled in a tobacco cessation program. Employees were also able to earn a Healthy Reward Credit (up to $130/year) for completing a Personal Health Assessment (PHA) and for participating in Healthy Behaviors. This initiative, along with others throughout the year, reflects the commitment that UPHS has to creating a culture of health and being one of the healthiest employers in the Philadelphia area.
Over the two-week open enrollment period, nearly 12,000 employees made an active election. An Early Bird Raffle for a year of free medical benefits encouraged enrollment during the first week. The 10 lucky winners were: Kathleen Haggerty, Alison Carey, Michael Donato, Heather Redman, Adam Beach, Sarah Smith, Beverly Unger, Erin O’Brien, Suzanne Walker, and Michelle Ross.
