PM@Work: The NEW Wellfocused Healthy Rewards Program

WellfocusedThis past open enrollment, UPHS launched a new points-based Wellfocused Healthy Rewards Program, allowing employees to earn points year-round  for participating in activities and challenges as well as earn $150 reward by completing a Well-Being Assessment, Knowing Your Numbers and taking healthy actions.  The $150 reward is available all year long! 

This program allows you to create a personal profile, set health goals, and participate in fun and engaging challenges, all while improving your health and well-being. The challenges and activities in the program focus on all aspects of health and are designed for all employees, regardless of your health or fitness level. You can even create your own challenges to help you reach your own personal goals – and earn points while doing so! 

How the Points System Works

For each activity, challenge, or action you complete, you earn points.  As you accumulate more points, you move to higher levels of the program and get the opportunity to be entered into raffles to win rewards!

  • First Steps: Earn 300 points by taking the Well-Being Assessment and Know Your Numbers
  • Jog Forward: Earn up to 1,200 points in this level by having healthy numbers, participating in challenges and activities and setting and tracking your own personal goals. Earn your $150 reward at this level!
  • Sprint Ahead: Reach this level by accumulating 3,000 points by participating in challenges and activities and setting and tracking your own personal goals! You will be entered into quarterly raffles to win prizes!
  • Lead the Way: Accumulate a total of 6,000 points throughout the program and you are well on your way to leading a healthy life!  You will also be entered into a raffle to participate in a leadership event!

Every quarter there will be new and exciting challenges for all employees to join and participate in! Look for more information in upcoming issues. For more information, visit  and log in by clicking on “Healthy Rewards.”
