Introducing the Time Well Spent Wellness Calendar: A simple solution for better workplace health
Time Well Spent (TWS) is a turnkey solution aimed at creating a culture of health to help improve the health of our members. Part of 360° Health®, Time Well Spent is available for no additional cost and can provide employers with the tools they need - posters, newsletter articles and more - to inspire healthy lifestyle choices among their employees. The results: Healthier employees and healthier companies.
To help employers promote wellness content in the workplace on an ongoing basis, Anthem Blue Cross is offering a new TWS Wellness Calendar. The calendar provides a month-by-month guide to national health and wellness observances, such as American Heart Health month and National Cholesterol Education month, and related materials from TWS to share with employees. The information provided in the TWS Wellness Calendar offers employees basic, good-sense guidance, based on nationally recommended guidelines, about adopting healthier habits - habits that can help produce a healthier work force.
All of the information is conveniently packaged in a PDF document with direct links to the TWS materials and national health observance websites for every month to help educate members on important health and wellness topics.
The following are some suggestions on how to share the good health news and resources provided through TWS:
- E-mail blasts
- Company newsletter - i.e., wellness column/page
- Posters in break rooms, employee lounges and other high-visibility areas
- Payroll inserts
- Company intranet
- Handouts at benefits seminars and health fairs
- On-site fitness centers and cafeterias
To access Time Well Spent, employers should visit anthem.com/ca, select Employers, and click on Enter. Then, on the Employer portal landing page, click on the link for Time Well Spent. From here, employers can sign up for bi-monthly TWS email alerts, email reminders that can help them plan campaigns throughout the year.
Ask your sales representative for more information and a copy of the new Time Well Spent Wellness Calendar. That's Time Well Spent.
