Insurers, wellness providers, and others offer questionnaires — health risk assessments (HRAs) — to guage employee health and risks. Choose an HRA that will:
- Raise awareness of health risks among individuals and spur them to make healthy lifestyle changes.
- Connect employees with services to improve health and avoid costly medical interventions.
- Guide the development of a worksite wellness program that meets the overall needs of employees.
Communicate with employees about their HRA opportunities: Assure privacy. Promote participation with incentives. Schedule timely follow-up, such as risk-related education or health coaching. Let employees know, “We care about your health.” Take a step.
