Envision2bWell®, a digital health and wellness company, was named a Top 10 Employee Wellness Solution Provider by HR Tech Outlook in their September issue. The company and its CEO and Founder, Tammy Williams, are honored to be featured on the cover of the issue, as well as the featured article within the issue. The issue was released on August 30, 2021 and can be accessed here.
A featured quote in the article, "Social determinants of health and wellness impact up to 80% of health outcomes. We cannot effectively help people get well unless we address them,” sums up part of what differentiates Envision2bWell from its competition. The article goes on to explain Envision2bWell's proprietary assessment tool which provides crucial insights on the particular social determinants of health impacting a company's workforce. These insights enable employers to meet their employees where they are.
Even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the problems of chronic disease, work-related stress and employee disengagement was a substantial burden on businesses. Employee poor health cost employers $575B in 2019 and 1.5 million days of lost productivity. The estimated cost associated with presenteeism due to poor employee health is at least 2-3x greater than direct health care expenses. Presenteeism refers to the lost productivity that occurs when employees are present but not really ‘there’ due to illness, injury, stress, or other conditions. Companies are seeking out better ways to engage their employees in their health and well-being.
Envision2bWell’s proprietary assessment is named the KSAA® Assessment (pronounced KISS-UH) which stands for Knowledge, Support, Access and Autonomy. These are the four foundational elements of Social Health Empowerment®. They are the bridge from the societal conditions (or social determinants of health) that hold us back to more empowered, healthier behaviors and choices. For employers who want to reduce the rising costs associated with unwell and disengaged employees, the KSAA® Assessment offers a roadmap to for increasinged engagement and satisfaction, as well as more effective wellness programs and culture.
As Williams states in the article, "An unhealthy workforce means an unhealthy company, and a healthy workforce means a healthy company. People who are well in body, mind and spirit bring so much more to the table. In order to truly tap into the potential of your employees, it is imperative to provide them with the tools to live their healthiest, most joyful life.”
