As health costs escalate, employers are turning to innovative solutions such as wellness programs to mitigate employee health risks. Read our newest case study to learn how ERChealth helped The Cleveland Foundation improve their bottom line and enhance their workforce’s overall health.
Client Background: The Cleveland Foundation has approximately 93 employees. They have been a member of ERChealth, a leading provider of group health insurance, for 15 years.
Problem: The client needed a health insurance program that amplified their benefits to improve their employees’ overall health and improve costs.
Solution: Initiate support for employee health through ERChealth’s wellness program and provide risk management strategies to help reduce their average renewal by 3% annually.
“When individual employers provide health insurance as a standalone company, there really isn’t any kind of outreach or programmatic support for overall staff well-being. ERChealth actually comes with a package of services, applications, and programmatic elements that are designed to help organizations create a culture of wellness. The reduced premium cost, robust plan design, and wellness programs are major differentiators. I would highly recommend other organizations look into joining ERChealth.”
Promote a Culture of Healthy Living Through Wellness Programs
ERChealth provided The Cleveland Foundation with an array of programs and opportunities to help their employees thrive. For example, one of the programs encouraged employees to see their physicians once a year to improve their overall health and mitigate risks.
Additionally, the Be Active program encouraged employees to stay active in their daily lives. It incentivized physical activity with rewards such as Amazon gift cards. With ERChealth’s credit program, The Cleveland Foundation was able to realize savings at an average of 3% in yearly renewal costs. ERC’s HR Help Desk also provided them with a wealth of support including access to experts that provided HR guidance and the most recent hiring data.
