Vebnet adds Vielife's online wellbeing solution to its offerings
David Woods, June 15, 2011
Employee benefits provider Vebnet has joined up with employee health company Vielife to allow its clients global access to an online health and wellbeing solution.
Employers using Vebnet's reward and flexible benefits technology can now offer employees a personalised, multi-language and interactive health and well-being service through Vielife Online.
The service lets employees measure and monitor their sleep, stress, nutrition and physical activity levels and encourages them to make healthier lifestyle choices, while helping employers to improve employee engagement and combat reported rises in sickness absence.
Employees start by taking an online assessment. This forms the basis of a personal report which identifies any areas of concern in their lifestyle and gives practical advice on how to address them.
The recommendations can also be tailored to help employees make the most of the benefits their employer provides. Employers can also build lifestyle communication programmes to support employee engagement and employees can regularly re-assess themselves as their lifestyles change.
Richard Morgan, director of consultancy Vebnet, said: "Our reward and flexible benefits portal is already helping employers to enhance their total employment proposition and this latest addition forms the cornerstone of creating a joined-up approach to health and wellbeing strategies.
"The benefits of a healthy workforce are obvious for all to see. Reducing stress and health risks while helping to improve employee effectiveness are key factors for success. Health and wellbeing is always high on the HR agenda."
