Welcome Slate Readers!
Please enjoy your visit to our site, “follow” it, and share it. The best example of a wellness story is how the city of Boise got completely snookered by Wellsteps. Wellsteps harmed their employees but obfuscated the data so the Boise administrators wouldn’t notice. Then they got some friends of theirs to give them an award for it. We can’t make this stuff up.
If you have a story to tell, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org . There are journalists-in-waiting, who want a story, even a not-for-attribution story, in order to write one of their own.
Also, see if your own vendor is listed (via the “search” function) and forward it to HR, with the suggestion that we can help them if they were snookered. Your HR department should demand that your wellness vendor endorse the Employee Health Program Code of Conduct, which commits them to not harming you, respecting your dignity, and not lying to your HR department. A very modest threshold and yet United Health Care’s program, among others, refuses to commit to it.
Finally and most importantly, visit www.quizzify.com . That is the way real wellness works. You play a game and learn things about the healthcare system and your own health that you didn’t know. Imagine Jeopardy-meets-health education-meets-Comedy Central.
Don’t just take our word for it. Play the game, and send it to your HR department. It’s guaranteed to improve health and save money, and as you can see, the content is reviewed by Harvard Medical School.
