A brief description of the institution’s wellness and/or employee assistance program(s), including information to support each affirmative response above :

Wellness activities for benefits-eligible faculty and staff were available during fall 2015: Health Risk Appraisal, Biometric Screening and Tobacco Attestation Program. Completion of these three activities enabled faculty and staff covered by the university's medical plans to receive a $25 per month premium incentive during 2016. Those same activities and format were present throughout 2014 and 2015. We are focusing our program on the behaviors that most significantly impact health expense. By incenting people to engage in more healthy behaviors, health and well-being should increase and we expect that cost containment and savings will occur over time for the university and individuals. During 2014, 2015, and 2016, employees receiving the monthly premium incentive were also eligible for an additional program incentive ($100 for one or $200 for two) if they met participation guidelines in any of four categories: physical activity, weight management or nutrition, stress management, tobacco cessation. Programs were offered onsite in all four categories to help people make lifestyle changes. Program registration information and health education messages are shared via an electronic newsletter sent monthly to wellness program participants. In addition, a wellness website is continually updated to provide current program and resource information. Health and wellness resources offered by the university's health insurance plans are featured in annual enrollment print materials. Free flu shots are offered annually. The Employee Relations department offers an EAP program to meet the mental health needs of faculty and staff. CWRU's 1-2-1 Fitness Center produces a monthly wellness newsletter, free monthly activity classes, cooking demonstrations, health seminars, and walking and running clubs. Students’ well-being needs are addressed by the University Health Service, University Counseling Center, Student Affairs and related programming.
