Preventive healthcare or prophylaxis, are typically the measures taken for disease prevention, as opposed to disease treatment. “We have seen a gradual shift in the way our employees seem to be willing to make lifestyle shifts to achieve overall wellness. Many corporations now realize the importance of preventive wellness and how it is necessary to ensure a healthy tomorrow”, says Head HR of our featured client. The organization is highly dynamic in nature and has some pretty fit employees who keep the general enthusiasm about health and fitness high. How do they do that? Well, that is a combination of the zeal of the organization to keep their employees fit and OurHealthMate’s promise of “Happy and Healthy” employees. Here, is the story of how has this collaboration worked.
This Chicago, Illinois based global technology company has a worldwide presence with nearly 40 offices in 14 countries. In India, it has offices in all major cities such as - Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and Gurgaon. The company had always focused on health checkup for its employees and tried to organize health check camps or body checkup days for its employees. However, this was highly dependent on the type and kind of hospital/diagnostic center available in that area. Due to varied health aggregators and health plans, it became difficult for the organization to manage this process in a standardized manner and control the employee's health outcome which was the overall goal. “People had to be reminded at least twice about their health checkup plans or camps, and still the participation rates would be a bare minimum,” Sr. HR Manager of the tech company.
OurHealthMate (OHM) is known for its end-to-end optimum healthcare management and cost-effective solutions that are compliant with the highest levels of data security. Impressed by the clean-cut reputation, the HR team of the organization sat with OHM success champions and a personalized healthcare plan was created that would work effectively throughout the country.
After thorough research and demographic profiling of the organization, OHM came up with the following goals of the collaboration –
- Understand the people, culture and their region
- Maintain cost effectiveness without compromising with competitive benefits
- Complete body checkup of all employees within a given capsule of time
- Deliver health reports and overall analysis in a timely manner
Working with the client organization, OHM came up with a unique health package, where employees of the company could directly contact OHM team and schedule their health checkups at their preferred locations. This flexibility for the employees to avail their one annual free full-body health checkup as per their convenience resulted in markedly higher participation rates.
On the whole, the care planning was a success. The client was impressed by the outcomes delivered through the seamless process. They extended the partnership with OHM for the 2nd year to continue reaping benefits of hassle-free quality execution, super-fast delivery, 360° tech-driven approach with the secured digital platform.
OHM is currently delivering health check-up to the organization’s 900+ employees. Employees receive their health reports within five days via OHM’s secured online platform. In addition to this, a detailed delivery analysis of the health checkups is presented to the organisation's HR department at the end of the year, along with possible “call for action” measures that need to be considered to ensure overall employee wellness. The organization has noted a 44% increase in employee engagement, which was not the case during their previous operations.
OHM as the aggregator was happy to support an organization with such an extensive presence, and aligned vision. They felt accomplished to deliver on yet another successful project with better than projected metrics.
