How to plan a successful workplace biometric screening & the crucial next steps organizations miss

Updated: Jul 10, 2023

Onsite employee biometric screenings play a vital role in promoting a healthy workplace environment. These screenings provide valuable insights into employees' health status, enabling early detection and prevention of potential health issues. By measuring various biometric indicators like blood pressure, cholesterol levels, body mass index, and glucose levels, employers can identify risk factors and offer timely interventions, such as wellness programs or personalized healthcare recommendations.


Biometric screenings also encourage employees to take charge of their health, fostering a proactive approach to well-being.


So what are the crucial next steps many organizations miss? It's two fold.


1) Organizations should be using the aggregated results supplied by AdvantageHealth after the screening to design and implement comprehensive wellness programs for the next 12 months that address their employees' biggest health risks.


2) Additionally, organizations should be able to offer moderate and high-risk employees (as indicated by their instant screening results) targeted behavior change programs based on their personal risk factors.


This is why AdvantageHealth has teamed up with Chef Marshall to offer employees an engaging personalized nutrition education program or health coaching (or both!).




HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS:

1) Assessment - Know Your Numbers: Onsite employee biometric screenings that includes Body Mass Index (BMI), blood pressure, cholesterol & glucose (finger-stick) with results available in under 10 minutes!


2) "Smart Nutrition" Education: We partner with Chef Marshall O'Brien, a nutritional wellness chef, to provide personalized, self-study programs for employees. Participants choose from 4 focus areas: Weight control, cholesterol, blood pressure, or glucose/Diabetes. Each program includes: 10-15 minute video, 2-page article, and a 10-recipe e-cookbook. This option allows your employees to work on the topic most important to them and at their own pace. Once selected, their selected program is emailed directly to their inbox.


3) Take Action with One-on-one Health Coaching: Participants find their "why" and set and achieve goals with one of our health coaches. Confidential coaching sessions can be done via telephone or Zoom. Many packages are available.
