Why Vitality Works for Employers

What Employers Achieve with Vitality

A successful health and wellness program is a great way to reduce chronic health risks for your employees and limit healthcare costs for your company. But in the sea of companies touting themselves as “wellness,” it can be hard to sift through the clutter and find that true partner who cares. Meet Vitality. We align with your company’s interests so that you can bring successful, lasting change — something few programs actually do. We use behavioral economics and actuarial science to create effective engagement strategies and compelling incentives that drive long-term behavior change and real business results.

Healthier employees, healthier profits.

Evidence shows that employee health and well-being are strong determinants of productivity, morale and retention. Healthier employees help improve business performance and profitability — and, in the case of public companies, can even boost stock prices.
