Your company culture makes a big difference in whether an employee stays or leaves. A good culture can improve team morale and boost productivity. By offering your employees access to a health center, you show them you care about their health and wellness. Studies show that matters to employees. Over three-quarters of workers today want their employers to facilitate a meaningful role in their healthcare, according to the 2022 Edelman Trust Barometer Special Report: Trust and Health.

Company leaders who actively promote their health center help to drive engagement and can make an impact on their team’s health, which improves savings. Leadership support can include:

  • No clock-out policies or wellness hours
  • Visit fees that are low or no cost for the employee
  • Consistent internal promotion of services, such as town halls, meetings, newsletters, provider meet and greets, health center open houses, open enrollment and new hire orientation
  • Offering incentives to employees who get a biometric screening, annual physical, comprehensive health review, behavioral health counseling, health coaching or attending a wellness webinar

When you choose a healthcare partner to work with, you want to make sure they hire a care team that aligns with your company culture, too. The care teams should build trusted relationships with your employees, inspiring and empowering them to live healthier lives. Appointment times should last 30 minutes or longer when needed, so providers and employees have time to have the necessary conversations it takes to improve health outcomes. At Marathon Health, 98% of our members are satisfied or very satisfied with Marathon Health, and we owe that to our initiative to become engrained in the culture of every company we partner with.

Marathon Health’s clients, like Beverly Ambrosio, Benefits and Wellness Manager at City of Plantation, Florida, note the importance of that alignment. “I’ve said it from the beginning, Marathon knows how to hire the right people who are the right fit. We can get [employees] to visit, but it’s the staff that keeps them coming back.”
