WELLNESS INCENTIVES DONE RIGHT.

Your employees are at the heart of your company’s success. Keeping them happy and healthy pumps up production, slims fatty healthcare costs and boosts office morale. The PUSH program is wellness incentives done right. It’s designed to be fair for everyone who participates and provides frequent cash incentives for reaching individualized goals. Backed by science and optimized through experience, our progress-based program focuses on the right areas of health improvement - leveraging the power of behavioral economics for results you can see.

Right Five Focus

Fitness

Getting fit changes lives. Exercising for 30-minutes a day has an enormous impact on a person’s health and wellness. It can control weight, improve sleep, help the immune system, improve mood and boost energy. All factors that lead to a healthier, happier and more productive employee. The PUSH program offers tangible incentives to give employees that extra drive to improve their scores on our proprietary fitness test. 2 out of 3 unfit participants improve their fitness with our progress-based incentive program.

High Cholesterol

A 10% decrease in total blood cholesterol levels can reduce the incidence of heart disease by as much as 30%. At PUSH, we put cholesterol in context. We show each employee how cholesterol compares to the impact of weight, fitness and blood pressure. For most, cholesterol has a smaller impact on overall health. Those with concerning cholesterol profiles can really see the impact of good diet, exercise and, if needed, medication. The PUSH program helps your high-risk employees reach desirable levels of cholesterol.

High Blood Pressure

Elevated blood pressure equals big risk. Much more risk than high blood sugar or cholesterol. For people with hypertension, almost every heart attack, stroke and case of heart failure occurring during their working age could be avoided with well-controlled blood pressure. The PUSH program not only identifies elevated blood pressure, it helps employees gain control. 80% of employees with hypertensive readings gain control of their blood pressure with our program.

Smoking

Smoking is a drag. It contributes to $97 billion in lost productivity and $96 billion in healthcare expenditures, costing employers an average of over $5,800 per adult smoker due to sick days, health problems, and low productivity. Through the PUSH program, you can motivate your employees to get on the right path to cessation. With a growing incentive balance, more and more will take up the challenge and quit each month. Over 25% of your smokers will quit and remain smoke-free with PUSH.

Weight

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 1/3 of U.S. adults are obese, which has led to over $150 billion in medical costs. Obese employees are more likely to develop costly medical issues such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke and even cancer. Part of the PUSH program is to motivate and incentivize weight loss for healthier and more confident employees. We tailor the incentives to each individual and provide modified goals based on starting weight. It’s a fair and science-based approach to weight loss. Nearly 2/3 of obese participants slim down, losing an average of seven pounds in our program.

the push score

When it comes to health and wellness, people look for a push in the right direction. But many wellness incentive programs are complex and focus on the wrong outcomes. This can actually lead to over-screening and increased costs. At PUSH, we make it simple.

We focus on five measures that are meaningful, measurable and modifiable. The Right Five areas--weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, smoking and fitness--determine an employee's PUSH Score. This score is a validated point system that's unique to each employee and scientifically reflects their risk for future health issues. It's a unique wellness formula that's easy-to-understand, individualized and rooted in science.

meaningful

Improvements in the Right Five areas produce meaningful results for your company, your employees and their families. These measures affect current production and future health. From lowering healthcare costs and increasing productivity to reducing disability and preventing premature death, the PUSH Score comprises measures that have a meaningful impact on the wellbeing of your organization and its valued employees.

measurable

Both you and your employees want to see a return on investment. The PUSH program is all about measurable and verifiable results. Our PUSH Score incorporates only metrics that can be objectively tested to accurately assess improvement. This includes a proprietary fitness test that is fun, challenging and can be performed by almost anybody.

modifiable

Every person is unique, especially when it comes to health and wellness. The PUSH program includes only measures that employees have the ability to modify through behavior change. It puts them in control of achieving their goals. And if for any reason improvement in a certain area is unreasonable or inadvisable, PUSH offers reasonable alternatives to ensure fairness.
