Employers interested in understanding risks based on key indicators for diseases such as diabetes, metabolic syndrome, hypertension and high cholesterol, can partner with ARHS Employee Wellness to provide outcomes reporting from annual or bi-annual health screens. During the biometric health screening, employees receive a resting blood pressure assessment, height and weight measurement, waist circumference, body composition (body fat percentage) measurement, Body Mass Index assessment, and a comprehensive lab panel. Individuals receive informational brochures and a results summary of their measurements. Employers (depending on size) receive summary of the distribution of results across the organization. Health Screening reporting is recommended for organizations who have worksite wellness programs in existence or who are thinking of implementing programming.
Many employers are recognizing the importance of creating tobacco control policies not only for the health and safety of its patrons or visitors but also their employees.
