You don’t need to bust your wellness budget with elaborate incentives just to coax employees to participate in biometric screenings. If insanely high participation is what you’re after, you need to:
We’ve been misunderstood in the past as being anti-biometrics … we’re not! You can learn more about our overall position by visiting our Shocking Truths page, but the bottom line is this:
Biometric screenings can be helpful in delivering health information to employees, as well as setting a validated baseline for which to track employee health improvement over time. But biometric screenings are NOT a standalone employee wellness program. Anyone can step on a scale – but does that make them healthy? It’s what we do between measurements that makes all the difference – and that should be the focus of every corporate wellness program.
For those who want to help employees know their numbers and track health improvements over time, we offer a one-stop wellness shop – with all screening options, sign-ups, and results available in the same centralized portal as our other worksite wellness activities, social tools, challenges, and incentives.
We leverage preferred partnerships with Quest Diagnostics and BioIQ to deliver seamless screening experiences, robust reporting, and can’t-beat-it pricing. If you have your own preferred vendor (or if you have your own staff that handles screenings), we are happy to integrate data into our platform for incentive management and streamlined lifestyle coaching.

For large, centralized locations, nothing beats on-site screenings. You can offer basic finger sticks or go all-out and provide full-blown fitness evaluations. The sky’s the limit. Employees get screened at work and usually get their results immediately, blending the ultimate mix of convenience and instant gratification.
For busy employees, those who travel a lot, or geographically dispersed workers, lab-based testing saves the day. Employees use our online portal to schedule an appointment with a local lab. They just show up at the designated time and view their results online a couple weeks later.
Use screenings as a vehicle to help employees build stronger relationships with their physicians. Employees print off a simple form and bring it to their doctor’s appointment. The physician conducts the annual physical exam and faxes the results directly to our portal. Within a couple weeks, members can view their results online.
For workers who don’t come into an office, at-home test kits are dynamite. Employees simply receive a kit by mail, follow the simple instructions to self-administer a pain-free (well, ok, pain-light) finger stick test. They mail the kit back in the pre-paid envelope and then view their results online a couple weeks later.
With our hands-on implementation and coordination with the biometrics vendor, your wellness screenings go well. But then what?
