Simple ways to create a healthy culture and promote health and wellness.

Interested in creating a health-centered culture for your work force?
We make it as easy as 1 - 2 - 3.

Step One: Help your employees register on their secure member site

Medica's secure member site is your employees' one-stop resource for all kinds of information to help them manage their health plan benefits. Once members register and log in, they'll be directed to resources customized to their needs and your plan offerings.

The secure site is personalized and tailored to each individual's unique health situation.

For groups based in MN, ND, SD and WI:

Step Two: Encourage employees to take the health assessment and set a well-being goal in My Health Rewards by Medica®

Encourage your employees to take their health assessment and set a well-being goal in My Health Rewards by Medica®. My Health Rewards is an online tool that will help employees take small steps to reach their health goals.

The health assessment is a confidential, short survey that will give members a snapshot of their health across seven factors, from mental health to fitness. They'll get a personalized report with recommended actions to take. Employees can go to the Health tab to take the health assessment. Research has shown that employers have a higher percentage of employees take health assessments when part of a company-sponsored promotion or activity, with a deadline for completion.

Next, employees can set a personal well-being goal. On the Profile page, scroll down to My Wellbeing Goal. Setting personal goals can boost long-term well-being. People with worthwhile goals feel happier, more satisfied with life and more effective at work.

Log in to my Health Rewards or download the Virgin Pulse app from the App Store or Google Play.

Step Three: Promote ongoing activities

Once your employees have completed their health assessments, it's time to take action and keep them engaged in health and wellness activities. We have additional activities so you can promote health and wellness throughout the year:


Driving healthy change requires simple engagement tactics and doesn't have to cost much. Test out these seven steps to success:

Step One: Capture senior level support

The first step towards creating a well workplace is to capture senior level support.

Step Two: Create a cohesive wellness team

The creation of a healthier workplace requires more than one person; it requires a group of employees, working together toward the same goal.

Step Three: Collect data to drive health efforts

Successful wellness programs collect data regularly. This data allows your wellness team to deliver interventions that are carefully researched, intricately designed, seamlessly implemented, and results oriented.

Step Four: Craft an annual operating plan

An operating plan provides the wellness team with guidance as it considers the organization's needs and priorities while articulating specific goals and objectives.

Step Five: Choose appropriate interventions

Serving as a blueprint, your operating guide will help you determine what interventions (programs) to implement at your worksite.

Step Six: Create a supportive, health-promoting environment

A comprehensive wellness program should include both behavioral and environmental interventions.

Learn simple, inexpensive changes you can make to promote wellness.

Step Seven: Evaluate outcomes

Wellness coordinators and wellness teams can determine the value of their efforts and improve on future initiatives by consistently evaluating outcomes.
