Every year, Global Connections, Inc. provides employees the opportunity to know their numbers. This year, Global paired up with health provider, CIGNA, who partnered with Healthy Solutions to bring biometric screenings to the Overland Park, Kansas and Clearwater, Florida offices.
“The screenings provide information on current health status to help employees take action to identify any potential health risks and opportunities for health improvement,” said Leslie C., Human Resources Administrator.
The comprehensive and confidential screenings consisted of a quick relatively painless finger-stick blood draw that allows for immediate measurement and results for:
- Total cholesterol
- High-density lipoprotein (good cholesterol)
- Coronary risk ratio
- Glucose level
- Blood pressure
Plus, employee’s height and weight were recorded to measure waist circumference and Body Mass Index (BMI),
Even better: employees who participated to “Know Your Numbers” received a $15 Smoothie King gift card.
While these screenings don’t diagnose health conditions or replace a physical to patient relationship, the free biometric screening is a valuable tool for staff to enhance their understanding of their health, while providing the motivation to improve.
