Employee Wellness Program Proposal
According to U.S. News & World Report
According to 2014 Princeton Review
Oklahoma State University
Become one of the nation's top-20
public universities
To provide talent for the new economy by recruiting and retaining outstanding students and
and providing an exceptional educational experience grounded in engagement;
One way to recruit and retain outstanding staff is to offer an employee wellness program that not many other universities have.
To serve the public good by focusing on emphasis areas that address some of the great challenges of the 21st century — national priorities such as
, energy, transportation and sustainable environment.
One of the top national priorities of the 21st century is improve the health of our nation. Through an employee wellness program Clemson University will be paving an example for other universities to follow.

Affordable Care Act
The final regulations of the Affordable Care Act under a health-contingent wellness program offered with a group health plan allows a 20-30% reward of the cost of coverage and further increases the maximum allowed reward to 50% if the wellness program includes prevention and reduction of tobacco use
What is a Health Contingent Wellness Program?
A program that imposes a premium surcharge based on tobacco use
A program that uses a biometric screening or a health risk assessment to identify employees with specified medical conditions or risk factors
The program then provides a reward to employees identified at low risk for certain medical conditions
And requires employees who are identified as at risk to take additional steps (such as meeting with a health coach, taking a health or fitness course, etc.)
Rules to follow to avoid violating discrimination rules
Employees who are eligible must have the opportunity to qualify for the reward at least once a year.
The reward may not exceed 30% of the total cost (whether paid by the employee or the employer) of employee-only coverage under the employer’s health-care plan. For smoking cessation programs, the reward may not exceed 50% of the total cost. (Wellness programs that allow dependents to participate may offer a reward based on the cost of family coverage.)
The program must be reasonably designed to promote health or prevent disease, meaning it has a reasonable chance of achieving those results in people who participate
The full reward offered under the program must be available to all similarly situated employees.
Includes both activity-based wellness programs and outcome-based wellness programs

Guide to a Clemson Wellness Program
Based on results of assessments plan a wellness program that fits our employees and university
Figure out the budget of a future program
Third party vendor? Wellness Coordinator?
How do we plan on implementing the program?
How are we going to get people to participate?
Have buy-in from senior leadership in the program and have them help market and support it
Begin to implement the program that you have planned
Be ready for speed bumps and problems that may come up
Know that you might need to change the program based on participation and reactions to it
Look back at how the program went and adapt from there
Look at the employees health and see if improvements were made
Look also at the business aspect
What was your ROI?
Have healthcare costs decreased?
Promote why a employee wellness program should be put into place
Show how it would benefit the university
Look at what other universities have done and what has been effective
Identify roles that certain partners should take to make this happen
Survey employees
Do they know what is already available to them?
Would they participate in a wellness program?
What would they look for in a wellness program?
Look at health statistics now
How healthy are our employees?
How many sick days do they already take?
What type of health premiums are we currently paying?

Facts from CDC
One study shows that obesity alone costs employers around $2,500 per employee per year
In 2008, a study of 192 companies showed that after a year of implementing a wellness program, 7 out of 10 risk factors had improved causing medical savings of 59% and productivity gains of 41%
A 2010 study showed that the ROI for businesses can be $3.27 for every $1 invested
In the same study costs from absenteeism fell by about $2.73 for every $1 invested
