Cigna Wellbeing Solutions makes the connection between employee health and business success
Our objective, as a company specializing in health services, is to look after people’s health and wellbeing by offering not only the best healthcare to our customers but also the best services to help people stay healthy.
At Cigna Wellbeing Solutions, our mission is to give companies the necessary tools to improve the health and wellbeing of employees, thus enhancing their value within the company.
We want to make a connection between employee health and business success, based on a diagnosis of the company's health and the implementation of a series of personalized programmes depending on the status of each company.
There has been a significant deterioration in the lifestyles of Spanish people in recent years:
- Spain tops the European table for staff absenteeism with an average of 4.8 percent, which represents 1.22% of the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
- Work-related stress affects more than one in four people in employment in Spain, which is above the European average.
- In Spain, more than 53% of adults between 25 and 60 years of age are overweight, with 14.5% of these having a Body Mass Index of more than 30, which is categorized as being obese.
- It is estimated that 50% of workers in Spain do not get enough sleep, with 30% of these suffering from insomnia problems.
- 73% of Spanish people are sedentary, and this physical inactivity represents a cost to Spain of 990 million euros because of its direct impact on cardiovascular disease, diabetes and colon and breast cancer.
This situation is associated with an increase in health-associated costs both for companies and for governments.
We at Cigna know that health and wellbeing start with healthy habits and lifestyles, since 50% of the factors that determine health are behavioural. In fact, those companies whose personnel enjoy a good level of health and wellbeing and who encourage their employees to have a healthy lifestyle are the ones with a greater capacity for growth and success because they have human resources with the ability to function at full capacity.
A balanced diet should keep an individual in an optimal state of health and enable him/her to carry out their day-to-day activities as normal. For this, it must provide the right amount of energy for the body to be able to function properly and for you to be able to follow your daily routine without any problems.
MODERATE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Moderate physical exercise is a highly recommendable option, and the potential benefits to our body are infinite. A recent study conducted by the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Gerona shows that it produces an improvement in both physical condition and mood.
GOOD STRESS MANAGEMENT
Good stress management is about detecting and preventing stress as well as the application of a range of techniques, skills and strategies for managing and avoiding stress.
Sleep and therefore rest are associated with important benefits in terms of learning and memory. Rest/sleep acts as a reset button that loosens neural connections, leaving the brain ready for future learning activities.
Cigna Wellbeing Solutions consists of a range of medically and scientifically validated elements across the spectrum.
All the components of Cigna Wellbeing Solutions have been carefully developed by a multidisciplinary team of doctors, experts in social communication, sociologists, psychologists, etc., who follow the transtheoretical model of change in order to facilitate the adoption of new habits in a sustainable manner.
Cigna Wellbeing Solutions is flexible and has a modular design so it can be adapted to the individual needs of each company. It involves three stages:
A Health Assessment is carried out for all employees during which information is collected about 13 indicators relating to lifestyle. It also includes a series of biometric questions.
Once the employee has completed the Health Assessment, he/she receives a personal report which includes an in-depth review of the employee's habits, identifying those that are the main risks. In addition, information and useful advice are provided on what to do to improve each area and prevent the development of chronic illnesses.
Using the aggregated data and in accordance with the strictest data protection policy, a report is produced on the organization’s state of health and wellbeing with a view to identifying the main factors that affect the employees in particular and the organization in general.
These reports describe the impact of health on competitiveness, productivity, staff absenteeism, job satisfaction and staff turnover for the organization analysed.
The assessment reports have the key role of providing scientific evidence as a basis for proposing recommendations to the company for the design of an implementation strategy connecting personal health with performance, absenteeism or job satisfaction.
According to the results obtained in the Company report, Cigna Wellbeing Solutions proposes a strategy for the implementation of actions and personalized programmes for each company based on the areas of risk identified.
