ROSELAND, N.J., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ADP®, a leading provider of human capital management services, today announced that The Jackson Companies, a family-owned enterprise of golf course and campground establishments in South Carolina, has selected the ADP Vitality wellness program to help combat a top business challenge – rising healthcare costs. Designed to assist midsized companies in fostering a culture of health and wellness, the ADP Vitality wellness program will enhance The Jackson Companies' existing "Teammates Getting into Fitness" wellness initiatives.
More than two-thirds of human resources decision makers in midsized companies believe the cost of healthcare coverage will increase faster over the next three years than it has in past years, according to a recent study by the ADP Research InstituteSM. The Jackson Companies joins an expanding list of midsized organizations adopting the ADP Vitality wellness program to help address this issue.
"We're taking a proactive approach to help our employees live healthier lives as healthcare costs continue to grow," said Dennis Wade, Chief Executive Officer, The Jackson Companies. "Pairing the ADP Vitality wellness program with our existing wellness activities will help increase teammate participation by enabling them to access educational tools and resources at work, home or on the run."
The ADP Vitality wellness solution helps midsized employers with between 50 and 1,000 employees proactively manage rising healthcare costs while also helping to reduce healthcare claims and employee absenteeism. Key features of this incentive-based program include an interactive wellness portal, health risk assessments, biometric screenings and personalized wellness plans with recommended goals and activities. The program integrates with social networking sites, mobile applications and fitness technologies to give employees additional support as they pursue their wellness goals. When employees achieve plan goals, they earn points toward lowering their health plan contributions.
"The ADP Vitality wellness solution empowers employers and their employees to take greater control over their health and medical costs," said Regina Lee, Division President, ADP. "By adopting preventative strategies like health and wellness programs, midsized companies can work toward lowering health expenses as well as increasing employee morale and productivity."
