Why is my company offering this program?
The comprehensive workplace wellness offering is an impactful benefit for all employees. In general, an employee workplace wellness program is offered for the health and well-being of employees as well as the concern about the rising cost of healthcare.
Research indicates that many serious diseases are preventable through lifestyle changes. The employee workplace wellness program is designed to reduce the risk of disease and support the adoption of healthy habits by employees who want to improve their own health and fitness levels.
At BWS, we believe that healthcare should start before you get sick. By attending the corporate biometric screening, you become aware of your numbers (i.e. cholesterol, glucose, etc.) and learn prevention strategies to reduce your risk factors for heart disease, stroke, metabolic syndrome and more.

What is an onsite Corporate Biometric Screening?
Be Well Solutions offers engaging and educational biometric screenings for corporations that assess cardiovascular risk factors and report them to participants in impactful ways to improve workplace wellness. Participants’ blood pressure, body mass index, cholesterol and glucose levels are measured by experienced medical professionals.
Participants receive their results in a Health Screening Report that details their numbers, normal ranges and lifestyle tips to help them maintain or improve their numbers. All participants attend a small group session, facilitated by a BWS physician or other Health Care Professional. Any participant can have a one-on-one session after the group session.
What is done with my information after I go through the screening?
A summary of all participant information will be included in an Aggregate Report. This allows formulation of a strategic employee wellness plan for your organization. BWS Aggregate Reporting always protects the confidentiality and privacy of each individual participant.
Who conducts Corporate Biometric Screenings?
BWS. We do not outsource our services. We provide qualified health professionals (including, but not limited to, Physicians, Nurses, Dietitians and Health Coaches) to conduct the Biometric Screening.
Do I have to fast before my biometric screening? Why?
Be Well Solutions strongly encourages you to fast before the biometric screening. For the most accurate results, it is recommended that you fast for 10-12 hours before your screening.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are diabetic, fasting is not required. Please inform your nurse the day of the screening.
What is the Health Risk Assessment?
The Health Risk Assessment (HRA) is a survey that can be completed online or on paper. The HRA will gather information about your current health status, health behaviors, participation in preventive screenings and wellness program interests. The HRA should take you under 10 minutes to complete.
