Vebnet Announces Partnership With vielife
Released on: June 18, 2011, 3:08 am
Standard Life Plc.
Vebnet has enhanced its employee benefits, offering to allow
global access to an online health and wellbeing solution, by partnering
with employee health solutions specialist vielife.
Employers using Vebnet's reward and flexible benefits technology can now offer
their employees a personalised, multi-language and interactive health and well-being
service through vielife Online. The service lets employees measure and monitor their
sleep, stress, nutrition and physical activity levels and encourages them to make
healthier lifestyle choices, while helping employers to improve employee engagement
and combat reported rises in sickness absence.
Employees start by taking an online assessment. This forms the basis of a personal
report which identifies any areas of concern in their lifestyle and gives practical
advice on how to address them. The recommendations can also be tailored to help
employees make the most of the benefits their employer provides. Employers can also
build lifestyle communication programmes to support employee engagement and
employees can regularly re-assess themselves as their lifestyles change.
For Vebnet, part of the Standard Life group, the
partnership with vielife provides a multi-modal health and wellness platform that is
integrated within its own global employee benefits and reward portal. Importantly, vielife Online's management reporting capabilities
can help employers pinpoint specific staff health and wellbeing issues, creating
highly targeted corporate employee health and wellbeing strategies strategies which in turn lead to greater employee engagement with Vebnet's
technology and higher solution return on investment.
Mike Beason, managing director, vielife, said: "As the population ages and
organisations downsize to cope with economic pressures, more employers will start
taking an interest in the health and wellbeing of their employees.
"Our technology provides a platform for global businesses who want to help their
workforce make healthier lifestyle choices. Wellbeing is no longer perceived by
employers as just another company perk, rather it's a highly effective channel for
increasing productivity, reducing sickness absence and improving job satisfaction."
Richard Morgan, director of consultancy, Vebnet, commented: "Our reward and
flexible benefits portal is already helping employers to enhance their total
employment proposition and this latest addition forms the cornerstone of creating a
joined up approach to health and wellbeing strategies.
"The benefits of a healthy workforce are obvious for all to see. Reducing stress
and health risks while helping to improve employee effectiveness are key factors for
success. Health and wellbeing is always high on the HR agenda. We are therefore
delighted to partner with vielife, a leading global provider, to support employers
in this important area."
