What is Balance®?
Balance® is a wellness rewards program that rewards employees for taking control of their health.
By using Balance® to keep track of the small steps they take to achieve a healthier lifestyle, your employees earn points that they can redeem for a chance to win healthy rewards.
Healthy employees. Healthy workplace.
For your employees
Balance® offers your employees a variety of interactive health resources. They can complete a health risk assessment, which generates a personalized action plan that includes
- targeted education modules;
- tools to track healthy behaviours like diet, exercise and sleep; and
- reminders to take medications, eat fruits and vegetables, and more.
Every tool inside Balance® is an opportunity for your employees to earn points, which they can redeem for a chance to win prizes like gift cards, Fitbits, weekend getaways and more.
