4 Star AchieveWELL Designation

Unified was recently acknowledged by the Wellness Council of Indiana for our continued efforts to improve member wellness!

“On behalf of the Wellness Council of Indiana, we would like to congratulate you on your 4 Star AchieveWELL designation! You join a group of organizations who truly value employee health and well-being.”

Unified Group has been a member of The Wellness Council of Indiana since 2014. Our team received the 3 Star in 2016.

To earn the 4 Star we had to meet the following criteria:

•Demonstrated proof of specific program(s) addressing chronic disease management issues

•Demonstrated proof that wellness initiative is focused on all dimensions of well-being and not exclusively on reducing costs

•Must have a minimum of five programmed activities for employees ongoing throughout the year

•Demonstrated evidence of community involvement

•Documentation of increased awareness toward safety, ergonomics and/or corporate risk mitigation

•Must show proof of start date of wellness initiative and have completed 24 months of continuous program activity

•Onsite evaluation conducted and the workplace wellness assessment will be the guideline for the evaluation

We at Unified have been recognized for our chronic disease management data analytics, our robust walking initiative, our commitment to healthy meetings and new employee orientation. We are continually looking for ways to promote EAP usage/availability and all areas of well-being (such as financial, social and mental).

We will be honored at the 2017 Indiana Health and Wellness Summit luncheon on October 4 in Indianapolis.
