CAMPUS COMMUNITY COMMUNICATION-WELLNESS PROGRAM ELIMINATION (8/13/2018)
In accordance with the FY19 budget remediation process, various programs at the university were reviewed and considered for elimination. As a result of this process, the “living WELL” employee wellness program was selected for elimination. This involves closing the Employee Health & Wellness Center, wrapping up employee wellness programming, processing the 2018 incentive payout, and eliminating both the wellness program director position and the “living WELL” portal.
All planned programing will continue through September 2018, and the current Group Lifestyle Balance Program will continue until completed.
Important information regarding the employee wellness incentives:
- Wellness cash payout for participating Staff and Non-Bargaining Unit Faculty Members:
- The payout originally scheduled for the end of December will be moved up to the end of September. The new deadline for completing required actions and submitting completed health actions into the wellness portal is September 11, 2018.
- Dayton Campus Fitness Center annual fee waiver for 2018 for participating Staff and Non-Bargaining Unit Faculty Members:
- Earned fee waivers for 2018 will be valid until April 1, 2019. Required actions to obtain fee waiver need to be completed by September 30, 2018 in order to qualify for the fee waiver for 2018. Memberships to the Fitness Center can also be purchased; please see the following Campus Recreation webpage: www.wright.edu/student-affairs/health-and-wellness/campus-recreation/fitness-center#membership
During the coming months, Human Resources will be partnering with Anthem, Horan, and College of Nursing & Health to evaluate and maintain some wellness services, such as biometric screenings. Important health plan services such as faculty and staff annual physicals and well visits continue, as will flu shots, and the onsite mammography program.
