Reduce absenteeism and presenteeism

Absenteeism and presenteeism have so many causes—physical ailments, mental illness, parenting responsibilities, eldercare concerns, financial issues, etc.  LifeSpeak arms your employees with information on and practical solutions to those issues so they can address them and get their lives back on track.

We will customize your LifeSpeak platform to make this happen:

  • Select topics which drive your lost productivity, as indicated by your claims history and manager feedback
  • Highlight these topics every month and tie in relevant action items in the “Next Steps” feature
  • Devise a communication plan that promotes education in those targeted areas

One such absenteeism solution for a large public sector client drove a 19% decrease in sick day utilization, resulting in $1M in savings.

Target benefit cost drivers

Diabetes, depression, obesity… the list may differ at yours, but every company has its top medical cost drivers.

Your LifeSpeak platform will cover the issues that drive your claims, and will include elements that are typically missing or greatly lacking in traditional “physical challenge” systems or health risk assessment efforts.

Take the example of a Health Risk Assessment and Biometric Screening. Your employee gets the results, and inevitably faces the “so what now?” question. LifeSpeak comes in to answer it.  Trainings on managing diabetes, eating healthily, getting exercise despite a packed schedule are immediately accessible. Once watched, your employee is encouraged to make a calendar appointment to take the next step towards better health – see a doctor, go for a walk at lunch, stop by the market on the way home from work.

Enhance existing programs

There is no silver bullet when it comes to improving the health, productivity and effectiveness of your workforce.  You may conduct health risk assessments, have an EAP, and sponsor team walks, but you’re left with your team saying things like “So my cholesterol is high, now what?”, “I don’t want to talk to someone live about my issue”, or simply, “I hate exercising, so I’m certainly not doing that.”

LifeSpeak can fill in those gaps by answering the “so what?” or “what do I do now?” questions.  We provide starting points for people to ease into very personal challenges, so they can take the first step to changing behavior.  With our 70%+ utilization rates, we know that people find what they need with LifeSpeak.

Connect your HR programs

How do you connect the healthy eating challenge to the 5K your company is sponsoring? How do you get your people trained in workplace communication skills, from sexual harassment training to having everyday tough conversations?  How do you do it all with limited financial and human resources? LifeSpeak.

Our clients ask us time and time again to help them coordinate their efforts: incentivized challenges, training, EAP investment, etc.  We cross-promote and link to all of their vendors, all while giving their employees the knowledge they need to use those tools efficiently. We aren’t reinventing the wheel. We aren’t taking up hundreds of your IT team’s hours. We are delivering a hub at a fraction of its cost.
