CG Hylton Inc. has been providing benefit plans to Calgary-based organizations for over 15 years. During that time, we have seen it all. We have seen benefit plan designs come and go. We have seen standard benefit plans that do the job just fine but that do not offer a great deal in terms of flexibility and innovation. Recently, we had the opportunity to learn more about Green Shield Canada, a company that is doing things a little bit differently with some great results!
What really caught our attention about Green Shield Canada is that they use benefits as a springboard to wellness, instead of as a reaction to illness. They want the benefits they offer to inspire significant and lasting change in the health and wellness of plan members.
Using research, science, and targeted metrics, Green Shield Canada has put together an online portal called Change4Life. Plan members can access this portal for the following tools and resources:
- Health Risk Assessments that provide a personal health score,
- Health Education modules,
- Physical activity and health trackers,
- Medication reminders, and
- Meaningful rewards for participation.
The online health portal targets behavioural change, disease prevention, and disease management. Virtually every single plan member can benefit from the tools and information offered. Healthier plan members translate to healthier employees.
Green Shield Canada has gone one step further and made it possible for the employer plan sponsors, to incorporate these same tools into onsite wellness programs and the overall organizational culture. The plans are customizable and can be tailored to suit the needs of your organization and your employees.
Benefit plans are a key ingredient in successful recruitment and retention packages but managing a great plan can be cumbersome and overwhelming for organizations where staff are stretched to the limit. With Green Shield, companies can access all the benefits without the stress or headaches that come with successfully managing a plan. CG Hylton Inc. is able to work directly with Green Shield Canada on your behalf to negotiate the best benefits for your employees and handle the daily management of the plan.
