Fidelis Care Launches Fitness Program for Employees

EveryMove @Work Aims to Motivate Employees to Achieve Their Goals

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - April 06, 2015) - With a commitment to encouraging good health and regular physical activity for employees, Fidelis Care announces its participation in the digital fitness program EveryMove @Work.

"Our 2,500 employees are our most valuable asset, and this program gives us a fun way to help them get active or stay active," said Claudia Shoro, Vice President, Human Resources. "We believe participating in EveryMove @Work will get employees excited about everything from walking at lunch or running a 5k to taking a Zumba class."

Through EveryMove @Work, participants earn points by taking part in their favorite activities -- choosing from a list of hundreds. EveryMove @Work syncs with a wide variety of wearable fitness trackers, and activity can also be manually logged on the EveryMove @Work website or mobile app. Rewards are offered when certain points thresholds are passed.

"In piloting this program, a group of employees created an online community, sharing virtual high-fives and motivating each other to earn points," explained Shoro. "This is a great way for employees to set and reach their personal fitness goals as they support and encourage each other along the way."

Late last year, Fidelis Care introduced EveryMove as a benefit to members enrolled in its NY State of Health metal-level products. When a member reaches a certain points threshold, Fidelis Care makes a monetary donation to the Food Bank Association of New York State.

As the New York State Catholic Health Plan, Fidelis Care offers quality, affordable coverage for children and adults of all ages and at all stages of life, including products available through NY State of Health: The Official Health Plan Marketplace. With more than 1.2 million members Statewide, Fidelis Care was founded on the belief that all New Yorkers should have access to affordable, quality health insurance.
