The current issue of Fortune takes a critical look at wellness programs…and how Cummins is leading the way towards a brighter tomorrow. (Did I just say “towards a brighter tomorrow”? Maybe that’s because March is National Cliche Month.) Kudos to Cummins for actually looking at their data and acting accordingly.
This is the way wellness — or anything — should be done. Instead of just spouting cliches (do as I say, not as I do) like “75% of cost is due to chronic disease,” or “we have to incentivize people to lose weight,” you actually look at data, adjust your priorities based on the data, and repeat and refine continuously. In the rest of industry, this is called “standard.” In wellness, this is called “Cummins.”
Cummins is also — no coincidence here — well-represented on the Employee Health and Wellness Code of Conduct too.
