What does a successful wellness program look like?
Consistent internal messaging + a motivating brand
Our collaborations with BP started with Prism branding the name “becoming a healthier you” within the corporate brand guidelines. BP desired a brand that was simple, warm, personal, immediate, real, colorful, appealing, substantive, sustainable and unique. They asked for practical content that was short and to the point, casual in tone and appealing to the entire family, while being innovative and visible. To meet these many “musts,” we focused on one subject at a time and tailored subsequent communications to specific audiences.
What are the results?
Participation and recognition
During early 2010: More than 25,000 BP America employees and retirees completed a Health Questionnaire. (That’s more than 80% of the eligible employees).
More than 10,000 made a Health Advisor call.
More than 21,000 enrolled in a new health option medical plan, where they must earn wellness points to remain in the plan.
By the end of 2010: More than 92% of the HealthPlus participants earned 1,000 wellness points. This was a new benchmark for the industry.
Early 2011: 90% of employees and spouses/domestic partners completed a Health Questionnaire and are enrolled in a new health option medical plan for the 2011/2012 plan year.
Early 2013: BP introduced the Million Step Challenge. It has become the most successful wellness program offered to employees.
In this program participants work to reach one-, two- and three-million step goals. It drives physical activity and has over 25,000 participants, including employees and dependents who track their steps using wireless activity trackers provided by the company at no cost.
BP was named one of the “Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles” by the National Business Group on Health at the Gold Award level in 2012 and the Platinum Award level in 2013.
BP America was named Houston's Healthiest Employer by the Houston Business Journal for 2014, marking the third consecutive year BP has made the list.
