Healthy Mind Healthy Body = Zero

When I was at the UHC Customer Forum, they gave us each a report with some employee engagement metrics. We did reasonably well on the adoption of with 75.32% participation, but not so well on the measure of Healthy Mind Health Body subscribers with a big fat zero. Hmmm, I wonder if that could be because I haven't told anyone about it?

Healthy Mind Healthy Body is a unique health and wellness newsletter because subscribers can personalize the content by choosing topics of interest. It's an interesting, easy to read publication and it's free. To subscribe:
  • Go to:
  • Select UnitedHealthCare and enter your email address
  • Enter our group ID number (It's on your card.)
  • Choose how you want to receive the newsletter -- monthly by email and/or seasonal print issues
  • Choose the topics of interest to you
  • Watch for an email from uhcenews and click through the link to confirm your subscription (If you do not receive it right away, check your junk email folder.)
Honestly, I had not told anyone about this newsletter because I didn't know it existed. I discovered a lot of new things during the customer forum and I'm sure there is still more for me to uncover. UHC has 25 different websites. I was overwhelmed by the number at first, but then I started to think of UHCs offerings like our flexible work options. We have flextime, telecommuting, compressed work weeks, flexplace etc... You can't avail yourself of all the arrangements simultaneously. People need to pick and choose what fits best. And, that's what I need to do with UHC. Try to familiarize myself with what they offer and share what seems most meaningful for us.
