What does it mean to truly live your organization's values? For most, it's an aspiration rarely achieved. But for Kayla Lantgios, Benefits Specialist from Gonzaga University, it's a reality. "Cura Personalis" -- care for the whole person -- is the guiding theme of this Catholic, Jesuit school in Spokane, WA with a staff and faculty of about 3,000. The benefits team went from providing the bare minimum to now fully supporting the needs of a rural, hybrid, older workforce that struggles with MSK pain and depression/anxiety--continually in the top 3 claims costs. After partnering with Hinge Health, GU participants have seen a 52% reduction in pain, a 65% reduction in absenteeism/presenteeism, and a 63% reduction in depression/anxiety.
After completing this session, participants will be able to:
1. Articulate which employee engagement strategies deliver the best results.
2. Identify how digital benefits solutions help address health equity issues.
3. Recognize the links between pain and depression/anxiety.
