Overview

Our Publicis Connection (PBC) Healthy Living Program rewards you for taking small steps that help you live a happier, healthier life. As you continue to take care of yourself, we will too. Our focus is helping you protect what is most important — your health and wellness. That’s why we’re offering up to $300 healthy rewards this year to support you on your wellness journey. The program also provides customized information, tools and support based on your reported interests, health risks, and readiness for change. See below for more details.

Eligibility

All active benefits-eligible employees are eligible to participate in Publicis Benefits Connection Healthy Living. In addition, spouses, opposite- or same-gender domestic partners, and opposite- or same-gender civil union partners are eligible to participate if they are enrolled in a Publicis Connection medical plan. Both the employee and eligible spouse/domestic partner/civil union partner are eligible to earn program incentives. An employee must be actively employed at the time of payout.

Program Features

Personal Health Assessment (PHA)

The confidential PHA screening tool helps provide insight into your individual health risks and major conditions. It takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete and, when you’re done, provides recommendations customized to your health needs, including:

  • A personal health record
  • Secure messaging and targeted reminders
  • Lifestyle improvement programs
  • Clinically reviewed health information references for any health or medical question
  • Decision support for understanding the risks and benefits of medical procedures and treatment options

Once you’ve completed the PHA, you may receive directions for scheduling WebMD health coaching sessions, depending on your health risk level. WebMD Coaches are health experts trained to engage in one-on-one conversations to support participants in improving their health. Coaching can consist of phone calls, emails, and/or self-reported weekly activities via the WebMD Digital Health Assistant.

Healthy Activities

If you earn 60 Healthy Activity Reward Points by October 26, 2021, you can earn an additional $175 in cash rewards. For details on how to earn the Healthy Activities Reward, please review the PBC Healthy Living Flyer or log in to the PBC Healthy Living website powered by WebMD.

The program helps you take steps — even small ones — to being your healthiest, and provides rewards for some of the healthy activities you complete.
