As part of Surdex’s employee wellness program, this time of year employees are given the opportunity to receive free flu shots and to participate in a free biometric screening. This screening involves a blood pressure check and a blood draw for 50 blood tests.
Screenings are instrumental for monitoring personal health and can facilitate early detection of potential health problems. On average, 60% of participants have at least one test that shows up outside of “normal” lab reference range. Early detection leads to early intervention, and as a result, employees enjoy a higher level of health.
For convenience, medical staff ordinarily host testing in our office. Here Human Resources Manager Deb Trautman from last year receiving her flu shot in the office. (During the outbreak, the program administrators are having employees visit a lab of their choice.)
