Living Well

Your personal well-being program

You work to help others. You face the demands of COVID every day, even beyond the normal pressures of your job. When you’re not working, you may be providing care for parents or children at home.

Now, you have help. Living Well, Lifespan’s new employee well-being program, will provide tools and resources to help you live well—and you can earn rewards for doing so. You earn rewards for activities that take care of your physical and emotional health each day. Whether it’s the steps you take on the job or activities you do after work, you will be rewarded for taking care of yourself.

Registration is easy, and you can learn more about the platform through virtual demonstrations and live chats during open “office hours” with our partner in this initiative, Virgin Pulse.

Through your Total Rewards for a Total You, this program is open to all benefit eligible employees, regardless of whether you are eligible for the Lifespan Benefit Plan or the IBT Benefit Plan. Employees do not need to be enrolled in benefits to participate. This program is also open to spouses enrolled in the Lifespan Health Plan.

Whil: Focus on your health and well-being

Along with the Virgin Plus wellness platform, Living Well includes a special package of in-the-moment, self-service programs to help you achieve and maintain optimum mental and emotional support through Whil. Meditation, mindfulness, guided imagery, and more are available to you when you need them most.
