Tandem HR Flexes Employee Benefit Muscle by Giving Perspectives Ltd Wellness Services a Workout

CHICAGO, IL— November 10, 2009 – Perspectives Ltd, a workplace resources provider specializing in high-touch employee assistance program (EAP) and wellness services, has been hired by Tandem HR to provide wellness coaching services to its customers. Tandem, which already uses Perspectives’ EAP services, is a professional employer organization (PEO) that serves more than 100 small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) and their 4,000 employees nationwide.

“Our goal is to create an ideal, benefit-rich work environment that helps companies attract the best employees,” said Bruce Leon, President of Tandem. “By adding Perspectives’ personalized wellness services to our benefits package, we are able to further deliver on that promise while partnering with our customers to keep employees healthy and productive.”

Perspectives’ wellness coaching pairs each employee with a professional health coach for an immediate, solution-focused, preventive health consultation by telephone or Web. The coach answers employees’ general wellness questions, develops an action plan with the employee, provides on-going health coaching and assists in locating appropriate health resources. The service also includes 24/7 access to Perspectives Online wellness courses – Live Free (smoking cessation), Live Lean (weight management) and Live Fit (walking fitness).

“Tandem is a great organization to work with because it allows us to deliver services to a broader array of smaller organizations that may be the most impacted by rising health care costs,” said Bernie Dyme, President and CEO at Perspectives. “Our wellness services provide them with an opportunity to protect their employees’ health and prevent higher premiums.”

In addition to EAP and wellness coaching services, Perspectives also offers health risk assessment (HRA) services designed to improve health through disease-specific intervention and self-management. And, as part of its overall wellness offering, Perspectives works with employers to offer targeted interventions to address overall population needs.

The ultimate goal is to influence employees to change behaviors that increase risk for accident or illness.

Aside from full-service human resource solutions including benefits, payroll and a proactive approach to human resource management, Tandem clients and employees already benefit from free annual wellness screenings and customized wellness programs for the workplace. Perspectives’ EAP and wellness services add new dimension to that offering.
