YMCA membership includes:

    This is a good opportunity. Is there any discussion about the possibility of the University subsidizing memberships to the YMCA and similar health promotion settings? Perhaps if employees meet certain goals (e.g., 3-4 visits per week on average), part of our membership dues are covered for us? Such an approach would likely promote general wellness, which in theory would make those individuals lower-cost members of the insurance pool. Such a commitment would certainly demonstrate that Webster is prepared to take concrete steps to promote employee wellness.

    Thanks for your feedback Eric! Yes, there are discussions along these lines within the Webster Wellness Committee. We appreciate your patience as we continue to assess, refine and grow our wellness programming and offerings and to have them mature, expand and become more incorporated into our culture over time.
