Most of our workforce is desk-bound, so we encourage exercise and a healthy lifestyle to reduce absenteeism, increase productivity and boost overall morale.

Preventive health

We provide employees with resources to take control of their health, including individual wellness assessments, on-site immunization and screening programs, on-site fitness and nutrition programs, and counseling and education services. We also cover annual physicals and all age-appropriate preventive screenings at no cost to employees and their families.

Wellness portal

To proactively engage our workforce about health, we offer an online wellness resource called LiveHealthyatTI.com. This site provides personalized health information and tools based on information provided by employees in their wellness assessments.

Online wellness assessment

We encourage employees and their dependents to complete a confidential Web-based health risk assessment designed to measure health and lifestyle risks. The assessment provides immediate feedback on employees' particular health risks, and includes a list of targeted health priorities, in-depth information and guidance about making healthy decisions. Participating employees, spouses or domestic partners save $120 on their annual medical benefits by completing the assessment.

Preventive screenings

We offer preventive health screenings to employees and their families. Fully covered by our medical plans, these include cancer screenings, blood-pressure checks, and a variety of other annual and periodic screenings.

In some cases, we make wellness screenings more convenient by bringing them on-site. These screenings measure blood pressure, weight, glucose levels, and cholesterol and triglyceride levels

Health advocacy

We offer a benefit advocacy service to help estimate the costs of any medical procedure under consideration, answer billing and insurance questions, and locate affordable and quality health providers.

Immunizations

Our immunization and preventive screening schedules are based on recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Practice Physicians and the U.S. Task Force for Preventive Services. Most of our health plans cover recommended immunizations at 100 percent for employees and their families.

Pandemic preparedness

TI is prepared for the possibility of pandemic disease. The toll on employees, communities and our business could be significant. As part of our pandemic preparedness plan, we have engaged physicians and nurses to prepare for a disease outbreak.

In the event of a pandemic outbreak, our plan may include communicating with employees regarding alternate work options, or medical or family leave if they cannot come to work because they or a family member are ill.
