Employee health and wellness highlights for 2011 included:
- Launching a new high-deductible health plan. It includes a health savings account to which TI contributes $500 per employee or $1,000 per family. Employees can use the TI contribution toward existing medical expenses or save to cover future costs, even in retirement. About 27 percent of U.S. employees enrolled in the new plan.
- Establishing a new benefits advocacy service to assist employees.
- Unveiling Color Matters, an awareness campaign designed to help employees identify healthy food options.
- Engaging with employees and offering incentives to increase the use of our activity centers.
- Monitoring potential employee exposure to radiation and sodium iodide following the March earthquake in Japan. Fortunately, levels at TI's Japanese sites never posed a health threat.
- About 79 percent of U.S. employees and their families completed wellness assessments.
- Nearly 400 employees took advantage of our new Compass health advocacy service.
- More than 5,400 employees and retirees received immunizations from on-site flu clinics at various U.S. sites.
- Nearly 600 employees participated in Walk this Way and logged about 202 miles each.
- More than 105 Your Weigh…Together participants lost an average of 9 pounds each.
- Nearly 550 employees and dependents took advantage of our Individual Health Management service. TI has seen nearly a 275 percent return on its investment in this program in terms of avoiding health care costs.
TI has several plans to help improve occupational health and employee wellness in 2012, such as:
- Launching our 12-12-12 campaign, which provides programs and tools to encourage employees to spend 12 minutes each day on a healthy or relaxing activity (e.g., exercise, yoga or reading) and/or lose 12 pounds over 12 months.
- Offering on-site biometric screening programs at U.S. sites.
- Upgrading our disability case-management software. This will improve integration between systems and automate the claim process so that it is more effective.
- Continue evaluating and integrating National Semiconductor's wellness, occupational health and time-loss management systems with TI's to improve data reporting and analysis.
