FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Feb. 12, 2016 - PRLog -- Covenant House Florida, (CHF), an emergency shelter and crisis counseling center for homeless and runaway youth, has "stepped up" to the emerging trend of employer sponsored worksite wellness programs prompted by a combination of healthcare reform and skyrocketing health insurance premiums.

Gress, stating, "Since we began to engage our staff in Humana Vitality in 2015, we've seen a noticeable improvement in employee moral; people generally seem to be happier and healthier"

With a little over a hundred employees working from two locations, the not for profit firms' executive management team, directors and staff committed early last year to a variety of multi-year wellness initiatives alongside  a comprehensive wellness support program built into, (and already paid for), by Covenant House Florida's medical insurance carrier, Humana. https://www.humana.com/vitality/ Using online educational assessments, preventive screenings, fitness competitions, mobile technology for tracking and encouraging healthy changes in employee behavior at work, (and at home), CHF's (http://www.covenanthousefl.org/) wellness program has measured more than 82% participation in the Humana Vitality tool since first being launched last Spring.
