Wellness@Dickinson Incentive Program
The Wellness@Dickinson Incentive Program (WIP) is being offered to all full-time and part-time employees of Dickinson College. The details of the incentive reward program for 2017-2018 will been announced soon, and will include lots of exciting healthy reward options! The first two steps to qualify for the incentive this year will continue to be completion of the biometric screening and the health risk assessment. Completing these two programs is part of the requirement to qualify participants at the Engaged level of the program.
Employees are able to earn incentive* rewards through their participation in each component of our wellness programming. Your Wellness@Dickinson participation can be tracked throughout the year on the Healthy Rewards Tracking Form, and should be entered into the Wellness@Dickinson 2017-2018 Healthy Rewards Incentive reporting form at the end of the spring semester in May 2018. Details and descriptions of the WIP program requirements will be shared soon.
