To access Virgin Pulse:

When you keep engaging with the Virgin Pulse portal throughout the year and you'll have the chance to receive financial rewards! The more you interact with the system, the more points you accrue. These points are directly translated to financial rewards added to your OHIO paycheck. See the rewards image below for information about reward levels. 

As with other areas of the Healthy OHIO program, Virgin Pulse is for employees and spouses/partners who are enrolled in the OHIO medical plan. 

 

Points Become Rewards with Healthy OHIO and Virgin Pulse


Yes, it's true: engage with the Virgin Pulse portal throughout the year and earn financial rewards! Reward levels translate directly to financial rewards. Engage with Virgin Pulse and earn up to $50 quarterly. That’s up to $200 per year! The more you interact with Virgin Pulse, the easier it is to earn points. Financial rewards are added quarterly to the paycheck of the benefits-participating employee. 

Virgin Pulse Quarterly Calendar:
Quarter One = January through March
Quarter Two = April through June 
Quarter Three = July through September

Please note: it can take several weeks after each quarter for all participant data to be uploaded and sent to Human Resources for inclusion on the benefits-participating employee's paycheck. Thank you for your patience!

Tools to Thrive By Webinar Image

Introduction to Virgin Pulse : Virgin Pulse is a high-level online wellness program that includes cutting-edge technology from Virgin Pulse and an expanded array of wellness tools and information to keep you engaged and motivated 365 days a year.  During this recorded presentation from October 2018, WellWorks staff explains the Healthy OHIO program, provides a basic tutorial of the Virgin Pulse program, provides details about the Athens fall semester biometric screenings, and answers questions from participants. 

Beyond the Cash Rewards : OHIO employees who are already utilizing Virgin Pulse may be interested in the special wellness programs available through “Whil” on the Virgin Pulse platform. With engaging online programs on topics such as yoga, mindfulness and emotional intelligence, Whil can guide participants toward wellness goals that, ultimately, make them healthier, more productive employees. During this presentation recorded in November 2018, WellWorks staff explains the Healthy OHIO program, provides a basic tutorial of the Whil program, provides details about the Athens fall semester biometric screenings, and answers questions from participants.

Introduction to Whil on Virgin Pulse : While the cash rewards offered through Healthy OHIO are exciting, WellWorks wants University employees to have the tools and resources they need to actively identify and achieve their own diverse wellness goals. Virgin Pulse provides a variety of features that can empower your employees and support them in meaningful ways. During this presentation, recorded in November 2018, WellWorks staff explains the Healthy OHIO program, provides an in-depth tutorial of the lesser-known features of Virgin Pulse, and answers questions from participants.
