While we wait for fall and the return of cooler weather, the BMC Benefits team is turning up the heat preparing for big events. Mark your calendar for the launch of the next phase of the wellness program, financial well-being workshops, and the annual benefits enrollment period.
Wellness: We’ll launch another new phase of bWell, BMC’s wellness program, on October 1, 2019. Hint: The new phase will include many of the physical challenges you’ve come to know and many exciting, new non-physical challenges. Visit mybmcwellness.com starting October 1 to see what’s new and sign up for the new challenges.
Onsite Health Screenings: Your health is important, so you’ll want to mark your calendar and participate in free, confidential on-site biometric health screenings at BMC campuses (Houston, Austin, and Santa Clara) in October. Testing is quick and virtually painless, and you receive results within minutes. The screenings will measure total cholesterol, triglycerides, and fasting glucose (blood sugar); blood pressure, and body measurements – height, weight, and waist circumference.
When you put the measurements together, you’ll receive a surprisingly accurate picture of your risk for heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. These illnesses and health conditions are preventable with early detection, which is why knowing these numbers is so important. Watch your email in October for dates and times.
Retirement: Fidelity experts return to BMC in late fall with the next FEDTalks workshop. FEDTalks are a series of quarterly financial well-being workshops BMC hosts featuring Fidelity experts. Whatever your age or financial goals and challenges, these workshops are designed to help you get to your financially healthy place by better managing your finances, making smart financial decisions, and saving for retirement.
Benefits Enrollment: The U.S. Annual Benefits Enrollment will run from November 4 to November 15. Annual Benefits Enrollment is your once-a-year opportunity to review your benefits and make any changes you need.
