Employee Wellness Programs Focus on Prevention
Duke Energy offers a variety of programs to help employees achieve their personal health goals.
Live Well at Duke Energy is designed to help U.S.-based employees live healthier, longer and more productive lives. Program features include a personal wellness assessment, a comprehensive health library, a medical reference guide, and an exercise and nutrition logging system. Employees can earn credits, which are redeemable for cash or credited to their flexible spending accounts, by attending quarterly health-education seminars, getting regular checkups and completing other Live Well activities.
Live Well programs focus on topics like nutrition, stress reduction, fitness and healthy living. Approximately 6,000 employees took part in the program in 2010.
Focus on Prevention
We take the health and safety of our employees seriously — on and off the job. To encourage routine preventive care, U.S.-based employees have access to health care coverage that covers preventive care services from network providers at 100 percent. Employees also have access to free annual flu shots and a toll-free hotline staffed by experienced nurses who can assist with a wide range of health care questions and concerns.
