Corporate Responsibility Report 2017-2018
- Health and Safety
SWN encourages employees to live healthy lifestyles on and off the job. We offer a complete range of employee medical benefits, and our health and well-being program – called “The Right You” – promotes well-being in four focus areas: physical health, financial health, social health and community health.
SWN employees receive a wide range of employee benefits that promote overall well-being, including high-quality health insurance, flexible work hours, an employee assistance program and educational support options.
In 2017, we added Doctor on Demand® to our health benefit offerings. Through this online application, enrolled employees can meet with a doctor any time of day or night via Skype or FaceTime, which saves on costs and eliminates time spent in doctors’ waiting rooms. Also in 2017, our Human Resources benefits team conducted extensive outreach – in group sessions and one-on-one – to ensure that employees were enrolled in the right health care plan and not overpaying for their medical care.
Through The Right You, we offer free, annual biometric and health screenings at all locations. In addition to receiving the results of the screenings, participants are given information on the impacts of unaddressed health risks and key questions to ask their doctors. The Right You also includes annual financial health education on-site – in collaboration with a major national bank – for all employees. And in 2018, we began offering one-on-one wellness coaching as part of this program.
For all work-related medical issues, employees have access to Priority Care 365, a dedicated, toll-free number through which employees can speak with a bilingual Registered Nurse 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For off-the-job urgent health issues, employees have access to similar real-time advice through a United Healthcare Nurse line.
Also, all SWN employees and their families receive a Family Safety & Health magazine with safety and health tips. The magazine includes content developed by SWN employees covering SWN-specific and local safety issues.
