Prudential Financial’s health and wellness programs and practices are featured in a new report, Driving Innovation in the Health Care Marketplace, created by the Business Roundtable. The report features both policy recommendations and submissions from 85 Business Roundtable CEOs describing the programs, policies and activities their companies have adopted to improve the quality of care and their employees’ lives. The report outlines recommendations in three major areas: pursuing health system performance transparency; strengthening incentives for consumers and providers to improve value; and aligning public and private sector efforts.

“At Prudential, the health of our employees is a top priority, and ensuring we are providing forward-thinking health care programs is a key part of our efforts,” states Chairman and CEO John Strangfeld. “Prudential offers programs and services that include an array of options and interactive tools designed to help our employees choose the best benefit plans and care providers for them and their families.”

“Since our first onsite clinic launched in 1911, Prudential has offered employees and their families’ state-of-the-art health and wellness support,” states Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Andrew Crighton. “Today, Prudential continues this tradition of excellence by delivering wellness programs through a strategy that recognizes that health has physical, emotional, social, spiritual and financial dimensions. Prioritizing the impact of organizational climate, Prudential educates leaders at all levels on the critical role they play in creating a healthy workplace.”
