Employees are the foundation of a successful company. At Alcon, we offer personalized wellness programs that make it easier to live a healthier life.
Be Healthy Initiative
Through Be Healthy, the Novartis company-wide health and well-being initiative, we help enable associates to maintain and improve their overall health, fitness and diet by focusing on four pillars of health. These include Move (exercise), Choose (healthy eating), Know (health education) and Manage (support programs). The program culminates each year in an annual Be Healthy Celebration Week that includes five days of health and well-being activities, ranging from healthy food to free health checks.
Health Incentive Programs
Alcon provides incentive-based programs that help to improve and maintain health, and that are equipped with multiple tools to better meet health goals. The programs are customizable to the needs and personal goals of each individual, and include online tools and certification programs, such as preventative screenings, disease management programs, wellness challenges, and weight loss programs. There is also an incentive program that rewards associates with points for reaching certain wellness goals, redeemable for goods such as gift certificates, electronics and live events.
