MAKING HEALTH AND WELLNESS MORE ACCESSIBLE
In 2006, The Bama Companies was faced with double-digit healthcare cost increases. To counter this growing trend and improve the overall health and wellness of each team member and their families, Bama implemented a four-part wellness program designed to encourage employees to take an active role in their overall health and physical fitness.

SOLUTION
The Bama Companies began by opening an on-site clinic and three fitness facilities that are free and available 24 hours a day. The clinic performs annual personal health assessments for employees and all of their family members over the age of 18. The fitness centers employ three personal trainers who are available to assist, educate and guide employees in developing their personal fitness plans. Next, the topic of “back safety” was included in all new employee orientation meetings, and re-training is conducted annually. Stretching exercises are also mandated before each shift. In addition, on-site vending machines now stock lowfat, low-calorie, nutrient-dense foods and zero-calorie beverages. Healthy living campaigns (like tobacco cessation and stress management) are conducted annually. The company also worked with the Tulsa Community Foundation (TCF) to create the Bama Emergency Assistance program, known as BamaAid, which provides team members with short-term financial assistance during unexpected hardships and emergencies beyond their control, such as home catastrophes, natural disasters, personal or medical emergencies, funeral expenses, emergency travel and military deployment.

RESULTS
The results of the program have been exciting, both physically and fiscally. As of July 2011, the rise of insurance premiums has not affected Bama’s employees. Voluntary turnover is down to 7.5 percent across the entire company, resulting in a 50 percent improvement since 2008. The clinic is averaging 250 office visits and 150 chiropractic adjustments/therapy treatments per month – all at no out-of-pocket expense to the employee. The accident/total incident rate has also steadily declined – down from 6.8 in 2009 to 3.7 in 2011. Fitness center usage has also grown to include 25 percent of the employee population.
