We hear of so many tragedies arising from lack of protection for mental health everywhere, much less at the workplace. This situation cuts across all classes and its importance couldn’t be dramatized all the more.
Now more than ever, employees need healthcare solutions that will enable them to face the numerous challenges of both work and personal life. With this in mind, Metro Pacific Investments Corporation’s (MPIC) mWell, the Philippines’ healthcare mega app, launches
mWell@Work– a fully loaded wellness program designed to empower employees of enterprise partners to overcome health challenges and become physically and mentally stronger. Using a holistic approach, it helps create a more productive workforce through the wide range of health and wellness features found on the mWell platform.
mWell Chairman and MPIC Chairman and CEO Manuel V. Pangilinan says, “As the number of our users continue to grow, mWell shall deliver programs and features to provide our countrymen with innovative and responsive healthcare solutions through our fully integrated health and wellness platform recognized globally.”
mWell CEO and President and MPIC Chief Finance, Risk, and Sustainability Officer Chaye Cabal-Revilla underscores the value of holistic wellness. “Health is very important in order to remain productive and provide for the needs of our families. With mWell, office workers can easily consult family doctors, specialists and even mind health experts who can help them overcome work-related stress. They can also use the app’s mWellness Score feature to track their health daily or get into fitness and nutrition programs designed by experts. All of these will help employees power through the challenges at work as they keep both their mind and body healthy.” Cabal-Revilla said.
In line with the app’s Mind Health advocacy, mWell@Work spearheaded a series of webinars in partnership with YMP Lead, a group composed of experts on professional growth and Ateneo Bulatao Center, the service and research arm of the Psychology Department of the Ateneo de Manila University. YMP Lead’s session focused on ways to stay mentally healthy while Ateneo Bulatao Center’s session was centered around steps to take when an employee is in distress. Hundreds of attendees from Metro Pacific Investments Corporation, PLDT, Smart, and MedExpress actively took part in the discussion. The mind health webinars will also be conducted for employees of PhilCare and Generali.
mWell also formed a groundbreaking partnership to make employees of the Philippine Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) winners in wellness. This is the first-ever collaboration between a Government Owned and Controlled Corporation (GOCC) and a digital health app. With mWell’s holistic approach to wellness, PAGCOR employees can now consult with over 1,000 doctors 24/7 using their health passes. They can also monitor their physical activity, step count and sleep using the mWellness Score, an exclusive daily health tracker found on the mWell app. To reward them on their way to wellness, mWell created the PAGCOR Steps Challenge, the in-app competition encourages employees to increase their step count to move up the leaderboard to win exciting prizes. The mWell@Work sign-up event was held in PAGCOR Pasay, Manila and Tagaytay.
PAGCOR Senior Medical Officer Dr. Al S. Arriola says, “Very nice personnel from mWell, very helpful, knowledgeable. Employees and management are happy with the simultaneous booth set-up. Excited to start the steps challenge! We will refer mWell to other PAGCOR company partners.”
mWell is also the official health and wellness partner of Delegate CX (DCX PH Inc.), a company composed of highly trained global talent specializing in providing Promotional industry service to clients in the US. Using their mWell app, DCX team members can take part in the Steps Challenge, spread good vibes, and inspire their colleagues to get moving towards a healthier lifestyle.
“One of our biggest priorities at DCX is the health and well-being of our team members and to provide them with the resources and encouragement to improve their physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. Our partnership with mWell offers our team with a healthcare and education resource and an activity tracking tool to accomplish their wellness goals. We’ve seen increased enthusiasm and participation with our physical activity challenges and are excited by the commitment our team is making to live a healthier lifestyle,” said DCX Executive Vice President Retention and Culture Brad Penman.
To fully support the healthcare needs of enterprise partner employees, mWell offers customizable and stackable health plans which include doctor and mind health consultations, accident insurance, emergency room coverages and more. For as low as P2499 per year, employees and their dependents without HMO coverages can avail of health packages, providing them security and peace of mind.
