Baylor College of Medicine is an established leader in research, health sciences education and patient care in the Texas Medical Center. Our BCM BeWell program is a reflection of this environment and serves as the overarching health and wellness resource for the College.
As a recipient of the 2016 Healthiest Employer Award by Healthiest 100 in America and one of Houston Business Journal's “Healthiest Employers” of 2015, the goal of the BCM BeWell program is to inspire and create a culture of healthy living and wellness throughout the College. With onsite, offsite, and virtual opportunities to participate in events, programs, and workshops, Baylor strives to continuously bring wellness to the forefront of our employee’s lives.
Part of Human Resources - Benefits, the BCM BeWell program partners with various wellness-related departments, such as You FIRST (employee morale), Ergonomics, Safety, and the College's gym. We also partner with external wellness-related programs through United Healthcare, Fidelity, TIAA, and more.
We encourage employees to participate in the wellness program by offering onsite events and programs, such as:
- Getaway to Good Health: A multi-year company walking challenge
- Financial Wellness Week: Featuring financial seminars and workshops
- Biometric Screenings: Our annual health screenings
- DocTalks and educational presentations
- Healthy nutritional resources
We also offer community-based participation opportunities for Baylor employees at various Houston and San Antonio events, such as the BP MS 150, Run Houston Series, and virtual employee participation with our interactive online wellness portal.
