A new approach to workplace health: from wellness to well-being
Many employers recognize that true workplace engagement requires a new approach, one that comes from moving beyond wellness to well-being. At Cambia, well-being starts with empowering employees toward life balance—focusing on health status and risk factors, personal circumstances in life and career, and their unique needs—through the following pillars:
Community - Culture of wellbeing
Cambia’s approach to Lifelong Well-being is consumer and community focused. The consumer needs drive our product roadmap evolution. With a committed approach to capturing consumer feedback and constant analysis of market trends, we stay on point with what’s needed and direct our efforts appropriately.
At Cambia we believe in living a culture of well-being and continually making positive impacts in our community. Tangible efforts such as the philanthropic work of our Corporate Social Responsibility and Cambia Health Foundation efforts to improving the health and well-being of our communities, our partnership with the Hood to Coast relay series and supporting women and minority opportunities are examples of how Cambia helps drive and advance community well-being interests.
COVID-19 Well-being Resources
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus. The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as cough, fever, and in more severe causes, difficulty breathing. While helpful medical information on COVID-19 can be gathered at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) or from your primary care physician, our goal is to provide you with the best information to improve both your resilience and mental and physical wellbeing during this global pandemic. Please follow the links below to access our full catalogue of wellbeing best practices.
COVID-19 has dramatically altered many of our normal exercise routines. Whether it has been the temporary closure of a fitness facility, the curtailing of outdoor exercise or simply the reduction of our daily physical activity, many of us are struggling to adapt. In addition to a host of other health benefits, consistent exercise and physical activity can strengthen the immune system, improve sleep, prevent weight gain and help reduce stress and anxiety.

The COVID-19 global pandemic has not only had a dramatic effect on many people’s health and physical well-being but is also challenging the mental health and resilience of many more. In these times of uncertainty and isolation, levels of loneliness, depression, stress and other ailments are increasing at an alarming rate. Medical professionals emphasize that keeping yourself mentally fit and resilient during this pandemic is an extremely important factor for maintaining your physical health.
