State of New Mexico's Wellness Program
The State of New Mexico is getting ready to kick-off their second year of Wellness Screenings in 2015. These checkups are designed to help employees take control of their health.
The 2014 Checkups were an introduction to this brand new benefit. Results from this year's checkups will now be used as a baseline for which to compare future results in order to begin tracking their health. Employees who see improvement in their results from 2015 to 2016 will receive a reward for their efforts. The SONM wants to encourage participants to learn their numbers and make better choices to improve their health.
The Governor has again approved participation in this once-a-year Preventive Health Checkup to be conducted during work hours. The Governor has also approved up to thirty (30) minutes of travel time (in addition to the 45 minute Checkup on work time), if necessary to assist employees in attending nearby worksites for their Checkups.
