We’ve created a culture that includes the health and financial well-being of our staff as an integral part of our people strategy. PwC has reinforced personal responsibility as a key component not only in career development, but also in terms of well-being. We want our people to be actively engaged in managing their health today and in the future. The cornerstone of our health care focus is our Physical Exam Program. It features free annual exams for staff enrolled in a PwC medical plan option through a premier preventive care provider. One outcome of this exam is a comprehensive report that can serve as the basis for our people to track and monitor their health. The program, which was implemented in 2006, also provides personalized health coaching.
We encourage our people to make health and well-being a priority. One way is through a rewards program that allows our employees to earn points for doing things that may lead to improved health, such as exercising, or undergoing routine medical screenings or exams.

In FY11, more than 19,000 of our staff participated in our Well-Being Rewards program, and we awarded more than 3.1 million points – the equivalent of $3.1 million. In FY2012, we enhanced the program to include point accumulation for responsible behaviors such as recycling and participating in volunteer activities. Since October 2011, more than 400,000 points have been awarded.
