Marianne Fazen, PhD "Many Texas employers are embracing a value-driven approach to designing their health benefits and wellness progams. Seven of these pace-setting companies are profiled in our new Compendium of Best Practices in Value-Based Benefits. Regardless where you are on the road to value, we hope that these best practices provide useful ideas that you can apply at your own company."
Marianne Fazen, PhD, TBGH President and CEO

Profiles of Pace-setting Texas Employers on the Road to Value:

CenterPoint Energy logo CenterPoint Energy, Inc.: Houston-based energy delivery company removes obstacles to early detection of cancer and chronic disease and promotes high quality, holistic care management to charge up its aging workforce
H-E-B logo H-E-B: This San Antonio-based grocer's fresh approach to wellness and prevention produces a fruitful yield: Medical costs are scaled down when employees get "Healthy at H-E-B"
City of Mesquite City of Mesquite: Faced with medical claims competing for limited tax dollars and a surge in chronic health conditions, the "Rodeo Capital of Texas" reins in medical costs by rounding up healthcare and bringing it closer to home
National Instruments logo National Instruments: This high-tech company uses an iterative approach to embed health and wellness into its culture and support the longevity and productivity of its talented, young workforce
City of Odessa logo City of Odessa: In West Texas where the mainstay meal is chicken-fried steak the size of a saddle blanket and gravy comes in an iced-tea pitcher, you have to modify the environment outside to change what goes on inside
USAA logo United Services Automobile Association: For San Antonio-based USAA, managing employee health risks pays huge dividends: healthier, more productive employees helped make 2010 one of the most successful in company history
