Triangle Background

In today’s competitive job market, it is ever so important that Wisconsin banks establish themselves as businesses that ensure every employee is set up for success — professionally and personally. As members of the Wisconsin Bankers Association (WBA), banks throughout the state are eligible to join WBA’s Employee Benefits Corporation (WBA EBC) for a wide range of benefit plans that offer employees peace of mind and incentives to save.

Through WBA EBC’s Association Health Plan (AHP) serviced by UnitedHealthcare (UHC), employees of Wisconsin banks have the ability to access competitively priced, flexible medical and vision coverage. Individuals are also able to add motivating incentive programs — such as Motion and Rally — that help inspire healthy habits and save money!

Rally, a wellness program offered through the AHP, motivates employees to meet their lifestyle goals. Alongside other individuals or at their own pace, Rally’s “missions” offer challenges that assist individuals in reaching — and surpassing — lifestyle goals, including eating healthier and increasing movement.

Employees are also able to redeem “Rally Coins” for purchases from fitness, entertainment, and well-being brands upon completion of goals. With an easy-to-use interface and motivating rewards, wellness is made more exciting and achievable for everyone.

Motion is a health savings account (HSA) offered through the WBA EBC’s AHP. The HSA incentivizes walking and meeting goals as an additional way to earn credits. Employees earn a $55 credit upon registration and every credit earned can be deposited into an HSA that assists in reducing out of pocket costs for eligible healthcare expenses. Each year, Motion participants have the ability to save up to $1,095.

Now’s the time to make certain every member of your team is reaching their full potential and saving money while doing so. WBA EBC’s AHP serviced by UHC offers wellness programs that provide great incentives to developing and sustaining good health practices and preventative care, in addition to assisting employees in saving for life’s emergencies.
