Many employers provide health benefits to their workers that go above and beyond the typical medical insurance. This may take the form of incentive programs for improving health, discounts on fitness centers, or employee assistance programs (EAPs) that provide various health-related services. But there’s a new star on the health horizon called LifeSpeak. This is an entire wellness platform that employers can make available to employees, giving them free, anonymous access to an enormous library of health information, discussion forums, and even live interaction with health experts on a variety of topics, including a great deal related to mental health.
