Employee Wellness Program

Southwestern has partnered with Navigate Wellbeing Solutions to create the SU Wellness Program for employees, an app-based program that makes it fun and easy to take good care of ourselves. 

Get Started Today

SU Wellness focuses on 8 Pillars of Wellbeing

Balance, Community, Financial, Mindfulness, Nutrition, Physical, Purpose, and Social

The program offers a one-stop shop of tools and technology to provide support across each of the pillars, including:

  • Resources to support growth in all parts of life that make people healthy, happy, and whole
  • Content, challenges, and guidance in any area of wellbeing
  • The ability to review program progress, participate in group challenges, and access information resources

Key Highlights

Earn rewards

You can earn rewards for your participation! Use the tracking table on the SU Wellness home page to learn how to earn and to submit your progress. 

Learn and grow

Videos, articles, and other tools support a wide range of topics related to financial, physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.

Have fun!

Healthy living doesn’t have to be a chore. Join personal and group challenges, create your own group “snap challenges,” and share your successes on the social wall and photo gallery.

You can also sync apps and devices, find delicious healthy recipes, track your nutrition, hydration, sleep, and much more. Wherever you are on your wellbeing journey, you’ll find resources to help you get to your destination. 

For support on the go and to track your activities wherever you are, download the Navigate Wellbeing app. Available for FREE in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store!

Good to Know

The SU Wellness Program platform is an app-based program provided through Navigate. This is an enhancement to our current benefits package.

This program is HIPAA-compliant. Any protected health information entered into the program is strictly confidential. Participation tracking is done with your SU Employee ID, and only the platform admins (Peggy Freitas and Gretel Galo) and the Navigate account manager (Shannon Pratt) have access to your points to award entry into the prize drawings.

This is a voluntary program with several components. You sign up in the Navigate platform to participate in challenges (personal, campus-wide, or departmental) covering a variety of wellness issues: physical, nutrition, financial and mindfulness, nutrition, purpose, social, and community. You elect which programs to participate in, and each challenge will earn points.

There are two “periods” each semester. Completing the minimum number of points each period gives you one entry into a prize drawing.

When you reach the minimum points each period, you are entered into a drawing. If you win, you will choose from a variety of prizes at different price points: $75, $40, and $20. You need 100 points to earn an entry during the first period (7/1 – 9/30), and each additional 50 points earn an extra entry. The 2nd period (10/1 – 12/31) has a 200-point entry minimum (points roll over from the previous period), and again each additional 50 points earns an extra entry. Drawing winners will be able to choose from prizes such as yoga equipment, smoothie blenders, food scales, power banks, and SU Wellness-branded items such as water bottles, BBQ aprons, and much more.

An easy way to earn 50 points is to sign up for one of the no-cost on-campus health screenings  through Catapult at Upcoming clinics will be held in August and September. This program is also voluntary and HIPAA-compliant. The results of your screening will be reviewed with you (via telephone or video chat) with a Catapult nurse and can be sent to your Primary Care Provider.
