Two years ago this month, many of us were preparing our workforce to work from home for a few weeks. If there is anything we learned over the past two years, it’s how to be flexible. We experienced a seemingly never-ending string of starts, stops, and changes related to COVID-19. We adapted our personal and professional lives, accommodated evolving demands on our time, and stepped up to keep the work on track through the ambiguity.
Employers have pivoted and flexed too. During this time, many of the employers we partner with have added new benefits, or modified existing ones, to meet their employees where they are in the new hybrid work model — at the office, at home, or both. Flexibility in where they work, how they work, and the benefits offered is now a table stake for employees.
Many companies are designing 2023 benefits programs and fitting all the pieces together to continue to meet the needs of employees. Eden Health simplifies the overly complex, often overbooked, and rigid healthcare system to deliver fast, flexible, and personalized care to employees. We’ll partner with companies to maximize employee engagement, and help identify opportunities to close gaps in care and coordinate with other health and well-being partners so that employees understand their benefits and receive the care they need when they need it.
- BA.2, the Omicron subvariant, is driving a surge of coronavirus cases in Europe. It is the most dominant version of Omicron globally and accounts for 1/3 of cases in the US. The Centers for Disease Control are monitoring BA.2.
- Some countries have already authorized a fourth COVID-19 vaccine. Pfizer and Moderna have asked the FDA to authorize a booster dose. Pfizer is asking for approval of a second booster shot (fourth dose of vaccine) for people older than 65 and Moderna is asking for authorization for those 18 and older. The FDA will meet on April 6, 2022, to discuss additional booster shots but no decision is expected to be made that day.
- Organizations should continue to encourage vaccines and boosters and monitor their workforce for any outbreaks so the appropriate measures can be taken.
