With an average of over 10 years’ experience, the sales force at TSC is considered one of the most relied upon in the automotive industry.

Challenge
Terminal Supply Company, like many companies in the United States, was facing a continual yearly increase in health insurance rates. TSC’s insurance rates had increased by 35%, making health insurance a major cost within the company. The large rate increase inspired TSC to take action and tackle their rising cost of health insurance. TSC suspected a variety of health conditions among its employees was driving the costly increases in insurance rates. TSC recognized the value and the need to partner with employees to foster healthier lifestyles. It had the dual goal of taking care of its employees while reducing the cost of health insurance.

CovattaExperience
Terminal Supply Company’s first step in reducing insurance costs and supporting employee wellness was to partner Wellco to evaluate the rise in health insurance rates and develop a prevention strategy. A key component of Wellco’s system was providing HealthHammer scorecards for all interested employees and a data dashboard for leadership.  Wellco implemented systems to track avoidable health conditions, measure avoidable medical costs and integrate existing resources.   TSC also provided new initiatives such as: dodge ball teams, onsite yoga, and education on healthy eating and smoking cessation.  TSC provides dual insurance rates for participants and non-participants in Wellco’s systems.

Results
One year after consulting with Wellco and implementing its wellness systems, TSC saw its insurance rates decrease for the first time in years and continue into subsequent years. The decrease in rates benefited the company and employees as TSC was able to pass along some of the savings to its staff.  TSC believes the decrease in rates is the result of a lack of large insurance claims and an increase in employees’ awareness of their health, creating a healthier workforce. It also, recognizes the culture at TSC has improved, as its employees become healthier, they are happier, more productive, and take fewer sick days. Leadership at TSC feels working with Wellco has been rewarding.
