Christine Petersen Director of Human Resources

Having an easy-to-use, innovative, and fun wellness tool is every HR professionals dream. Our concern is for our employees – we want to make sure they have the tools and resources they need to thrive in the workplace, and oftentimes this is easier said than done. This is what attracted me to iRewardHealth; iRH offers a resource that can be used by any employer or insurance company to help incentivize employees to be healthier.

I’ve worked in HR for the past eight years and have experienced many HR challenges, usually relating to health or financial wellness, employee relations, or communication. Employees don’t feel they can use all of their vacation time because they have too much work to come back to once vacation is over; they make more money working overtime hours than if they take eight hours of vacation. They struggle with balancing investing in a 401k program or putting it into their personal savings account. iRewardHealth offers a great mix of incentives – by offering cash rewards, employees can go about their normal routines while continuing to improve on their personal baseline and earning money.

I personally love running and golfing, and these two things alone have earned me plenty of cash rewards by using the iRH app. I love going for walks on the local trails, biking the Erie Canal, and chasing my nephew around the yard. iRH has a work-hard, play-hard mentality built on a strong foundation of teamwork and communication. One of my favorite things about iRewardHealth is that everyone takes a genuine interest in one another; we celebrate birthdays, have team outings, and stick around to hear the answer to “how are you doing?” iRH’s mission of taking small, individual steps to create a lasting impact is not only how I live my personal life, but the way I hope the employees I serve choose to live their lives as well.
