Daily Endorphin Wellness Challenge

The Salve Steps challenge is on. Employees are encouraged to focus on moving more on a regular basis over a five-week period. Get out and walk with friends, family and colleagues. Accumulate, log and/or sync your daily steps entries. Track your progress towards daily and weekly goals throughout the challenge. Motivate and support your colleagues to do the same.

Wellness Rewards Program

The Office of Human Resources is using the Tufts Momentum+ online wellness platform to implement the wellness rewards program.

Tufts Health Plan members can earn wellness rewards by earning credits through Momentum+. If you are not a Tufts Health Plan member, you can still use Momentum+ to reach your health and fitness goals, however only Tufts members can qualify for wellness rewards.

Wellness Resources

Wellness portal: Salve Regina uses the Tufts Momentum+ wellness platform to manage its wellness rewards program. Through Momentum+, employees have a multitude of resources at their fingertips, including nutritional counseling, smoking cessation, condition management, preventive care reminders, wellness challenges and more.

Rodgers Recreation Center: All employees have free access to the Sullivan Fitness Center in Rodgers. Employees can also attend exercise classes, including spin, Pilates and yoga.

Health Services: Located in the garden level of Miley Hall, Health Services offers periodic health-related events that are open to the entire University community. See the University calendar for upcoming events.

Local fitness centers: Salve Regina partners with the Newport Athletic Club and Bridge to Fitness for discounted rates. Inquire with their membership offices and mention that you are a Salve Regina employee.

Employee Assistance Program

If personal problems arise and outside professional advice is needed, support is available. The Employee Assistance Program (EAP), administered by Coastline, helps employees and their families handle personal concerns.

EAP can assist with:

  • Marital or family problems (aging parents, troubled children, divorce)
  • Drinking/drug abuse problems
  • Legal/financial concerns
  • Emotional distress (depression, job pressures)
  • Relationship issues

Salve Regina employees and members of their immediate families and household are eligible. Benefits end upon termination of employment.

To access the EAP, call (800) 445-1195 or visit coastlineeap.com and use the company name Salve Regina.

Supervisors who wish to have their employees use the EAP as a condition of continued employment, or who have questions about the appropriateness of the EAP in addressing performance issues, should contact the director of human resources prior to contacting the EAP.
