Willis Group Holdings has re-launched its consumer health and wellness portal 'Winning With Willis', designed to help companies lower healthcare costs by encouraging employees to lead healthier lifestyles.

According to Willis Group, the website was launched in October 2008 as a broker-branded consumer portal. The revamped site adds new features and content, including health and wellness information from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It offers interactive tools like body mass index (BMI) calculator and monthly health challenge, using which the people can improve their health and well being, and support behavior change.

In addition, a virtual health fair is available on the website for users to access additional health websites to continue their education in healthier lifestyles.

Michael Barton, chairman of Willis human capital practice, said: “The Willis Human Capital Practice is focused on helping companies engage employees and their family members in making better decisions about nutrition and exercise. By increasing personal commitment to health and well-being, we believe we can help solve one of the greatest problems of the century – healthcare demand.”
