Wellness Rewards Program
The wellness rewards program provides resources and activities to assist employees with improving their overall health and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Activities include talking with a nurse, enrolling in a Tufts wellness challenge or joining an on-site wellness activity hosted by the Office of Human Resources.
Human Resources uses the Tufts Health Portal to implement the wellness rewards program. As part of the program, employees must earn four credits through the Tufts Health Portal each year in order to receive the reduced rate on their health insurance the following year. To earn credits toward the reduced rate, enroll and/or log in to the Tufts Health Portal and click on "Start Living a Healthy Lifestyle."
Employees who are not Tufts Health Plan members can still use the Tufts Health Portal to reach their health and fitness goals, however only members can qualify for wellness rewards.
Virtual fitness classes: A variety of virtual fitness classes are available Monday through Friday to all Salve Regina employees. For more information, email Tasha Estrella.

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.
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.
