Today’s workforce is diverse across gender, ethnicity, and ancestry. As employers, it is important that health equity and inclusion are prioritized while delivering health care programs.
The relationship between genetics, gut diversity, and the risk of chronic illnesses has been known for years. But only recently have forward-looking Benefits and Rewards leaders, given it the attention it deserves. Genes along with the community of microorganisms that live in the gut, influence our food allergies, nutrient absorption, injury proneness, and even the risk of long-term chronic illnesses!
60% of the U.S workforce suffers from more than 1 chronic illness and 40% struggle with behavioral health challenges. The current digital healthcare options for polychronic individuals are either fragmented or have common cures irrespective of their genes and ancestry.
To promote health equity and inclusion in the workplace, chronic illnesses have to be managed from the lens of deep individualization based on gut microbiome and genetics. Instead of masking and managing symptoms (an approach commonly seen with clinical treatments), solving for the root cause of chronic issues ensures that employees live long and disease-free lives.
Digbi Health simplifies this process by providing whole-person care based on individual needs and the unique biology of employees. Digbi supports people of diverse backgrounds and develops tailored plans through nutrition and lifestyle recommendations for weight management, cardio-metabolic, and digestive-mental health care.
The program is not only a one-stop solution for employees' overall well-being but is also easy for employers to integrate with their current benefits stack.
