Long-focused on health and wellness, TELUS is ramping up its approach with a program that includes diagnostics, health coaches and technology to encourage healthy, sustainable behaviours among employees.

“The personalized medicine space needs to embrace the technology to be able to grow this area of wellness so that people can self-manage their health in a better way and it doesn’t have to be one-on-one — it can be group, it can be digital, it can be virtual,” said Elaine Chin, chief wellness officer at TELUS, who spoke at a GoodLife Fitness Health & Wellness Leadership Summit in Toronto in November.
