STChealth Forms Strategic Alliance to Help Businesses Return to Work After COVID-19 Disruption

A strategic alliance between STChealth, Bridge Purchasing Solutions, Newmark Knight Frank and CuraLinc Healthcare has been formed to provide a national comprehensive return-to-work program for employers.

The workplace is an important intersection of individuals’ health, wellbeing, safety and productivity. This alliance works collaboratively to deliver a coordinated, effective Employer response to COVID-19, powered by an aggregate of leading healthcare, tech and commercial real estate expertise.

The Strategic Actions for Employers (SAFE) Program empowers organizations to create a culture that protects employees and enables them to do their best work in the midst of COVID-19.

The SAFE program has four fundamental components:

  1. Test and Trace powered by STChealth and Bridge: Provide employees with digital payment cards for FDA-authorized COVID-19 tests and track results and overall workplace immunity in real-time dashboards.
  2. Workplace Wellbeing powered by CuraLinc Healthcare: Help employees manage COVID-19 by providing resources for related anxiety, including family stress, worksite concerns and financial hardship to improve overall employee quality of life and ultimately, individual productivity.
  3. Culture Creation powered by Newmark Knight Frank: Turnkey executive and HR management considerations for new social standards while at work, along with step-by-step policies for reopening safely.
  4. Continuing Communications: Digital access to resources to keep the workforce protected and up-to-date on COVID-19, designed to inform while reducing fear.

The results of the SAFE program, when activating these components, will provide businesses the tools to protect and prioritize their most valuable assets: their people.
