Walmart Canada and TELUS Health have announced a new strategic initiative to bring TELUS Health’s full suite of total health and wellbeing solutions to all Walmart associates in Canada.
This robust suite of health services will provide Walmart Canada associates and their families with confidential access to hundreds of health professionals from a variety of disciplines to support every step of their healthcare journey.
This enhanced offering will provide associates and their eligible dependents with a single source to access a full suite of services to improve their overall wellness, whether they need counselling on a variety of topics, including mental health, nutrition advice and more, a virtual consultation with a clinician, or want to improve their lifestyle habits through weight loss, more exercise or better eating.
“At Walmart, we support our associates. We do so in a manner that is meaningful to them and fulfills their personal and career goals. Whether it’s by supporting their physical and mental health or helping them reach their development goals; we strive to do so in an easily accessible and customizable way at a time that works for them,” said AnnMarie Mercer, Chief People Officer, Walmart Canada.
“We’re partnering with TELUS Health given their ability to provide a comprehensive wellbeing offering that is inclusive on a simple, digital platform that our associates will benefit from.”
Associates can access the TELUS Health suite of solutions in French and English 24/7 via a single smartphone app or direct telephone number. Associates will also be able to access the services in 220 other languages and dialects through specialized translation services, the first client to do so.
