Walmart, Sharecare launch wellness partnership

BY David Salazar

Walmart is teaming up with digital health company Sharecare to help its employees engage and track their health and well-being. The collaboration will give Walmart associates and their families, as well as the community, access to Sharecare to help them better understand, track and improve their health, the companies said.

“Walmart is committed to helping our associates, their families, and communities to improve their overall wellbeing through wellness programs,” said Jacqui Canney, executive vice president, global people, Walmart Inc. “Partnering with Sharecare will provide our associates additional tools to inspire them on their wellness journey, help our programs continue to grow, and be a force for change in the communities we serve.”

Walmart said this partnership builds on the success of an initiative it’s undertaken for the past four years that saw thousands of its associates participate in the ZP Challenge — a series of 21-day programs that encourage and reward participation in such categories as fitness, family, food and money. Associates using ZP will have access to Sharecare and more health-and-wellness resources. The Sharecare app will highlight associates who have seen success through ZP, and Sharecare will be featured in Walmart Wellness Days, the Bentonville, Ark.-based retailer’s quarterly in-store event.

“Given the current state of health in the United States, large employers, in particular, must be willing to deliver their employees with relevant and personalized experiences, and when it comes to making good on that commitment, Walmart bears the gold standard,” said Jeff Arnold, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Sharecare. “We look forward to building on the foundation Walmart has laid for its associates by using Sharecare to amplify the improvements they are making in their lives each day and create a whole new value for the currency of good health.”
