Vālenz VzReturn Offers Employers Safe Return-to-Work Solution During COVID-19 Pandemic

PHOENIX, Ariz. (May 22, 2020) – As America turns its attention to re-opening the economy and employers plan for their employees’ return to work, Vālenz™ is introducing VzReturn, a solution for protecting  workforce health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. A Valenz Care solution, this comprehensive client-centric set of services further expands the Valenz ecosystem and offers immediate value to self-insured employers.

Valenz VzReturn helps employers meet their legal obligations while also limiting potential health risks for their workforce by providing onsite temperature checks, personal protective equipment and antibody testing where available, prior to and upon their employees’ return to work. The solution also includes a variety of management tools and educational resources for Human Resources leaders and employees to improve emotional fitness and physical well-being.

According to Amy Gasbarro, Chief Operating Officer for Valenz, employers may also access Valenz Care’s personalized health coaching via multiple channels, including telephone, in-person and web chat, as well as Textcoach,™ a secure messaging platform for employees to connect with a licensed mental health counselor to address concerns such as coping, stress, depression or anxiety.

“COVID-19 has presented unprecedented economic and operational challenges for employers, especially now given the lack of consistent guidance related to safe return-to-work policies and procedures,” said Rob Gelb, Chief Executive Officer for Valenz. Gelb added that Valenz is dedicated to offering client-centric solutions like VzReturn to help clients engage early and often to mitigate employer risk while meeting employee health and safety needs during the pandemic response.

“Providing this safe return-to-work onsite solution offers a clearly defined path for employers as they reopen their businesses and resume normal operations. Additionally, with VzReturn, our clients have the tools to continually protect the workforce should employees encounter virus exposure outside the workplace, requiring additional stays of quarantine,” Gelb said. “The Valenz VzReturn solution is just one more component of our promise to support our clients in achieving smarter, better, faster healthcare.”
