A Culture of Wellness

BeWell Programs encourage Stanford community members to take charge of their well-being and make it an enjoyable part of life. The employee incentive program, a Stanford benefit since 2008, offers personalized support and exclusive perks for participation, including $560 in taxable incentives.  Healthy Living offerings go in-depth on diverse topics to give you a powerful set of wellness tools and skills. 

90% of employees believe BeWell enhances their work experience at Stanford, and 74% report making healthy lifestyle changes as a result of their participation.

Your first step is to sign in and take your 2020 SHALA. As you go through our programs, please be aware of requirements and deadlines so you get the most out of your experience. BeWell Programs can be completed remotely.

The BeWell incentive program begins with the SHALA.
Once you complete your SHALA, you can proceed to the Wellness Profile, Engagement or Berries.

SHALA

The gateway to our program is the Stanford Health and Lifestyle Assessment (SHALA), an online health risk assessment, designed to help you understand the impact of your current lifestyle on your overall health.

Take your SHALA before starting any other Program segments.
