What is a biometric screening?

Despite its fancy names, it’s really just a mini-physical, often done at your place of employment, by a nurse or healthcare technician. The screening measures some basic physical characteristics like your height and weight, blood sugar and cholesterol levels, as well as several other health indicators.

These numbers provide an overall snapshot of your well being.

These assessments provide employers with important information that helps to shape the direction of their internal health and wellness initiatives.
