Our employees are our most valuable asset and we recognize employee well-being as a critical part of our safety program. We are dedicated to continuously improving health and wellness practices at Williams. We offer comprehensive programs and services — including robust medical plan benefits, disease management programs and wellness coaching — to support the health and wellness of employees during and after work. These benefits are available to all full-time and most part-time employees, regardless of location.
As a key component of our employee total rewards program, the Williams Way to Wellness Program promotes well-being and long-term health by rewarding employees and their eligible spouses or domestic partners for wellness-focused activities. We provide annual biometric health screenings at many Williams locations and wellness assessments at no cost to employees, with a focus on assessing overall health and early identification of any possible medical risks. Our medical plan also provides preventive screenings at no cost to plan participants, for those who are not able to attend an on-site screening. While our on-site biometric screening participation more than doubled in 2021 compared to 2020, our participation continues to be lower than pre-pandemic levels. Our commitment to this program continues to provide our employees with opportunities to make long-term behavioral changes and reward their efforts.
