Driving Innovation In the Health Care Marketplace:

A CEO Report

Fluor Corporation

Fluor Corporation is one of the world’s largest publicly traded engineering, procurement, construction, maintenance and project management companies. Clients depend on the expertise of our more than 40,000 employees operating globally to deliver capital projects safely, on schedule, within budget and with the quality they expect. This requires a significant investment in and reliance upon the health and well-being of our employees. 

A Shared Responsibility 

With a benefits philosophy based on “a shared responsibility by the company and the employee to invest in programs that are flexible to support both the needs of today and build a solid foundation for the future,” Fluor continues to design cost-effective and industry-competitive benefits with an innovative focus on health care delivery. We partner with industry leaders to develop programs and financial arrangements that focus on the quality of service delivery. With the recent implementation of Teladoc, our employees have an affordable and convenient telemedicine option that reduces time spent away from work and family. Fluor also partners with UnitedHealthcare to bring innovative health programs and plans to our employees. As a very early adopter of high-deductible health plans and, more recently, of a health savings account plan option, we have maintained costs below the national average for several years. 

Smart Health Consumers Equal Smarter Employee Choices 

Looking ahead to the proposed health care reform regulations, Fluor chartered a multidisciplinary taskforce in 2012 to review the legislative impact on our employees, business and clients. The result was a transparent and comprehensive communication campaign of videos, infographics, articles and online tools. Employee and town hall meetings in 2013 focused on educating our employees, emphasizing a shared accountability and illustrating the impact on our business. The resulting action encouraged Fluor employees to engage in the new Fluor Health for You wellness program designed to build “an environment where Fluor and our employees partner together to deliver their personal best through safe and healthy lives.” Offered health premium reductions as an incentive to participate in, engage with and complete programs that support physical, mental and financial health, Fluor employees are taking action across the globe to be their best at work and at home. 

Moving forward, Fluor’s established leadership and commitment to our employees will drive continued innovation and excellence in health care delivery.

The private-sector innovations in the insurance marketplace that enable us to provide these services to our employees and their families serve as models for public programs — but additional reforms are necessary.

This report highlights the innovations we have made and the public policy changes we believe would drive value by promoting health and improving outcomes.
