Through this partnership, each Arvest participant will be personality-matched with a dedicated Inspirator (health coach) at Newtopia. Individualized journeys are then tailored to each participant based on their behavior genetics, influences such as family health history, social determinants of health, readiness-to-change, and personal preferences and goals.

Inspired by the launch of the Whole Health Coaching Project, spearheaded by Heartland Whole Health Institute, Arvest has joined the efforts to leverage personalized whole health coaching to improve quality of life, health outcomes, and costs.

“We are very excited to offer this program to our associates as part of our Total Rewards package at Arvest,” said Michelle Van Schenck, Executive Director of Total Rewards at Arvest. “Wellness is multidimensional, and we want our associates to feel valued and included in every stage of life and health. Newtopia can support associates in their wellness journey, and we look forward to this partnership.”

Arvest’s Wellness Program focuses on improving health outcomes and helping associates and their families lead happier, healthier lives. Newtopia is strategically aligned with this aim.

Its philosophy of humans-helping-humans, amplified by technology, continues to generate industry-leading engagement, with 70% engagement across year one and proven medical cost savings of $1,464 per enrolled participant, as demonstrated in a randomized controlled trial sponsored and published by Aetna.

“We’re honored to help Arvest with its goal of shrinking their population’s burden and risk of chronic metabolic disease using Newtopia’s proven platform,” said Jeff Ruby, Founder and CEO of Newtopia. “We also couldn’t be happier to partner with Arvest to help propel the momentum of this important regional effort directly with employers and health systems to improve chronic health outcomes and enhance health and well-being.”

Arvest is the first bank in its four-state region of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma to offer Newtopia to its associates.
