A Culture of Wellness

Your wellness journey is unique, and ultimately only you can decide which path to go down. But you don’t have to go alone. BeWell is here to guide and empower the Stanford community to live healthy lifestyles and create a vibrant culture of wellness. Together with our campus partners, BeWell offers services and programs that educate, empower, and inspire the pursuit of well-being — no matter your age, health status or goals. So let’s journey together toward a higher quality of life.

As we celebrate our 10th year, we’re proud to say that two-thirds of employees rate BeWell as one of Stanford’s top benefits; and 90% credit BeWell for encouraging their current healthy habits.

In 2017, depending on participation level, benefits-eligible Stanford University employees can earn up to $580 in a taxable incentive and their spouse or registered domestic partner can earn a $240 taxable incentive. In addition to monetary incentives, BeWell participants also receive discounted fitness classes, access to free Stanford athletic events, workshops, personal training sessions and additional perks!
