Virgin Pulse Well-Being Platform
Leidos has partnered with Virgin Pulse to help support employees on their journey to health and well-being. The Virgin Pulse program is available to all benefit eligible employees and their spouse/domestic partner, if enrolled in the well-being benefit. The program supports participants on their journey to their best health and well-being. By checking in on your health and completing engaging activities and healthy habits, you will earn points toward great rewards.
Note: Incentive rewards are paid out as soon as administratively possible. The participant must be an active Leidos employee or spouse/domestic partner of an active Leidos employee on the date of the incentive payment in order to be eligible to receive such payment.
To earn points towards rewards, start by taking your annual Health Assessment, the Leidos Integrity Pledge, and review the Leidos Mission, Vision and Values – all three are required for Leidos employees to earn any incentives. Next you can navigate to the ‘How to Earn’ page to see a full list of point earning opportunities on the platform. This page will be updated throughout the year, so keep checking in for new activities that interest you.
