Wellness Programs Improve the Work Environment

Eighty-seven percent of employees say wellness programs improved their work environment, according to a survey by Virgin Pulse in collaboration with Workforce Magazine. Eighty-eight percent say that having health and wellness programs makes them consider a company to be an employer of choice. Ninety-six percent participate in wellness programs to improve their own health, making improved health a bigger motivator than financial incentives. Despite these findings, 48% of employers don’t track increased engagement and 53% don’t measure improved productivity. Forty-three percent of employers aren’t planning to take advantage of wellness incentives offered as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
The survey also reveals the following about employers:
• 52% offer services for mental health and depression management services in, which is a 14% increase over last year.
• 30% are not satisfied with measurement strategies, and many employers are not tracking key areas: 48% are not tracking enhanced engagement, and 53% don’t track improved productivity.
