So, what’s all the buzz around employee wellbeing programs? It seems like everybody is jumping on board the wellness train – and for good reason. A quick look at a recent study by SHRM, the Society for Human Resource Management, shows 70% of US employers are currently offering a general wellness program (up from 58% in 2008) and these companies indicate 25% lower obesity rates than companies without effective strategies, roughly half the rate of diabetes/ high-glucose risk, and nearly 1 less day of unplanned absences. Employee wellbeing programs not only improve employee health and wellness, but successful wellness programs will provide a boost to ROI with reduced healthcare costs, improved moral, and increased productivity.
Successful wellness programs do not flourish on their own, however, and the key is strong employee engagement. After all, how are employees supposed to reap the benefits of a program they are not participating in? That’s where WeAreWellness comes in!
