You’ve recognized that employee health is vital to keeping productivity high and insurance costs low. To help your employees improve their health, you’ve chosen to invest in a corporate wellness program. But since implementing the program, you haven’t seen the results you were hoping for. Stressed out and unhappy, your employees appear to be eating as much junk food and taking as many smoke breaks as ever. What could have gone wrong?
The fact is, when it comes to employee wellness programs, your wellness ROI is going to reflect the effort that your organization puts into your program. While your wellness program gives you the framework and the tools you need for change, it’s still up to your organization to utilize those tools in ways that support and motivate your employees.
