10 Ways to Jumpstart Your Corporate Wellness Program

Posted on December 22, 2020 5:36 PM

Over the last several years, corporate wellness initiatives have moved from the “nice to have” category of goals to accomplish every year to the “must-have” category. While the benefits of these programs are many, including improved employee health and productivity, one of the most compelling drivers of this trend is the positive effect they have on companies’ bottom lines.

Research from the Harvard Business Review found that, on average, employers investing in health and wellness initiatives saw $6 in healthcare savings for every $1 invested. The Rand Corporation estimates that the return on investment (ROI) for companies investing in employee wellness overall was $1.50 for every $1, while the ROI for disease management jumped to $3.80 for every $1 invested. Many health insurance providers also offer premium discounts to companies that have substantial wellness programs.

The best corporate wellness programs deliver reduced healthcare costs most often when they are well-organized and based on effective behavior change models. Motivating employees to make changes becomes even more effective when you create excitement at the launch of your wellness initiatives with the right corporate branded wellness products.
