The types of wellness programs implemented by businesses over the last decade have exploded. Why? According to a recent article, upwards of $225 billion is spent per year in employee-related illnesses and injuries—that’s $1,685 per employee. In addition to cost savings, a successful employee health program can also help improve the overall wellness and morale of employees, reduce absenteeism, and boost productivity (among other benefits). To ensure they’re enticing the health needs of employees and receiving the best ROI, companies are taking advantage of comprehensive, feature-driven corporate wellness programs.
Five Features of a Sample Wellness Program In Action
A recent story revealed that a mere 24-percent of employers felt that their employees were empowered to take ownership of their health.

Here are a few key insights into what employers and employees consider attributes of the best workplace wellness programs:
