Accordrding to the 22-page report, “Measuring Wellness, From Data to Insights,” by The Economist Intelligence Unit, a research arm of U.K.-based Economist magazine, one-third (33%) of surveyed employees said they chose not to participate in a wellness program. Non-participants indicated they did not because they “don’t trust the employer’s motives,” (11%); or they were concerned their personal information might be used to “reduce my healthcare benefits” (15%); or “negatively affect my employment,” (16%); or because it “will not remain confidential,” (27%).

Similar levels of privacy concerns were expressed for employees who said they participate in an employer program “but not actively.”

More than half (56%) of employees indicated they’d share data with a third party “if there were credible guarantees of confidentiality,” and 66% would share data with their employers “provided that they received assurances that it would be used only for their benefit.”
