According 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, when employees were asked “You indicated that you are an active participant in your employer’s wellness program. Why do you participate?” employees responded as follows:

87% – To improve my general health and well-being

52% – To reduce my healthcare costs

38% – To earn rewards or incentives (eg, gifts, prizes)

22% – I want help in identifying personal health management goals and recommendations

14% – To avoid penalties for not participating

5% – I believe I am required by my employer to participate

The Economist Intelligence Unit surveyed 255 US-based senior HR executives with direct knowledge of their organization’s employee wellness program. The EIU simultaneously surveyed 630 full-time US employees of organizations that offer an employee wellness program.
