Redbrick’s 2015 survey results showed a shift toward an intent to use outcome-based incentives—those that reward or penalize participants based on changes to biometric measures. Even those not currently using outcome-based incentives models showed a fairly high interest in moving in that direction. Fully 42 percent reported that they are likely to implement outcome-based incentives in the next year. When added to the 18 percent who say they already use such incentives, it suggests that well over half of programs will be using outcome-based measures to reward (or penalize) employees by 2017.
- Participation-based – 47%
- Outcomes-based – 34%
- Participation and Outcomes-based – 18%
