Wellness programs have the potential to provide excellent returns to employers. In a recent research conducted by HealthFitness and The Connell Group participants indicated they are “likelier than non-participants to stay with their employer, refer someone to the company and be more productive.” While this type of feedback can make wellness programs highly attractive, simply creating a program does not ensure success. As with diets, poorly planned wellness programs typically fizzle out before any gains are made. An effective program has to consistently engage the workforce if employers are to expect a return on their investment.
