From lifestyle coaching to weight loss programs, 62 percent of organizations offer wellness programs, according to the Society for Human Resource Management
(SHRM) 2014 Employee Benefits Survey.
By preventing or lessening employee health conditions, organizations hope to save on long-term health care costs. However, employers and HR professionals may find it difficult to evaluate the effectiveness of wellness programs. Are the wellness programs achieving the desired results on employee health? Are the costs of the wellness program justified?
A new Effective Practice Guidelines report by the SHRM Foundation,
Evaluating Worksite Wellness: Practical Applications for Employers, answers these questions and more in a step-by-step guide.
“This report gives HR practitioners the tools they need to determine the effectiveness of workplace wellness programs,” said Mark Schmit, executive director of the SHRM Foundation. “Not only will you save your company money, you will also help improve the health and well-being of your employees.”
The report — written by David Chenoweth, Ph.D., president of Chenoweth & Associates, Inc. and fellow of the International Association for Worksite Health Promotion — is sponsored by WellPoint. It is the 19th report in the SHRM Foundation Effective Practice Guidelines series.
