SHRM’s 2015 Strategic Benefits Survey collected comprehensive information on wellness initiatives, including their use, return on investment and cost-savings, as well as the use of incentives and rewards.

This research found that about two-thirds (69%) of HR professionals indicated their organization offered some type of wellness program, resource or service to employees. Among these respondents, about one-half (52%) reported that employee participation increased last year compared with the year before; the same was true in 2014 (53%), 2013 (56%) and 2012 (54%), indicating a pattern of increased use of wellness initiatives over time. More than three-quarters (77%) of respondents from organizations that offered wellness initiatives indicated these initiatives were “somewhat effective" or “very effective” in reducing the costs of health care; about four-fifths (82%) also rated their wellness initiatives as being "somewhat effective" or "very effective" in improving the physical health of their employees.
