More and more companies are seeking to create healthier workplaces. A 2017 survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) showed that 53% of organizations want to encourage health and wellness in their organization’s culture and 60% of organizations have implemented some sort of health and wellness program. It is important to create a health and wellness program that will effectively garner employee participation. An excellent way to help create a culture of health and wellness within your company or organization, as well as to ensure maximum participation in your company’s program is to create a health and wellness redemption rewards program.

A health and wellness rewards program has multiple benefits that improve both productivity and participants health and wellbeing. A health and wellness incentive reward program can help individuals and families make healthy choices every day, while also reducing elevated health risks. Employers who implement health and wellness reward and incentive programs will see productivity improvements amongst their employees and lower absenteeism. Implementing a health and wellness rewards program shows your employees that you care about their wellbeing and it can improve your company’s employee recruitment and retention, all the while building your employees’ morale. Additionally, a quality health and wellness program can decrease your company’s overall spending on health care.

Understanding how rewards and incentives drive program engagement and participation are just the step of many hurdles that plan managers need to be overcome.
