Report Finds Employers Measure VOI of Wellness Programs

Posted By NWI, Tuesday, November 3, 2015

The Willis Health and Productivity Survey Report 2015 was released earlier this week, and the findings about workplace wellness programs were unsurprising. Namely – employers want more for their money.

There is positivity in the report, however, with Willis referring to 2015 as a “watershed year” for worksite wellness programs.

The report states that many employers have come to grips with the idea that an immediate ROI is difficult to be achieved in a short amount of time after starting a worksite wellness program. Instead, they’re shifting their focus to VOI (Value on Investment) of different aspects of their work culture that can be achieved through a quality worksite wellness program. Aspects of work culture like presenteeism, loyalty, and tenure are being improved by providing a workplace that values wellness.

ROI is still a major concern for many employers, though, and a focus on reducing medical costs of employees still weighs heavily on many employers’ minds in terms of what they expect from a wellness program.

In terms of whether or not there is merit in having a worksite wellness program, the consensus among those polled for the Willis report seems to be a resounding “Yes.”
