According to the 2013 Aon Hewitt Health Care Survey, The Rand Workplace Wellness Programs Study, and the Gallagher 2014 Benefits Strategy & Benchmarking Survey, employers identify increased participation in health and wellness as the highest desired strategic outcome of their wellness program efforts. At the same time, they note that the biggest obstacle to achieving their program goals is finding a way to motivate participants to change behavior.
69% suggest that motivating employees to change health behaviors will be a significant focus over the next three to five years.
76% seek to increase participation in wellness, health improvement / disease management programs.
7 out of 10 employers say that motivating participants to change their behavior is a major obstacle to achieving their health care strategy.
