EMPLOYEE WELLNESS

The first study to examine whether wellness plans make employees healthier had discouraging news. While such plans can make workers more aware of their health and more apt to exercise, they don’t actually lead to any improvements in outcomes, according to the study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Such plans aren’t total failures, according to the researchers. If the employer’s goal is to get people moving and eating better, they will move the needle. But if the goal is to save money on health care costs, that’s not happening.
