What do employees look for in wellness programs?

Employees most frequently look for flexibility in wellness programs, allowing them to accommodate different schedules and lifestyles. A range of activities and resources is important to meet diverse interests and needs. 

Offering rewards and recognition for participation and achievements, opportunities for social interaction, and access to professional guidance and support—such as counseling services—are also  highly valued. According to a survey by the National Business Group on Health, employees value wellness programs that offer personalized support and a variety of wellness activities.

For weight management programs, in particular, it’s important that employers market these offerings tactfully and without stigmatizing or making employees feel blamed or othered.
