A survey by the Virgin Pulse entitled, “The Business of Healthy Employees 2014: A Survey of Workplace Health Priorities,” revealed the positive effects of wellness programs in the workplace.
Employees surveyed widely viewed wellness programs as a positive contributor to a company’s overall health and image. The result of the survey concluded that 96% of the respondents participate in workplace wellness programs because they want to be healthy, suggesting that improved health may be more of a workplace motivator than monetary incentive.
Data also showed that workplace wellness programs attract and retain employees. Results show 88% of the respondents view companies with wellness programs as exceptional employers. Wellness programs at work may also have a positive effect on the company’s culture.
