Wellness Programs for a Healthy Workplace
(March 14, 2016)
Interactive Health President and CEO Cathy Kenworthy recently presented at the Fifth Annual Gibbons Employment & Labor Law Conference for clients of the firm. Cathy discussed the business case for implementing workplace wellness programs, and Gibbons shared some key takeaways from the presentation in a blog post.
The post discusses hard and soft benefits, participation, incentives, program design and key regulations in regards to workplace wellness programs.
“The business principles associated with what makes for an effective wellness program are the very same principles that are reinforced with emerging case law, rules and the regulatory environment. Interactive Health’s data showed that 95% of the programs implemented among their client base both achieve significant impact and are “green” with regard to legal risk, i.e., they do not cross into any of the issues recently pursued in courts.”
