Perspectives towards health are shifting, and with a wellness technology in place, a corporate wellness program can make significant impacts in reducing enterprises’ healthcare expenses.
FREMONT, CA: Employee health affects more than just medical costs. A healthy workforce translates into more productivity. Unhealthy lifestyle choices often lead to dangerous health conditions, costing enterprises millions of dollars in lost productivity alone. But, there are many different methods to create a culture of corporate wellness, and wellness technology plays a vital role.
Technology is enabling people to take control of their health in ways they have never been able to previously. Then, why not enterprises harness the power of this technology and develop an engaging experience for their employees? Mobile engagement strategies could drive the corporate wellness program, making it more effective than any other initiative. Thanks to Artificial Intelligence (AI), wellness technology can now offer a personalized experience to individual users. Combining this feature with comprehensive health risk assessments for employees, it can serve as a personalized coach from enterprises' end and give preventative health recommendations, health information, workouts, recipes, and more.
The apparent reasons for investing in corporate wellness technology are that healthier employees equal lower healthcare costs. An effective wellness program aided by technology also translates to business outputs like lower absenteeism and higher job satisfaction, productivity, and employee retention. A healthier workplace is also a safer workforce. A workforce that pays more attention to health pays more attention to workplace safety too.
How to engage employees is something that always challenged even the most creative human resource departments and managers. Several factors contribute to employee engagement, and corporate wellness programs crafted with the help of technology is just one of the contributors.
