The combination of an aging workforce and long term increases for health costs has forced organizations to find ways of promoting wellness and improving the health of their employees.
There is a high interest by employees to launch or grow wellness initiatives, and employees generally see these initiatives as beneficial to their own health. Many employers now offer some level of incentive to employees who participate in a wellness program. Interest in wellness programs is also driven by Part U of the Affordable Care Act which encourages these types of programs.
Workplace wellness programs are a win-win for both the enterprise and its employees. Investments in wellness programs have demonstrated returns on investment and are a viable way for businesses to address the well-being of their employee and their bottom line. Employees who participate in workplace wellness programs are generally regarded as fitter, more productive, and have better morale.
Oracle’s My Wellness provides the tools to implement, administer, and manage wellness programs.
