Wellness in the Workplace

Did you know that $2.2 trillion dollars are lost yearly in the U.S. due to unhealthy workers? In response, most companies are implementing wellness programs in order to get employees moving.  However, getting employees to actually participate in these programs can be difficult, especially when their job responsibilities are primarily performed while at a desk. We asked a Global 500 computer software company to learn how they were able to increase wellness participation by 61-80% by using e-gift cards.
