New Report Tracks Growth and Details on Employer Use of Incentives to Encourage Participation in Wellness/Health Promotion Programs

MANASQUAN, N.J.,  January 26, 2009 — “Creating Excitement: Today’s Best Practices For Managing Formal Incentives That Drive Employee Participation and Engagement in Workplace Wellness And Health Promotion Programs” has been published by Health Resources Publishing.

The new special report has been produced by the Wellness Program Management Advisor editorial team.

The use of incentives in workplace wellness and health programs can help change employee behavior, experts believe. Financial incentives used by wellness programs help employees by encouraging them to practice healthy lifestyles, according to wellness experts.

The 50-page special report is based on presentations by wellness industry thought leaders during a recent audio conference and includes material presented by Priscilla Bengston, Operations Manager of HealthAssist, a division of Healthtrax; Michael Carter, Vice President of the Hay Group; and Robert Jenkins, Editorial Director of Wellness Program Management Advisor.

“Creating Excitement” reports on the kinds of incentives that get the best results and the latest generation of financial wellness incentives that are seen as an effective way to moderate healthcare cost increases and improve employee well-being.

Prepared for workplace wellness and health promotion professionals the report looks at the growth in wellness programs offering formal incentives compared to just three years earlier.

The report also provides details on the number of organizations now offering cash bonus incentives along with what the wellness incentives programs focus on, based on the results of an exclusive Workplace Wellness Management Survey conducted by Wellness Program Management Advisor and WellnessJunction.com
