WELLNESS AWARD PROGRAMS
TRAINING FOR THE ASCENT
Wellness programs are popular because health care costs have ballooned more than 40 percent in the last five years, and they’re able to reduce costs as much as $225 per employee. Plus, wellness programs often improve employee morale. Negative incentives, such as charging higher health insurance premiums for not participating, aren’t effective. But positive rewards can increase wellness program participation from 26 percent to 90 percent. The millions of tangible rewards plus the more than 100 eGift cards provided in our technology platform eliminate this concern.
As an employer, employee wellness programs have the potential to do far more than benefit your employees. Encouraging your employees to get serious about their health and well-being through corporate wellness programs does your business a lot of good, as well. When you use workplace wellness programs to incentivize your employees’ health, they understand that you’re concerned about their wellness, which strengthens their loyalty toward the company. When employees are healthier, they’re also more likely to be more productive and feel better about themselves, which can lead to increased productivity and improved customer service. Given how important these driving forces are for any business, it makes a lot of sense for employers to take an active interest in encouraging their employees to live healthier lifestyles.
Wellness award programs can greatly benefit companies by creating a powerful incentive for your employees to take their health and fitness seriously, but only when the incentives are worth the effort. As a recognized leader in the employee recognition segment, Point Recognition has the expertise and experience to help your business’s employee wellness program succeed.

Findings from 56 studies on worksite wellness programs that were published in the American Journal of Health Promotion showed an average 27 percent reduction in sick leave absenteeism, 26 percent reduction in health care costs, and 32 percent reduction in workers’ compensation and disability management cost claims.
