This means that every employee, regardless of their health challenges or levels, can be a part of such programs, fostering a sense of unity and belonging.

  • Activity-only wellness programs are more action-oriented. They inspire employees to undertake or complete specific health-related activities.

Incentives or rewards often serve as motivational boosts, ensuring higher engagement and participation.

  • Outcome-based wellness programs take it a notch higher, focusing on measurable health outcomes. Such programs set specific health targets, like reduced cholesterol levels or weight loss, and offer rewards upon achieving these benchmarks. These are particularly useful for organizations aiming for tangible health improvements within their workforce. Goals are much easier to achieve if there is help or a reward for the participants.
