“Incentives act as a trigger that motivates employees to change behavior”
Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) July 07, 2015
Healthcare costs are rising faster than inflation. Annual healthcare expenditures are quickly becoming the principal outlay for companies. Over the past eight years, costs have risen over 40 percent for the average family of four. During the well-attended webinar event, participants learned several innovative program techniques to increase wellness program engagement, stabilize participation and apply the “right” incentives that will drive sustainable change.
David Lenihan of Healthper, Inc., noted, “We must shift the way we think about healthcare. We must continue to manage rising medical costs, but need to refocus our strategy on productivity cost. Productivity cost is not just about physical health, it’s about total population wellbeing.” Additionally, Lenihan explained that wellness must start at the top of the figurative food chain. When a program is introduced into a population, senior management must support and commit to endorsing the program for it to be successful.
“Incentives act as a trigger that motivate employees to change behavior,” stated Chuck Christianson of Connexions Loyalty. Utilizing tangible incentives increases program participation because employees connect their actions with memorable rewards. And, tangible incentives are particularly effective in motivating employees who are not yet participating in a wellness program. According to Connexions’ research, 88 percent of non-participants say tangible incentives would increase their interest in participating in a wellness program. A well-designed program can be the determining factor between a healthy, productive, present workforce and an unhealthy, disengaged organization.
