UnitedHealthcare has reported that “62% of participants in wellness programs say their productivity has improved, 56% have had fewer sick days and 30% say they had a disease detected thanks to these programs” – proving that wellness programs do improve employee lifestyles and decrease employer costs.

Rebecca Madsen, chief consumer officer of the Minnesota-based UnitedHealthcare, says that “73% of employees that do not have a wellness program want them, so offering these programs could provide opportunities not only in fewer sick days but also in employee engagement.”
