Multiple measures should be used to assess corporate wellness program objectives. VIRV HR Consulting will conduct a health risk assessment to collect baseline data on employees’ health habits and personal characteristics prior to implementation of the corporate wellness program.

The evaluation of corporate wellness objectives and program should focus on the effects of the various interventions introduced to employees. Was the corporate wellness program able to accomplish the desired results? In order to have a successful program, the effects should be tied to specific program objectives such as:  

  • Improving employees’ health habits
  • Reducing health care costs
  • Increasing the employees’ level of physical activity
  • Reducing workers’ compensation costs
  • Reducing absenteeism and turnover
  • Improving productivity

Companies that implemented a wellness program experienced a 28% reduction in employees calling in sick (Institute for Healthcare Consumerism)
