One Size Does Not Fit All

employee healthAlthough, Employee wellness have now been bundled as an employee benefit and a critical process to the organization, unfortunately, the programs designed are not data driven and seemed more of One size fit for all. A major chunk of health/ wellness budget in organizations is spent on activities that may not be applicable for the employees at the location where the activities are executed. E.g. if at a location, employees are not Diabetic and the organization is spending a lot on HBa1C or advance diabetes test may not be worth. These investments and activities are not driven by any data and there are no tools available to the employees to measure the effectiveness and measure the effectiveness of the programs.

The answer to this problem is going data driven way to analyze the current and historical data, plan and then execute the wellness initiatives. Information derived from data helps organizations to identify the right set of programs to be provided to the right group of employees, engage employees in focused health initiatives leading to better results.
