Guardian Study Reveals Wellness/Benefits
Benefits and Behavior: Voice of American Business Owners and Benefit Decision Makers revealed gaps between business owner/decision maker beliefs about wellness and employee benefits programs and actual business practices.
Smaller companies trail larger businesses in the implementation of wellness programs despite widespread beliefs by employers and benefit decision makers at companies of all sizes that wellness programs have value.
-- 82% of small employers, 90% of midsize employers and 99% of large employers see value in implementing wellness programs. Yet only 57% of the small businesses that value wellness programs have implemented some type of plan.
