Strategies for Driving Employee Engagement in Wellness, Health Care and Job Performance

Engagement Toolkit

A growing number of senior leaders rank employee engagement as a top priority — and challenge — for their organizations. Fewer than one in three employees worldwide consider themselves engaged in their jobs, and 57% of large employers believe that a lack of employee engagement in programs and benefits is their biggest obstacle to managing employee health.1,2

Studies show that engaged employees are healthier, more productive and are better able to contain health care costs. For these reasons, employers are developing comprehensive strategies to engage employees in their wellness, health care decisions and job performance.

This toolkit provides large employers with a road map of tools and resources to better engage their employees. Divided into three sections on wellness, health care and job performance, the toolkit provides evidence-based strategies and tactics — including 48 case examples from 45 companies — to help employees become active participants in their health, motivate them to adopt healthy lifestyles, do their best work and contribute to organizational success.

Special thanks to Business Group member organizations who allowed their programs to be profiled in this toolkit.

The development of this toolkit was a joint collaboration among the following institutes and committee of the National Business Group on Health:
