The use of financial incentives to improve employee participation in health and well-being programs has become nearly ubiquitous among employers. In 2016, almost three-quarters of employers offered financial incentives.
Research shows incentives can effectively drive participation in one-time, simple tasks such as participating in health assessments (HA) or biometric screenings. However, incentives may have limited impact for more complex behavior change. For this reason, as well as the complex regulations surrounding incentive use, nearly 90% of employers are re-thinking their philosophy and approach to incentives.
