As employee wellness programs have shifted from “nice to have” to “need to have,” employers have adjusted their views of what constitutes true employee health engagement. Defining engagement as mere participation is out. Engagement in health (rather than simply with program resources) is in. And designing rewards programs to reflect strategic goals is on.
As employers continue to encourage employees down the path to increased responsibility for health and healthcare, will expectations of wellness programs and predictors of engagement continue to shift as well?
RedBrick Health’s large-scale, two-year study followed over 180,000 participants to explore the impact of choice on health outcomes. The study analyzed six risk areas, including professionally collected biometrics and health habits.
Findings reinforce the effectiveness of the RedBrick consumer-centric model: When consumers were allowed to choose their health focus and modality (with data-driven guidance), they achieved clinically meaningful and statistically significant improvements at almost identical rates regardless of intervention modality.
