Workplace Wellness Programs Study – Final Report – RAND – 2013

“The report investigates the characteristics of workplace wellness programs, their prevalence, their impact on employee health and medical cost, facilitators of their success, and the role of incentives in such programs. The authors employ four data collection and analysis streams: a review of the scientific and trade literature, a national survey of employers, a longitudinal analysis of medical claims and wellness program data from a sample of employers, and five case studies of existing wellness programs in a diverse set of employers to gauge the effectiveness of wellness programs and employees’ and employers’ experiences.”

Staff health improvement project –  Royal College of Physicians (RCP) – 20 August 2012

“The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) has published the interim report and a summary of its Staff Health Improvement Project.

In 2010 the RCP’s Health and Work Development Unit (HWDU) – a partnership between the RCP and the Faculty of Occupational Medicine (FOM) – measured how far NHS trusts across England had progressed with implementing the NICE public health guidance for the workplace. The audit covered areas such as obesity, mental wellbeing and management of long-term sickness absence.

Implementation of the NICE recommendations benefits organisations by improving staff health and wellbeing, leading to better productivity, improved patient outcomes and increased financial savings.

Phase one of the Staff Health Improvement Project involved interviewing 22 trusts about their approach to successfully implementing the guidance. The interim report and summary describes the findings from those interviews, including a description of enablers and barriers to implementation and a summary of the key initiatives that have been put in place.

The summary interim report is aimed at HR Directors and board members with responsibility for staff health and wellbeing. The full interim report is aimed at health and wellbeing implementers.”

London’s business case for employee health and well-being – 28 May 2012

London’s business case for employee health and well-being – 28 May 2012

“London faces a number of health/work related issues with a greater percentage of people with health problems being workless in London than nationally, with fewer people with disabilities finding work, whilst the majority of Londoners on incapacity benefits have preventable and/or treatable conditions.

Employee ill health has costs to employers as well as to the individual and society. It has been estimated that an average London firm of 250 employees loses around £250,000 a year due to ill health.

Evidence would indicate that well designed employee welfare programmes that are integrated into the core of the firm can more than cover the costs of such a programme to the firm. The benefits of these programmes accrue not only to the firms running them but to the employee and society as a whole.”
