|Most wellness programs are designed while looking through the lens of money. Who are the most expensive employees? What can we do to change those employees so they will cost less? What you get when this is your focus is policies that charge overweight, tobacco-using employees more money for health insurance than their slender, healthier counterparts and all but forces these individuals into programs that they may or may not be ready for or even interested in participating in.|
These are the wellness programs where very little changes in overall employee health and the money you were hoping to save goes down the drain along with the additional cost of your failing wellness program.
