How Data Analytics Can Boost Employee Health and Wellness Program Effectiveness

  1. Make the business case with the C-suite. When leadership supports improved wellness programs through better data, it gets the rank-and-file buy-in needed to make the effort pay off.
  2. Consult your broker for guidance. It’s not enough to tap into traditional wellness data, like biometric screenings. You need the right data — whether it concerns absenteeism or workers’ compensation — to give the best insights into current and potential conditions that confront your employee population at large. Talk to your broker on determining what type of data is best for your program.
  3. Make solutions and positioning personal and relevant. If targeting a younger population, avoid one-size-fits-all messages about initiatives but personalize them instead. And ensure resources and interventions are in the right mode. A 25-year old may prefer to access help on demand, while older workers may prefer scheduled classes or programs.
