FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 4, 2021 — Scottsdale, Ariz. – Most HR leaders (61%) say demand for well-being programs has increased in recent months, as has employee utilization (63%) of the programs, according to WorldatWork’s “Workplace Well-Being Trends” survey. Workforce well-being programs support an employee’s physical, emotional or financial health and nurture a positive and productive organizational culture (they are distinct from health care benefits). The comprehensive survey gauges employer vs. employee opinions of nine well-being offerings; gender and generational attitudes towards different well-being initiatives; influencing factors on an organization’s support of programs; the role of leadership in supporting a culture of well-being; manager training to identify mental health challenges, and more. (Journalists: contact email@example.com for survey reports.)
“For HR professionals, executives and managers, there’s a wealth of data in this research to help assess your organization’s well-being initiatives and benchmark what the best places to work are doing,” said Scott Cawood, WorldatWork CEO. “This survey highlights that a culture of well-being plays a far more critical role than any one benefit program to the long-term success of an organization. In fact, it is this type of culture that elevates the employee experience and ultimately leads to a more resilient workforce.”
WorldatWork invited its member and customer base to participate in a survey on U.S. workplace well-being programs. A total of 640 responses were received. In addition, 501 full-time business professionals in the U.S. responded to survey questions via MarketCube, an online panel. Data was collected in March 2021 over a 15-day period.
