Latest report on wellness ROI: $1.65

The latest study on return-on-investment of a corporate wellness program is one of those classic forward-it-along-to-your-HR-VP items.

The Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine published an article in its February issue showing that Pittsburgh-based health insurer Highmark's wellness plan returned $1.65 for every dollar spent.

One highlight: participants' healthcare costs were $162 per year lower than matched non-participants. Data was collected over a four-year period.

Check out the press release on the corporate wellness study. For a full copy of the study, you'll need to pay at the journal's website. (Use the link above, which is for the abstract only.)

If you have an executive you need to convince of the ROI of a wellness program, the full text may be worth the investment.
