In the not too distant past, the term “wellness” began to make its way into the vernacular of workplaces everywhere. At first, its definition (and implementation) was narrow in scope, and revolved largely around employee safety and injury prevention. As the years went by, wellness grew to include not just the physical realm, but also the emotional and psychological — eventually emerging to play a pivotal role in the overall lifestyle of employees. With an ever-present eye toward the bottom line, rising healthcare costs, and a competitive hiring and retention landscape, smart organizations are realizing that wellness programs are no longer a “nice to have,” but rather a significant strategic must have.

In a three-year retrospective study that analyzed health care claims and wearable device data from a self-insured employer, Springbuk looked at the potential impact of Fitbit technology as part of a wellness program.
