The concept of wellness in the workplace is relatively new and many companies are actively creating wellness programs to improve the lives of their employees. However, the exact definition of wellness remains unclear and inconsistent across organizations. Global research conducted by The O.C. Tanner Institute helps establish a definition of employee wellbeing. This paper explains the large benefits in store for companies that are able to improve their employees’ wellbeing and explores why this trend is relevant in the workplace today. It describes, in detail, what companies can do to improve the large portion of life spent at work and, more specifically, investigates how the benefits and perks currently offered at work impact wellbeing and where they fall short.

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.

When it comes to engaging employees in workplace wellness programs today, the operative phrase is quickly becoming, “Let the games begin!” After suffering decreasing engagement and fewer savings than they initially expected from their wellness programs, employers are boosting participation by incorporating gamification—the emerging field of applying game mechanics and strategies to various types of applications and programs. The end game, you might say, is lower healthcare costs, along with happier, more productive and engaged employees.
