As Matt Dunning of BusinessInsurance.com details in his recent article, Twenty-three percent of large employers polled in a survey released in December by Mercer L.L.C. said their wellness programs include incentives tied to an employee’s achieving — or at least demonstrating progress toward — a certain health status or biometric reading, up from 20% in 2013. Similarly, a September survey by Towers Watson & Co. found that 18% of employers already use outcomes-based wellness incentives, while another 10% plan to do so this year. Outcomes-based incentives are “where we’ve been heading for a while now, and I don’t see that changing,” said Jill Micklow, a Chicago-based wellness consultant at Schaumburg, Illinois-based Assurance Agency Ltd. “I think you’re definitely going to see more of the same this year and into next year from employers.”

The Titus Work Strong program is intended to improve the overall health standards of America’s workforce.  Work Strong deploys a comprehensive Education, Engagement and Adherence program designed to mitigate the rising cost of health care and enhance productivity.   The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reported that work sites with physical activity programs as components of their employee wellness programs can expect:
