Increasing Participation Rates in Wellness Programs for Small and Medium Organizations Technical Report

The Interdisciplinary Center for Healthy Workplaces (ICHW) at UC Berkeley and Transamerica Center for Health Studies® (TCHS) are releasing the new, evidence-based analysis, Increasing Participation Rates in Wellness Programs for Small and Medium Organizations Technical Report.  This report analyzes how elements of workplace wellness programs can be applicable to organizations of any size or industry and how organizations can engage employees more effectively to increase and sustain participation.

The technical report consists of several components including:

  • Literature review

  • Employer testimonials from small to medium size organizations

  • Employee and employer survey analysis

  • Resources for implementing workplace wellness programs

In addition, ICHW created an interactive assessment tool to guide users on selecting workplace wellness programs that fit their company culture and employee needs. The tool also links to the Finding Fit Employer Guide so users can learn more about addressing an organization’s resources and constraints.

Our research for the employer guide was funded by the Transamerica Center for Health Studies(link is external).
