Simply offering a wellness program provides no guarantee of improving employee wellbeing, lowering medical expenses, or improving productivity and employee engagement.  Employees must be aware the program exists and participate in it.  Although more than 85% of large employers offer a wellness program, Gallup research shows that only 60% of U.S. employees are aware that their company offers a wellness program, and only 40% of those who are aware of the program say they actually participate in it.  This results in a dismal 24% participation rate in corporate wellness programs.
