Adoption of employee wellness programs has taken off in the United States in recent years, and a growing body of research indicates that these programs can improve employees' health and work productivity, reduce health spending, and achieve a positive return on investment. In the interest of helping to strengthen the evidence base and with funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, NIHCM Foundation brought together nearly 40 experts in wellness and research methods to discuss the current state of the evidence and identify new directions for research. The resulting research agenda reflected in this report, Building a Stronger Evidence Base for Employee Wellness Programs, is intended to guide future research and other activities to encourage and assist employers to implement evidence-based wellness interventions.
