The way we approach health is changing dramatically. A major driving force behind this shift is the advent of health technology. Mobile apps, social networks, games and devices are aiding in the pursuit of better health by making obscure health concepts understandable, difficult lifestyle changes more approachable, and the solitary journey social.
In order to examine the precise manner in which technology is altering and aiding employers’ approach to corporate wellness, ShapeUp and context communication consulting administered the first annual Technology + Employee Wellness Survey. The survey sought to answer:
- What technology do employers use to promote employee health?
- What specific health objectives do they use technology for?
- What percentage of senior leaders supports the use of technology for employee health?
- What are the barriers to adoption? And what is the potential upside?
The data and insights from this survey provide a powerful tool for any employer seeking innovative ways to achieve important health outcomes. Download the survey report by clicking the button in the top right and then complete the form to watch the webinar we held to discuss its results!
