In the early days of health promotion management, program incentives were simple things: apples, time off, an occasional gift certificate or door prize. As incentives became more complex and valuable, so did the ways they were used.

But the overarching question is: Do incentives really improve participation and outcomes? And if they do, what kind of incentives gets the best results?

Almost 70 percent of wellness managers now encourage employee participation in wellness programs through incentives or rewards, up from 54.7 percent of managers who used incentives in 2003, according to results of an exclusive Workplace Wellness Management Survey on Incentives conducted by Wellness Program Management Advisor and Wellness Junction. But in order for incentives to work, they need to be designed and administered effectively. Incentives need to be significant enough to incent behavior and designed to be fair, convenient and realistic.

Join Wellness Program Management Advisor to explore the types of wellness incentives that work to boost participation and, most importantly, health improvement in this special 90-minute audio conference that took place on January 25, 2007.
