The biannual Emerging Technology to Promote Employee Wellbeing study, by Xerox Human Resources Services in conjunction with National Business Group on Health, polled more than 200 employers, 70% of whom are multinational organizations.

“Changes in benefit program design increasingly require individuals to take personal responsibility for their wellbeing,” said Karen Marlo, vice president of the National Business Group on Health.

“New technology, such as wearables, provides employers with an opportunity to motivate and empower employees to take an active role in their own healthcare experience. The key for employers is identifying programs that provide both individualized support and measurable results for employee wellbeing, working to positively impact health and wealth.”
