Employer health and wellness programs now reach beyond traditional programs, which typically concentrate on physical health, to include well-being programs that have elements of mental and emotional health, financial health, work-life effectiveness, and workplace environment and stress, according to a new employer survey by WorldatWork.

Of the common well-being program categories, the top elements employers support are employee assistance program resource and referral at 80 percent, safety at 73 percent, immunizations at 73 percent, encouraged vacation time at 66 percent and retirement education at 57 percent.
