Getting employees to buy into health and wellness programs isn't just good for employees, says a new white paper from Welltok. It can pay off bigtime for employers' bottom lines as well.

The study, "The Business Case for Employee Engagement," finds that not only are health and wellness programs a means of keeping employees healthier and thus reining in rising health care costs, but the more employees are engaged with those programs, the bigger the payoff — for the employer.

But that's not all; healthier employees, according to Welltok's findings, not only pay off on employers' bottom lines but also become more loyal and productive. The report finds that boosting employee and dependent engagement, even by a few percentage points, can result in a substantial payoff for employers.
