While a majority of employers say their culture focuses on improving overall well-being, too many of their workers aren't aware of all of the organization's benefits to help them – or they're just not motivated enough to do anything about it, according to LifeWorks' report, "Are we doing enough for employees? A look at wellness benefits."

LifeWorks surveyed 500 hiring professionals and employers and found the more popular well-being benefits are health insurance, flexible scheduling and free food and snacks. However, less-utilized benefits include employee assistance programs, wellness programs and mindfulness training.

The top reasons why employees don't use these additional wellness benefits include: they are unaware of the benefits; they don't understand how to use the benefits; they don't have time to use them; they have no interest in addressing their own well-being; or they don't feel supported by their peers.
