WorldatWork 2013 – Buck presents Emerging Technology in Health Engagement: Survey Results

The Emerging Technology in Health Engagement Survey looks into the organizational use of social networking, social media, gamification, mobile technology, and other technology tools to engage employees in improving their health and well-being. Tools from vendors currently abound, but what really works? Which methods drive the right outcomes? What role can the employer play in promoting these tools?

Key findings from the report include:

  • 73% of responding organizations have a health engagement strategy to encourage employees to improve and monitor health, but two thirds have conducted little or no assessment of employees’ preferences for various types of communications technology.
  • Mobile technology is one of the least implemented tools but the highest priority for adoption or expansion
  • Gamification is the most prevalent tool used and ranks highest in respondents’ perception of effectiveness in achieving objectives

Join me, my colleague, Ruth Hunt, communications and health consumerism thought leader, and Lenny Sanicola, senior practice leader at WorldatWork to discuss the findings from this survey and what employers need to consider for their future health engagement strategy. Our session is Monday, April 29, from 10:15 – 11:45 a.m. and the session code is B08M2.

Stop by our booth, #506 and share some of your thoughts with us. We look forward to seeing you!
