Johnette Van Eeden and Mike Coffey discuss how employers’ attitudes toward employee wellness has changed over the last two decades due to changes in financial incentives, regulations making outcome-based programs more difficult for employers to implement, and healthcare reform.
They also talk about how an employer can establish a baseline for measuring their employee population’s health and interventions that employers can implement to encourage healthier lifestyles.
They also discuss vaccine mandates, booster shots, Covid variants, and breakthrough Covid cases.
