Dr. Technology: Trends in Employee Wellness

Employee wellness programs are on the rise, as is employee satisfaction in such initiatives. Employers are noticing more productive employees, enriched workplace cultures and reduced health-related spending. Part of this trend is the ever-growing role technology is playing in workplace wellness.

Mobile devices monitor our vital signs and push us to take wellness actions. Social media extends the power of community support networks. Web platforms help us create holistic perspectives of our wellness needs. The bottom line: gadgets, apps and social networks are demonstrating their power to improve wellness. 

This panel pulls together HR experts and technology providers to shed light on what makes an employee wellness program successful and how to leverage technology for wellness objectives.
