Wellness Spending


Employers look to spend an average of $521 per employee in wellness-based incentives this year, a 13 percent increase from $460 in 2011, according to the National Business Group on Health (NBGH). The organization estimates spending on corporate wellness-based incentives has doubled since 2009.  NBGH also reports that 77 percent of polled midmarket employers plan to offer wellness-based incentives in 2013 — more than double the number in 2010.
