Mexico Employee Benefit Trends Study 2018
A tipping point for workplace wellness
The "wellness movement" has accelerated in Mexico, with 93% of employers saying that encouraging healthy employee behavior is an important goal when offering benefits.
Current wellness initiatives are making an impact on employees in Mexico: 92% of wellness-program participants say they had a positive health impact. These employees show higher levels of engagement than those who haven’t participated in wellness programs.
The challenge? While 73% of companies say they were satisfied with the wellness benefits given to workers, only 29% of employees state they are satisfied. There is an opportunity to differentiate wellness offerings by rolling out targeted programs.
Employees want action, not words
Understanding employees' top health concerns is a useful way to help target wellness programs that boost productivity and bring down healthcare costs.
"How interested are you in these programs?" Note the differences in age groups. This is further evidence that knowing the unique characteristics of your workplace is important.
