72% of workers in the UAE prioritize managing their health…

…while 64% feel it’s the responsibility of employers to promote healthier habits among their employees, according to the Global Benefits Attitudes Survey by Willis Towers Watson.

Corporate wellness programs have drastically shifted from being seen as a “nice-to-have” perk to an integral part of many companies’ business strategies. 

Thinking of investing? You might be asking, “But what are the crucial metrics that can help us assess the return of investment (ROI) from these programs?” Here, we present key parameters you should be considering. 

Metric Description Potential ROI
Employee Participation Rate The proportion of employees who are actively participating in the program Higher participation rates can lead to improved overall company health culture, possibly reducing healthcare costs
Healthcare Costs A measure of the company’s overall spending on healthcare for employees Wellness programs can potentially lower healthcare costs by promoting employee health and preventive care
Employee Productivity The overall effectiveness and efficiency of an employee’s work  Wellness programs can boost employee productivity by reducing stress and improving mental and physical health
Employee Satisfaction A measure of how content employees are with the overall work environment and corporate culture Well-implemented wellness programs can increase job satisfaction, reducing turnover and improving company morale
Absenteeism Rates The rate at which employees do not attend their scheduled work due to illness or stress Reduced absenteeism rates can increase productivity and decrease costs associated with lost work hours and replacement workers

Within less than six months of launching the LVL program, FTI Consulting achieved a 50% adoption rate, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
