New Research Finds U.S. Employees Are More Engaged When Employer Cares About Well-Being

Jan. 26, 2015

Employee engagement is higher when workforces are satisfied with the health and well-being benefits their employer provides, according to new research from Quantum Workplace and Limeade. As part of its research, the study found that more than 73 percent of employees want healthy cafeteria or vending options at work, but fewer than half of employers provide it.

 "Understanding what motivates your people is the key to improving workforce excellence. This study exposes the need for employers to reevaluate and clearly communicate how and why they offer the benefits they do," said Henry Albrecht, Limeade CEO. "Many of the benefits employees are craving, like flexibility and stress management breaks, can make a tremendous impact with little investment."
