From telemedicine and stress reduction to weight management and health advocacy programs, today’s employers are providing a dramatic increase of progressive health plans, tailor-made to the always thriving workforce. Results from a new survey published by World at Work and Korn Ferry Hay Group speak broadly to the latest trends in the market.

Employees are accustomed to having 24/7 access to information, which is increasing the popularity of benefits that offer constant access to meet a wide range of health and wellness issues. With a tight labor market and fierce competition for qualified talent, organizations are becoming more creative in offering unique health and wellness benefits to help them enhance talent attraction and retention efforts.
