The popular and scientific literature on workplace wellness is dominated by measurement of financial return on investment (ROI), especially from medical care cost savings. Is this focus misplaced? Do employers place as high a priority on ROI as the literature suggests? Are employers more concerned about the impact of programs on the core priorities of their organization? Shifting to this perspective will require understanding the organization's core priorities, developing programs to address those priorities, measuring the impact of the program on those priorities, and communicating the findings to relevant parties.
