Despite a large and growing evidence base demonstrating the positive outcomes of best-practice health and well-being initiatives, media coverage of occasional studies with negative findings sometimes creates confusion among employers about what really works in wellness.
As we did in response to the University of Illinois Workplace Wellness study last year, HERO has collaborated with numerous researchers, consultants, and subject matter experts to assess this recent study in JAMA on the effectiveness of the BJ’s Wholesale Club wellness program. The response is available in a brief executive summary, with a more detailed analysis available in the HERO member Think Tank Library. Our previous response to the University of Illinois study is also available in the Think Tank Library in the Industry Research Reviews folder. The executive summaries are available to the public.
