Managing Editor Andrea Davis at Employee Benefit News interviewed Alan Kohll, founder of Total Wellness, about wellness incentives.
The traditional worksite wellness model incentivizes people to participate in healthy behaviors; unfortunately most people are not changing their behavior. Instead of throwing money at the problem, we need to work with individuals to tap into their values, help them understand why they want to change and then give them the best tools to succeed. During the podcast interview, Alan speaks to the importance of building intrinsic motivation in employees to increase participation in wellness programs.
