Rolling out any workplace program requires a shift in culture, and a focused effort to get employees engaged. When it comes to health and wellness programs, this can be quite a heavy lift.

But putting the proper policies, technologies and incentives in place can make for a strong adoption rate and successful program. That’s why wearable technology has become critical to how corporate wellness is viewed. With the use of smartwatches like the Samsung Galaxy Watch or Gear Sport, employees can track frequency and intensity of exercise routines — from a lunch break walk to a morning weightlifting regimen.

Wellness applications can provide both the insights the employee wants to see for their own goals, and the structured incentives needed by the business to push forward a robust corporate wellness program, improve employee well-being and potentially reduce their insurance costs.
