Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features Pinnacol Assurance’s recent announcement of new research that found that small businesses are prepared to adopt workplace wellness programs and are actually good targets for such health interventions.
The research is part of a longer, longitudinal study to determine whether small business’ workers’ comp costs fall and worker productivity improves if health promotion programs are offered. The initial study provides key insights on how to structure programs for small businesses and eliminate barriers to adoption. Perhaps more interesting though was that most research is usually conducted on a single large organization, while this study was successful in attracting a diverse selection of small businesses (potentially due to the program being offered through their workers’ comp insurer), meaning that the data generated may be more representative of “real-world” results for workplace wellness programs.
