What are incentives?
Incentives are a powerful catalyst for positive change. Our rewards engine is a highly configurable, incentive-management platform that increases employee engagement and helps your wellness dollars work harder. There are two types of incentive programs: Activity-Based Rewards and Outcome-Based Rewards. Activity-Based Rewards provide an automated way to score and deliver pass/fail participant status based on completion of wellness activities as part of your organization’s Blueprint for Wellness. Outcome-Based Rewards help promote targeted behavior change based on measured values from biometrics and laboratory tests.
Why are incentives important?
Offering incentives as part of your wellness screening program helps participants achieve their individual health goals by incentivizing them to make incremental health improvements each year. In turn, your wellness screening program will have a higher rate of participation, and you will receive more meaningful population-level insights into your company’s potential health risks and future healthcare-related costs.

Choose an incentive
Offering an incentive for screening participation and/or health improvement is a wellness program best practice. In our experience, the best wellness program incentives are those that are communicated with precision to employees, and those that gradually increase in participant engagement.
Reward being smoke-free
Many employers provide financial incentives to employees who do not use tobacco, but the incentive dollars employers pay out to individuals who falsely claim they do not use tobacco can more than offset the cost of adding cotinine testing to their existing biometric screening program.
