UCLA-Led Review Finds Workplace Wellness Programs Are Not Evaluated Consistently
Workplace wellness programs are not consistently evaluated and often fail to track employees' cardiovascular health, according to a review of such programs led by a UCLA professor of cardiology. Rather, such wellness programs tend to "focus more on processes than on the actual health that's being achieved," according to Gregg Fonarow, lead author of the study.
