The Role Wearable Tech Plays in Workplace Health

Wearable technology is gaining popularity in our society. In 2015, nearly 40 million adults in the United States used wearable technology, almost a 60% increase from the year before. If it continues at that rate, the number of technology wearing adults is predicted to hit 81.7 million by 2018!

The corporate world is no exception. It’s expected that 13 million wearable devices will be integrated into corporate wellness plans over the next five years, according to ABI Research.

How can companies benefit from this digital emergence? Using the right healthcare partner, an organization will be able to:

1. Centralize the data

By setting up a program through Healthstat’s wellness portal, for example, employees are able to sync data from their wearables. In the portal, employees will take a leading role in their healthcare. They will be more aware of their goals and status and can make improvements where improvements are needed.

These wearables have proven to be a convenient resource for your employees, assisting in collecting and monitoring health data. With them, employees will have access to a 24/7 coach in the cloud, any day, any time, encouraging them to live healthier lifestyles.

2. Create challenges

Wearable technology has also proven to be an efficient way to encourage employees to work towards specific health goals.

To raise excitement in the office, employers should consider putting together a program for the employees to challenge themselves in! These challenges can be as simple as reaching a specific number of steps in a day or, using the wearable technology, employees can create their own challenges. They have the option of doing the challenge independently or can team up with peers by inviting other technology-wearing guests.

3. Incentive programs

Employers can also tie their wearable technology into an incentive program for greater employee engagement. For example, if the challenge is to reach 10,000 steps in a day, the employee can be awarded points when they reach the threshold. These thresholds can be set online and linked to incentives like gift cards to a favorite store or for online shopping. When linked to wearables, the data can be verified by the device’s electronic data, instead of solely relying on the employee’s self-reporting.

4. Measure results

This technology can be worn by employees at all times. This means they are able to map their fitness accomplishments and keep tabs on overall health such as sleep patterns, heart rates and weight loss goals.

In addition to any workplace challenges, this raises awareness and will allow employees to have a better holistic understanding of their health. If they are not at the status they want to be, they can then use the portal to create an exercise plan and then use the wearable to help track how much they’ve done.

And these are just a few ideas of how the wearable technology will shape organizations. We’re sure that we’re going to see more companies adopt these technologies in interesting and innovative ways, and see huge advantages as a result.
