According to a recent Willis Towers Watson report, 88% of the 232 U.S. employers surveyed are seeking new health and wellness vendors. They are changing vendors to better meet their workers’ needs and improve overall workforce health. Many are looking to add, enhance, or end a range of health and well-being solutions and services or to partner with a new vendor in the future. The employers surveyed collectively employ 3 million workers.

Employer Takeaways

Many employers are using vendors to design comprehensive and competitive employee benefit packages and deliver cost savings. They are searching for vendors that can provide benefits and wellness programs, drive innovation, integrate with their existing benefits, and provide savings.

Employers may want to evaluate their current vendor partnerships to see how their solutions are working, how satisfied employees are, and their return on investment. It’s important to continually monitor vendor utilization, health care trends, and partnerships.
