A recent employer survey by Willis Towers Watson found that 72 percent of U.S. companies “aim to improve their health and well-being strategies and programs over the next three years to differentiate themselves from organizations with which they compete for talent.”

In fact, more than half (53 percent) of employees with access to a company well-being program say the initiative has had a positive impact on their health, according to a recent UnitedHealthcare survey. Among those, 88 percent said the programs motivated them to pay more attention to their health, 67 percent said the initiatives helped them reduce their body weight, and 30 percent said the resources helped detect a disease or medical condition.

To help employers support their employees’ health goals, here are five “Cs” that may drive engagement and create a successful well-being program.

These five Cs can help improve your company’s well-being program and earn an A+ in employee engagement.
