  • A recent survey by the Business Group on Health and Fidelity Investments underscores the continued importance of well-being programs for employers, with nearly all 160 surveyed firms considering them key to their overall strategy and planning to maintain current funding levels. Moreover, over half of the respondents aim to expand these programs to address social determinants of health in the next three to five years, reflecting a growing awareness of the impact of social factors on employee health.
