  • A new Willis Towers Watson study found that 86 percent of employers named worker mental health, stress, and burnout as key priorities in 2022, but 49 percent have yet to articulate a formal strategy for wellness. Only a quarter of the 322 employers surveyed have outlined and deployed a wellness strategy and 35 percent have an organization-wide behavioral health strategy and action plan.
