More than two-thirds (67%) of US employer respondents plan to expand their employee wellbeing programmes, according to research by Fidelity Investments and US non-profit organisation the National Business Group on Health.

Brian Marcotte, chief executive officer and president of National Business Group on Health, said: “Social factors and one’s environment play an important role in employee engagement and in one’s view of their overall wellbeing.

“We are seeing more organisations step up their efforts to integrate financial and emotional wellbeing, social connectedness and job satisfaction with their more traditional efforts to support physical health."
