success lane failure driveWho says we don’t deliver value? Two, we say, two, important posts today about us in Employee Benefits News (EBN, registration required).

First, our colleague Linda Riddell posts about our series on HERO. In case you missed it, HERO, a wellness industry organ, exclaims in its own report that wellness damages morale and loses money. But, companies should do it anyway. As Linda notes, it is time to get past the nonsense and on to the serious business of fixing workplace wellness.

In a separate EBN article, Andrea Davis looks at companies taking alternative approaches to the usual poke, prod, pry, and punish programs popularized by, well, the people and organizations behind HERO. Her big take away is that it’s starting to look more and more like a new day is dawning in wellness, as companies start to pivot away from doing things to their employees and do more things for and with them.

Declare your independence from wellness intrusion. Quizzify.
