Multinational organizations continue to seek ways to reduce healthcare costs and improve healthcare trends. Several have turned to formalized wellness programs. In order to assist human resource professionals in evaluating their organization's need for such programs there are several questions that must be answered related to an organization's needs, anticipated employee adoption of a program, and the costs associated with a program. This paper will review the persistence of chronic health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and cancer within the United States, the United Kingdom, and Mexico. Additionally, the paper will review suggested components that can be included in a formalized program, the mechanics of building a business case, and calculating the return on investment for a given program.
