Overview

Activity trackers such as Fitbit have become popular with millions of people worldwide. According to recent news, manufacturers of wearable health technology have targeted corporate wellness programs. For example, Fitbit added 1,000 new enterprise customers to its corporate wellness platform in Q4 of 2015. Unit orders from enterprise customers can range from 500 for small and medium companies up to the U.S. retailer Target buying devices for all of its 330,000 employees. The focus of this research is to investigate how organizations can effectively implement wearable health technology as part of their wellness programs and increase employee engagement.
