Ten-Year Comparative Study: WELCOA National Wellness Compensation Survey
PRESENTED BY: WELCOA
WELCOA’s National Wellness Compensation Survey (NWCS) conducted in 2012 is believed to be the first-ever compensation survey conducted on a cross-section of worksite wellness and affiliated health management personnel. Since then, the field of worksite well-being, and the professional roles and responsibilities of the career track, have changed dramatically.

It’s time to take another deep dive.

WELCOA’s 2022 National Wellness Compensation Survey shines a light on the key demographic, occupational, financial, worksite health management, professional development, and quality of life insights reported by survey respondents. The report includes a 10-year comparative analysis of the 2012 survey results, as well as implications and applications of the insights.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the data that was collected to assess the growth and development of the corporate wellness industry as it relates to professional compensation.
  • Articulate the specific growth and insights from the past ten years related to compensation of wellness professionals.
