IBI’s research agenda is developed annually to help show the link between healthy employees and their value to business in improved productivity. To focus our efforts, we surveyed our members to determine which research topics they would find most valuable to their organization’s health and productivity efforts. This report shares the survey results and analysis, which would ultimately formulate IBI’s 2021 research agenda.
In the first quarter of 2021, IBI has begun working with its Research Committee representatives to establish Issue Groups for the top priority projects. Group members will advise on specific research questions, help identify potential data sources, and serve as subject matter experts to provide employer guidance in the final research products.
