As related in a story in The Guardian, health insurance company Humana has introduced a product called Humana Integrated Total Wellbeing that relied on the results of an employee happiness study developed by Kim Cameron. Using the survey, Humana was able to predict the impact that “engaged” employees have on healthcare costs.

Cameron’s study found that “an increase of one point on the survey equates to a savings of $2,552 in medical costs per year per employee. With those kinds of savings, even a company with 100 employees might find such a strategy worth deploying.”
