Wearables are increasingly important for keeping employees healthy

Wearable tech is becoming an increasingly important tool for managers that strive to support the physical and emotional wellbeing of their employees. So much so that by 2020, more than 75 million wearables like smartwatches and cardiac monitors will be used in offices worldwide, while the enterprise wearables market will top $60 billion in revenue in 2022.

What’s more, Gartner predicts that by 2021, around 90 per cent of all corporate wellness programs are set to include a fitness tracker. Healthier employees improve the company’s bottom line, as they’re more productive and take fewer sick days. And constantly monitoring vital bodily functions can uncover hidden dangers and enable people to promptly address any physical problem.
