Wellness Programs Boost Bottom Line

“There are other incentives. Alyeska has access to an on-site gym for its employees but the facility isn't available to dependents, so the company subsidizes health club membership fees for the family, Brady said. Participation in other programs, like Weight Watchers and smoking cessation, also are subsidized, sometimes heavily. Overall, it's the mutual support among employees in the program that produces results, Brady said. Weight-loss competitions and other kinds of contests, usually with prizes, builds morale and makes it fun, he said.”
