Paying Employees to Stay Healthy

More employers are willing to pay their employees for staying healthy. The percentage of companies paying people to ditch bad habits (especially eating junk food and not exercising enough) has gone from 53% in 2008 to 61% this year, according to a new study from human-resources consultant Watson Wyatt and the National Business Group on Health (NBGH). Nearly 6 in 10 (58%) now offer wellness programs, up from fewer than half (43%) in 2007.
