CNN Profiles VA Company's Wellness Program

CNN reports on the workplace wellness program at Quest Diagnostics, a Virginia company whose "Healthy Quest" program saves $4.80 for every dollar invested in it.

"Healthy Quest is designed to focus on health issues that 'drive a lot of costs, and drive a lot of lost productivity,' like obesity, smoking and stress, [Steve Burton, vice president of health and wellness services at Quest Diagnostics] said." Since its inception, "the company has benefited from lower health care costs, fewer sick days and more satisfied employees," he said.
