Last week, we asked eNews readers if their employer encourages employees to exercise, such as by offering a fitness room or wellness programs. Results were split evenly between yes and no.
“Our company has a wellness program that gives the employees the opportunity to earn cash rebates on their health insurance upon successful completion of a series of goals.”
“My company has instructors come in and offers a boot camp and yoga every Tuesday and Thursday. We can also earn extra vacation for exercise and healthy living.”
“I had two heart attacks, as a result of diabetes. I was unaware of this side effect. Everyone should educate themselves medically to avoid these problems. No one else will; not even your doctor!”
“It’s not the company's responsibility to provide fitness programs. The fat, lazy employees must take it upon themselves to get in shape.”
