HEADLINE: Workplace Wellness Movement at a Standstill

February 8, 2014

In their attempt to improve the health and productivity of their employees and cut their skyrocketing healthcare costs, rather than negotiating for better service from the healthcare system they already overpay, employers have invested millions of dollars in wellness vendors to motivate their employees to confess to their health sins on specially designed questionnaires, submit to blood tests, stand on a scale, join health clubs, eat broccoli and view stress relief videos. Much to everyone’s’ surprise, these efforts have failed. Does anybody have a new plan?
