Your Healthy Family: Paying employees to exercise may not work

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

Paying employees to exercise may not work, but the reverse just might.
Researchers compared the results of employee programs offering financial incentives to walk 7,000 steps a day.
Programs that paid workers for achieving their daily goal was no more effective than having no incentive at all.
But programs that gave cash up front, which was taken away if workers missed their goal, were 50-percent more successful.
