A North Carolina study released this month by the
Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine suggests people will lose
weight for money.
Unlike providing onsite fitness centers or improving
offerings in the company cafeteria, cash rewards, even in small amounts,
provide a company with a guaranteed return, researchers said. They would only
have to pay cash if an employee lost weight. The study involved approximately
200 overweight employees at several colleges in North Carolina.
