Financial Incentives for Weight Loss in the Workplace

Source: NPR, March 7, 2013 There has been an explosion of interest in workplace wellness programs that offer financial incentives, according to Kevin Volpp, in an interview with NPR. He commented on the results of a recent study conducted at the Mayo Clinic that offered financial incentives in the form of lotteries and deposits. In this study, the incentive group lost an average of 9 pounds, which Volpp considers to be promising, but may not make a big difference in their health.
