It is All About Costs

Fitness guru says healthy workplace is good business:
"As in vogue as wellness is in corporate America today, many companies do little more than pay lip service to it, says Houston's new health guru, William Baun. He's incoming chair of Mayor Bill White's Wellness Council in addition to his day job managing employee wellness at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

'People don't have time to be healthy at home anymore, which is why wellness has to be addressed in the workplace,' he says."
I guess this is a win-win. Being well reduces healthcare costs and absenteeism. Plus, the employee is healthy.
