Randomized-Controlled Study: Wellness Programs Don’t Work

Evil HR Lady

Eating better and exercising more are common sense things that most of us should do. And so it makes sense that a program at work that encourages these things will help us be healthier, which will, in turn, mean we’ll show up to work and not need quite so much health care. That’s a common thought and that’s what previous studies have shown. But, a new study flips that on its head.
