Free gifts always go down well with employees but what if those gifts could also cut your company’s healthcare costs?

    A most interesting time for sure. A most interesting gift from an employer to the employees. I can see the benefits this can bring to some industries where fitness is key to getting the job done. Of course in the wrong hands and industry, does this affect privacy of the employee? Does this become an accessory with the discount for the membership at the gym?

    I think this is a worthwhile benefit. Those who exercise, sleep better, eat better and have more energy, and therefore productivity at work. Breaking this down to an ROI is difficult. A strategy like this can have longer-term effects such as creating a culture where fitness / health is common at work and supported. So over time the general health of the organization will rise higher than just the short-term gains of a FitBit program.
