A healthier lifestyle is a New Year’s resolution for many, and employers are increasingly partners in that goal. With an eye toward reducing health care costs, many workplaces offer wellness programs, including help quitting smoking and incentives for gym memberships. Alternative therapies like acupuncture are also increasingly covered, and some states even require they be included in healthcare plans. We explore how approaches to health in the workplace are changing.
