From the Paper:"Introduction Nutrition and fitness programs in the workplace is a recent employee benefit strategy by employers as a way to reduce rising medical costs and lost days of productivity due to employee absences and underperforming work metrics due to illness or injury. Employers have found that they can substantially improve performance as well as overall employee motivation by offering nutrition and fitness programs as part of their comprehensive benefit programs: "motivating individual employees to change health-related behaviors in a health promotion program ...is necessary for ensuring the program's organizational-level success"(Harrison & Liska par.2)."
