Health promotion: keeping employees physically fit.

More employers are promoting healthy life-styles for their employees. Among 618 surveyed employers, 76% are making efforts to "manage" employee health.

Educating employees on modifying unhealthy behavior (smoking, bad eating habits) remains the most prevalent activity. However, a significant proportion of employers are now taking more active steps -such as providing on-site exercise facilities or subsidizing health club memberships-to promote good health.

Of the 470 employers in the survey offering health-promotion activities, below are the percentages offering or providing subsidies for exercises classes and facilities (percentages include multiple responses).
