But how is it working? Are their noticeable benefits?
In the next episode of “On Demand’ series, Rob Lowe opens a segment that ventures into workplace fitness programs. Together with guests, the topic will be dissected and bisected to keep viewers informed on why these programs are essential. 'On Demand' has carved a niche in the educational programming space.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that 63% of employees working in all state and government departments had to access to fitness programs in 2017. 39% of workers in the private sector accessed the services as well. Some employers offer workers incentives and plan to encourage them to achieve their health goals. Most of the programs range from physical fitness, stress management, nutrition education, lifestyle, blood pressure, quitting smoking to weight control.
Despite efforts by the government to promote such programs, not all employees enroll or have access.
