Having healthy employees reflects a healthy company.
Everybody wants to live healthy. As a matter of fact, the number of people who eat healthy have increased in the recent years. Unfortunately, not many people follow through with exercise. Workers, specifically, practically don’t have time to work out. However, this company motivates their employees in a very effective way—paying them.
A company in Xi’An, China is paying their employees 100 yuan ($20.40) for every kilogram they lose. Yes, you get fit and healthy, and at the same time, you get to earn a little extra. However, each employee needs to lose at least three kilograms first to qualify for the incentive.
The employee said: “I used to eat meat every single meal. Now, I only have mushrooms and eggs for lunch.”
Apparently, she has earned 2000 yuan ($407) after losing 20 kilograms in just two months. Unfortunately, one employee has not qualified to join: their own boss.
He said: “The results of the programme has exceeded my expectations. But the programme hasn’t worked for me. I don’t even qualify for the bonus yet.”
