Incentivizing Good Health More and more employers are now closely monitoring the health of individual employees and offering incentives, and penalties, to encourage healthier choices. Is it big brother or a big benefit? And does the carrot or the stick encourage you to eat more carrot sticks? On the next Sound of Ideas, ideastream continues its coverage of obesity with a close look at employers' efforts to improve worker health. Join host Mike McIntyre Monday at 9 on 90.3.
