This is because our program focuses on a lifestyle change, our goal is not only to achieve effective weight loss, but also to provide a foundation for long-term weight maintenance.

Engagement is the key
Engagement is an issue for many weight management programs, however weight loss may be unique in that many of your employees will want to actually participate! In addition to this, the ACA final rules on workplace wellness programs have set the maximum wellness reward amounts to 30% for either an Activity-Only or Outcome-Based Wellness Program.
