"His participation means he must leave his office by 3:45 p.m. three times a week, requiring flexibility in his schedule."
What a novel way to "reduce absenteeism and make employees more productive".
AND he was given a "financial incentive" to leave work early three times a week.

The university has spent $40 million to build and maintain two on-campus wellness centers and offer programs to get its employees fit and healthy.
Forty million for two facilities ?

Right on schedule. Amitai Etzioni, COMMUNITARIAN GURU and counselor to world leaders ordains it and the media regurgitate it. They must get everyone in line you know. Or else.

If you think it's expensive to build facilities for exercise and wellness, look at the cost of the facilities required to try curing it.
Is it not better and less expensive to do things to prevent illness or injury, rather than wait until someone has problems? Yes, his schedule has to be flexible, but it does not mean he get's off early...it means his day begins earlier, or he returns to work and works later. An hour of exercise a few days a week makes me feel better...because I feel better, I'm more productive.

Where I work, they just figure out ways to get rid of older employees using cobbed up negative reviews.
This "wellness" movement is just an excuse to have your employer regulate every aspect of your behavior. Of course, they are only following the example of our nanny state in Washington.
Indentured servitude is alive and well, only it is The State and your employer that own you.
