  • Weight-loss competitions at work have pros, cons
    Employee weight-loss competitions are a popular wellness tool for companies because they get quick results and reduce health care costs, but experts say they can encourage unhealthy eating and cause tension among team members. Cornell University professor John Cawley says programs that offer financial incentives work best but warns that employees tend to regain weight after the incentives stop.

  • Why smart bosses start book clubs
    One way to foster engagement is to ask your entire team to read a particular business or management tome, writes Baron Christopher Hanson. Turning your company into a reading group gives you a chance to understand employees better and allows them to share their passions and ideas more freely. "Everyone in the company is guaranteed to have something in common to talk about going forward," Hanson writes. SmartBrief/SmartBlog on Leadership (1/8) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story

  • If corporations are people, can they carpool?
    A California man fined $478 for driving solo in a car pool lane says his ticket should be thrown out because he had his company's articles of incorporation with him. If corporations have status as legal people, he told a court, then they should count as passengers for car pooling purposes. A traffic court upheld the ticket, but the man says he hopes to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Wired.com/Threat Level blog (1/9) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story
