CONVERSATION STARTER: WE ASK, YOU ANSWER

CONVERSATION STARTER: WE ASK, YOU ANSWER

Share

The CVS pharmacy chain is the latest company to ask employees to have their weight and body mass index checked or else pay a hefty price: an extra 50 bucks a month, or $600 a year, for health insurance.  Do you agree with this trend?

 

27% YES

It’s great that employers care about their workers’ health.

 

73% NO

At work, what should matter are my skills, not my weight.

 

YES: “If they’re covering your insurance, then I think it’s fair.”

—Christine Moses

 

NO: “No way! I believe it’s a personal invasion.” —Nikki Cee

 

Join the conversation on Twitter (use #MCpoll) and Facebook (facebook.com/marieclaire).

 

Correction: Pitney Bowes does not require its employees to report health information or else incur a penalty fee, as incorrectly stated in July's "Conversation Starter" (page 81).

The company offers incentives to workers who adopt healthy habits.
