Lose Weight, Cash In

Mansfield, OH -Talk about an incentive to lose weight.

A Mansfield automotive supplier is rewarding employees who shed extra pounds - and keep the weight off.

Jay Industries pays half the $100 dollar fee when an employee joins Weight Watchers. The company will then pay the rest if the ten-week program reduces the person's body weight by at least ten percent.

And that's not all!

Workers who stay at their target weight for at least 90-days will get a $100 dollar bonus - and they get the same reward if they maintain their goal for six months - and then one year.

The company says if employees lose weight - it should reduce sick days and medical costs - so it's healthier for the company's bottom line.
