ABSTRACT
The article reports on the HR issue discussed by Michael Parker of recruitment firm CLP Resources during the 2007 annual convention of the SHRM in Las Vegas, Nevada. Parker discussed the advantage of investing in in-house gyms by companies rather than offering subsidized memberships. He cited setting up a wellness program while serving as HR director at Richmond Behavioral Health Authority in Virginia. He said that the scheme resulted in a reduction in employer-paid health insurance premiums for several years and led to savings.
