Re: Roboboss says to take a walk
@SaneIT- That was the one that struck me as the oddest, too. But i have to say, I know a lot of companies that have created voluntary programs using Fitbits and other healthtrackers with an eye toward saving money on insurance.
It is possible, if these voluntary programs show enough cost savings we'll start doing it in a less vontary way. I think (I hope) that various laws including the Americans with Disabilities Act would allow for exceptions. But I think it is possible you could get into a situation where someone said, "you have to wear this. We want you to know the data. But we can't act on it."
At any rate, Gartner was fairly convincing tht companies have found ways to convince people to do things in the name of safety. It isn't impossible. But I agree with you that it is the least likely.
