Today, many employers have considered offering a reward or penalty to encourage employees to reduce their BMI. Yet weight bias is prevalent in the workplace even before incentives for BMI reduction are introduced. This white paper, derived from a presentation given by Dr. Rebecca Puhl and Dr. Jennifer Lovejoy, discusses weight bias, reviews well-known examples of employers who offer incentives tied to BMI, and offers practical strategies to promote a supportive worksite environment.
