Workplace Fitness

I always knew this would catch on:

"In 2013, about 2,000 companies offered their employees fitness trackers, according to technology research company Gartner. In 2014, this rose to around 10,000.
By 2016, the firm predicts that most large companies - those with more than 500 employees - in both the US and Western Europe will offer fitness trackers with their programmes."

{"A lot of companies view [these schemes] as giving them a competitive advantage," says Ryan Martin, wearable technology analyst at 451 Research.}
{"They can improve overall employee wellness through data collection. They're not just making workplaces better, but decreasing unplanned leaves of absence."}
