Join the American Health Care Association, get a Fitbit.
That has been the policy of the adult-care industry association for at least five years, according to Rae Anne Davis, chief strategic officer and senior vice president at AHCA. Employees are given up to $150 to purchase a Fitbit wristband or watch to monitor their health. In addition, any staff member who walks 250,000 steps a month is given a $50 gift card to spend where he or she chooses.
“We give you a gift card for every month that you meet the goal,” Davis said. “And if you don’t meet it for two months in a row, then you have to purchase the Fitbit from us.”
