Employees at Ameriwood completed a 10-week Weight Watchers at Work program recently. The 41 particapants lost 700.2 pounds during the program. Ameriwood paid a portion of the fees, and employees covered the balance. Employees who lost 5 percent or more of their weight were reimbursed. According to Rosie Arbogast, human resources manager at Ameriwood, 29 particapants lost 5 percent of their weight and 10 lost 10 percent.
