According to the study, corporations are becoming creative about improving employee health. For instance, more than three-quarters (78 percent) of the companies in the survey offer a nurse line for answering medical questions, and 72 percent offer health-risk appraisals. A little less than half (42 percent) are instituting programs that focus on reducing obesity among employees, and 23 percent have opened on-site clinics at some locations to offer employees easy-access to health care services. Fourteen percent have opened on-site pharmacies.
