Small businesses get creative to cut health cost
USA Today

Cyndi Takacs went the extra miles last year to earn additional paid time off, and she plans to do the same this year. She and other employees at Excelas, a medical consulting firm with 44 staffers in Cleveland, get one extra hour of paid time off for every 33,000 steps they take during the first three months of the year, for up to three extra days of paid leave. To meet the goal last year, she did laps around the parking lot at lunch, and she took the dogs out for an extra walk at night.
