This posting is for folks who found us via award-winning journalist Sharon Begley’s “Wellness Award Goes to Workplace Where Many Health Measures Got Worse.” (Note that no one has ever challenged any of her two dozen awards.)
In the event that you are new to the Wellsteps./Boise School District debacle, here is the back story, very quickly.
- Wellsteps lied about savings.
- I predicted the combination of lying, incompetence and cronyism would win them a Koop Award.
- Wellsteps said: It’s fun to get fat. It’s fun to be lazy.“
- Wellsteps showed a complete failure to understand wellness.
And so, inevitably…
Wellsteps won a Koop Award. Ron Goetzel and Seth Serxner have never let their friends down in the past, so why should integrity, competence and facts stand in the way this time?
