And more than half would do so in exchange for a little boost in their year-end bonus or a reduced health insurance premium. The results were part of Cornerstone OnDemand's 2014 The State of Workplace Productivity Report, conducted between Aug. 21 and Sept. 8, 2014 and involving some 2,009 full-time U.S. employees.

WHEN Kenneth Treleani was told last summer that he was suffering from high blood pressure, his doctor prescribed medicine to tackle the condition. He also made another recommendation: that Mr Treleani invest in a wireless wrist monitor that takes his blood pressure at various times during the day and sends the data wirelessly to an app on his smartphone, which dispatches the readings to his physician.
