Half of large employers use incentives to encourage employees to quit smoking, lose weight or otherwise improve their health, and that number will leap to 74% next year, predicts HR consulting firm Watson Wyatt Worldwide.

Examples: credits toward insurance premiums or deductibles. They’re more effective than cash at getting employees to participate in health risk appraisals.

Tip: Tailor incentives so employees change behaviors that are important to your organization.
