However, a new study suggests that managers must be provided with incentives to focus on creating a healthier work environment.

Increase in employee wellness and motivation can be achieved by tying 10 percent of managerial salary increases to health initiatives, the findings, published in the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, suggested.

The initiative requires tapping into the manager's ability to lead his or her team to wellness and can, as a result, have a big payoff in terms of creating a culture of health at the workplace, and could tip the scales toward healthier employees.

The study surveyed 270 adults with manager roles and found that 68 percent supported the idea of being evaluated by their employee wellness actions.
