We're fat, lazy, stressed and generally unhealthy. So whose fault is it?

We talk about (workplace) wellness a lot, and I'm still not entirely convinced there's anything revolutionary happening on that front. That's because, as I've said before, I've never witnessed it happening firsthand at my workplace. Though apparently it's happening some places, right? I mean, bswift, for one, claims that 83 percent of large employers now provide wellness programs, up from just 52 percent in 2012. But I digress.

My reluctance in demanding wellness from companies stems from the fact that I'm all for personal responsibility. I'm not necessarily one to say workplaces should be responsible for my health, just like they're not responsible for my personal relationships, my crappy shopping habits and my generally negative disposition.
