Lose weight, gain time off and some extra spending money. It's proving a reliable formula for the wellness program at City Bank.

In 2013, bank employees and their spouses earned incentives totaling more than $120,000 and more than 4,000 hours of paid time off for exercising, losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight.

Participation is made easier for employees thanks to all of the bank's efforts to encourage activity. A walking track winds through the top floor of City Bank's headquarters building, and employees can spend 30 minutes a day there while on the clock. Similar options are available for employees in branches and the bank's call center.

Wellness activities are not the only way to earn time off either. Employees can extend their weekends or vacations by volunteering. More than 150 employees, including the bank's chairman, Curtis Griffith, take turns delivering meals on wheels in the Lubbock area.

City Bank, founded in 1941 as First Bank of Morton, operates more than 20 branches in Texas and New Mexico. The name changed to City Bank in 1984.
