Many companies now have employee assistance programs that enable employees, free of charge, to improve their physical fitness, reduce stress, and learn ways to stop smoking. These programs increase worker productivity, reduce absenteeism, and lessen insurance costs for employee health care. Therefore, these programs benefit the company as well as the employee.

Which of the following, if true, most significantly strengthens the conclusion above?

(A) Physical fitness programs are often the most popular services offered to employees.
Knowing which programs are popular does not bear on what benefits the programs confer, so choice A is incorrect.

(B) Studies have shown that training in stress management is not effective for many people.
Options B and D indicate ways in which the programs can fail to provide the intended results, so neither of these is the correct answer. It weakens.

(C) Regular exercise reduces people’s risk of heart disease and provides them with increased energy.
Only this option is left, all the other 4 options are eliminated;
The conclusion is that the programs benefit both companies and employees. For companies, reducing employees’ risk of heart disease is likely to reduce insurance costs, and increasing employee energy is likely to increase worker productivity. For employees, the benefits of having a reduced risk of heart disease and of having increased energy are self-evident. Choice C is the best answer.

(D) Physical injuries sometimes result from entering a strenuous physical fitness program too quickly.
Options B and D indicate ways in which the programs can fail to provide the intended results, so neither of these is the correct answer. it weakens.

(E) Employee assistance programs require companies to hire people to supervise the various programs offered.
Having to hire additional personnel does not benefit a company, so choice E is not correct.
