"cbs this morning" has partnered with the professional networking site linkedin for our continuing series "work in progress" which explores the future of the american work force. this morning we're looking at employers' use of high-tech wellness programs to keep track of workers' nutrition, exercise, and sleep. about six million employees worldwide reportedly receive a
8:18 am
fitness tracker as a part of work wellness programs last year. that's an increase before 4 million in two years. 21% of companies that offer health insurance collected data from the wearable devices in 2018. the previous year it was 14% according to a kaiser family foundation survey. jessi hempel is linkedin senior editor at large. good morning. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> what are companies trying to accomplish with these dwietevic? >> companies have two goals. the first is not a surprise -- they want to save money. if people are healthier, they will cost less over time through health insurance. but also, this is a new trendy thing that employees are asking for. they want to be able to offer it, and it's not hard to do. >> some of the incentives are worthwhile. right? >> yeah. there was one company in texas, that the "washington post" reported on last week, where you could earn as much as $1,000 back over the course of the year. that's a lot of money to the average morning.
8:19 am
>> and are any of the workers penalized in a carrot-stick scenario where they may get incentives if they work out, but if they don't, what happens? >> that's a great question. for the most part, these programs are opt-in. you choose, and you are rewarded. when the question of penalty comes up, employees tend to react badly to that. >> imagine. >> literal car on the and sticks, if you eat a -- carrots and sticks, if you eat a lot of carrots, you won't get the stick. what are you opting in to, though, with respect to sharing data and how much with your employer? >> that is exactly the question that every viewer needs to ask before they sign up for one of these programs because here's the thing -- they are all different now. there isn't sort of one o out-of-the-box program. most are offered through a health insurer, like aetna signed a contract with apple to roll out a program. when that's the case, hipaa for the most part, if you're getting a fitness tracker through your health insurer, hipaa is going to mean that your health insurer is not going to pass that information back to your
8:20 am
employer. but if that health tracker is coming through a company that is not a health care company, that question is still up in the air, we don't know. >> hipaa is the law that regulates what kind of private information can be -- >> exactly. >> what are the questions that employees should be asking employers before they sign up? >> there is really only one question. and you've got to keep it front and center. that is who gets to see my data. and by extension, like how can they use my data. and this -- there is an interesting one, and it comes up with every tech device. there's a short-term answer to that question, and then there are long-term, unintended consequences. it is up to everybody who makes a choice to use one of these to decide the balance for her or himself. in the short term, this might be great. maybe your information is protected by hipaa, as we were talking about, and you have the sense that you are in control of your information. but none of cuss guarantee that things aren't -- none of us can guarantee that things aren't going to change. that federal regulation isn't going to change, that what is
8:21 am
allowed to be shared isn't going to change. you have to be comfortable with whatever happens. >> or that employers begin to mandate that you share your health data with them before you can get insurance or the type of insurance that they pay for. >> that's exactly right. and you know, it's a question that people are talking about a ton. i have seen this come up on linkedin. we asked people wonrecently wher they thought the trackers were a good idea. frankly, the answer was mixed down the middle. there are people concerned about privacy, and others like, nah, a great benefit. >> the future. jessi hempel. thank you so much. >> thank you. ahead, new signs that dairy farmers in one of our biggest dairy states are in crisis. you're watching "cbs this morning." ♪ that's a cut.

welcome back to "cbs this morning." right now it's time to show some of the morning's headlines from around the globe. "usa today" reports dairy farmers are in crisis, and it could change the state of wisconsin forever. last year wisconsin lost almost 700 dairy farms at an unprecedented rate of nearly two a day. milk prices adjusted for inflation were almost the low nest half a century. alternative beverages such as skpo soy and almond have flooded the markets and foreign markets for american dairy products have shrunk in response to tariffs. >> think how devastating that is for a family business. >> gosh. "bloomberg" ranks the healthiest nations.
8:31 am
it's based on life expectancy, environmental factors, and risk factors like smoking. number one was spain. the report cited the public and preventive health care and its mediterranean diet. spain is followed by italy, then iceland. the u.s. dropped one place to number 35. life expectancy in the u.s. has been trending lower due to draeths from drug over-- deaths from drug overdoses and suicides. and britain's "guardian" reports saudi arabia pointed its first female ambassador to the u.s. princess rema bandar replaces the brother of the crown prince who was appointed vice defense minister. the reshuffle follows fallout from the murder of "washington post" contributor jamal khashoggi. the saudi government has denied involvement in khashoggi's murder and a saudi consulate last year -- in a saudi consulate last year. another powerful man faces a legal reckoning over alleged sexual abuse in a new example of the influence of documentaries off screen. r&b singer r. kelly's arrest on friday on ten sexual abuse charges came just weeks after the series "surviving r. kelly"
8:32 am
debuted on lifetime. three of the alleged victims are minors. kelly denies the charges. dream hampton is an executive producer of "surviving r. kelly," and contributor jody kantor is one of the journalists reporting on harvey weinstein -- journalists whose reporting on harvey weinstein led to the me too movement. did you ever expect r.le whi r. face charges? >> i didn't. i remember when i talked to the other producers about what an ideal vote come would be and i was thinking about blackfish, that film that made people turn away from an amusement park. and i thought that people kind of having all of the facts laid out would mean that they wouldn't be able to so vociferously support him and talk about his innocence and/or have their heads in the sand about who he was. no, i honestly didn't think we'd
8:33 am
be here. >> jodi, what does that tell us about the power of documentaries in the midst of this me too movement? >> if you look at this particular documentary that dream made, to me the power is the completeness of the work. it's an in-depth psychological profile. the number of victims interviewed is really stunning. there's a lot of context about the movie industry. and so i think whether it's in a newspaper article or a documentary or a podcast, what matters is the strength of the reporting, the victims' voices, we're in an era where the definition of truth is challenged. whether this comes across as authentic and believable. >> we also see the me too movement transcend now from hollywood to the music industry, as well. bryan adams a few weeks ago and now r. kelly. do you think this is the tip of the iceberg? are we going to see more music come out of the music industry as a whole? >> it hasn't stopped generally. it's been how many months since we broke the weinstein story? i think what's powering this
8:34 am
whole thing is new information, more people coming forward, accountability leads to more accountability because women are more willing to come forward when they believe that people are listening and that something may happen, and actually, weinstein and r. kelly are in parallel positions now, right. there are criminal charges against both of them. we're awaiting the legal outcome on both of those cases, and i think that these are going to be the two criminal trials that people really look to for months to come. and the reckoning will continue in the courtroom. >> i think part of the thing that you exposed with weinstein, too, was the enablers. dream, you, too, in this documentary, talking about those who were the -- the bodyguards that tracked down these young girls for them. what did you learn about the system that essentially supports and enables this behavior? >> the ecosystem partly just -- partly explains why he can't make bail. he has gone broke holding women in his studio.
8:35 am
like this lifestyle that he has, moving women from state to state, girls really from state to state where their parents can't find them, he's gone broke doing this. he can't post $100,000 bail, having made more than $200 million in his career. i mean, a 52-year-old r&b singer is often a sad song, like financially. you know, there are plenty of examples of artists that go broke in their 50s. but this is very particular to him settling lawsuits, to him, you know, having to manage six and seven girls at a time. >> dream, tell me what you think has changed about those who came forward, who spoke for this documentary but then who might speak going forward. there were a lot who didn't want to appear on camera because they were worried about what would happen. >> right. we had to interview so many women who corroborated off camera but didn't want to come before the cameras. they knew they'd be disbelieved, dragged on twitter. and that happened to all of the survivors who came on camera. so we had a lot of women that we
8:36 am
talked to because he's been doing this almos 30 years who would corroborate details from the other women but wouldn't come on camera themselves. and then when kim fox, she and n illinois, the d.a. in illinois, and then also a prosecutor in atlanta asked for more women to come forward, that happens. the floodgates open, and both of those prosecutors are getting those calls. >> jodi, people may not realize how much time it takes reporting and also giving assurance to these women that their stories will be told fairly, and getting that body of evidence. what's changed since you started reporting? are there more people feeling somewhat comfortable in talking? are we reaching an inflection point? >> i think we're seeing the problem in a way that we never have before. you can't solve a problem that you can't see. one of the many things that these two cases, r. kelly and weinstein, have in common is the use of skretsecret settlements ndas to silence women. i want to throw a moral question
8:37 am
out there that we have not solved as a society. are we okay with confidential settlements for allegations of sexual abuse? if your sister experienced something really bad at work and then she was offered $300,000 to never speak with anybody again about it, should she take the money? on the one hand it might be her only form of rekpens. on the other hand, she would have to swear to never tell her own story, to never talk about something very important that happened to her, and she might be enabling an abuser by doing that. we have not had a discussion about that in society. and decided how we feel about it. >> what's unfortunate is the burden should not be on the woman when it comes to these decisions. >> well, what we see with settlements is individually they can often make stones a woman. they can -- make sense to a woman. they can feel like a best option. collectively they're a problem. >> all right. to be continued. thank you so much for joining us, dream and jodi. >> thank you. tomorrow on "cbs this morning," director dan reed will

8:43 am
jan, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, john. you know, this is really a story about perseverance and believing that you can survive. hilla hlaree nelson and jim morrison are some of the most elitelite skiers. they've overcome physical and emotional challenges to reach the pinnacle of their sport. they invited us to their home in telluride, colorado, and then had another challenge -- getting me to the top of one of america's most scenic ski resorts so we could see how they did it. >> this is one of the reasons i love being in the mountains is it's beautiful. >> reporter: the peaks of the san juan mountains are some of america's highest. here at 12,000 feet -- should we see where you train? >> yeah. >> reporter: adventurers hilaree nelson and jim morrison will show where they trained for the impossible. you got to take care of me now. for a novice skier like me, even a flat bed at the top of telluride ski resort was
8:44 am
daunting. >> take a deep breath. >> reporter: it was the only way to see this view of where the couple pursued a dream. >> that's another that shoots down through the rock face, and we ski that quite a bit. >> reporter: you ski through that thing? >> yes. it's called side country skiing. >> reporter: their focus was half a world away -- soaring five miles in the sky. >> that little peak in the back is the fourth highest mountain in the world right next to everest there. >> reporter: that so-called "little peak" was a 28,000-foot mountain in the him lalayahimal. last fall after three years of preparation, they not only climbed up it -- >> this is hard -- >> reporter: they did something no one had ever done before. >> up top -- top of the world. >> reporter: they skied down it. 7,000 feet down its face. >> just ski ed to the face in oe
8:45 am
go. >> in front of the most variable, challenging, death-defying conditions i've ever experienced. >> reporter: drops in uncharted, unimaginable conditions, no room for error. >> the smallest thing that goes wrong with your plan can mean a big difference between your, ventual success or failure. >> or life and death. >> yeah. >> reporter: you have to wonder why. what drives people like nelson and morrison to push their limits. nelson grew up playing sports before skiing became her passion. >> i think there's something really powerful about being persistent at something. i think it's really important to live outside of this box we create and tell us what you can and can't do. >> reporter: now a mother two of boys, she sees her career as a lesson for life. >> more than anything, they
8:46 am
understood the lesson is that it's really hard to take that first step. able to do it, but at least you tried. then you know how far you can push yourself a little bit further the next time. >> eyes hurt. louns hurt -- lungs hurt more. >> reporter: making their way up came with suffering. but for morrison, the pain was nothing compared to the emotional trauma he went through seven years ago. a trauma that's driven him to scale the highest peaks. >> i lost my wife and children in a plane crash in 2011, and my world ended in an instant. >> reporter: did you ever think you can't go on? >> yes. >> reporter: how do you get through that? >> i found a way to get out in the mountains and do something that i love and do something that i'm passionate about and do something physically active that helped me process my loss.
8:47 am
>> reporter: four years after the tragedy while climbing in nepal, morrison ned nelson who'd gone through a painful divorce. months later they began a romantic relationship. >> i'd give anything in the world to not have had him go through what you've gone through, but not having that ability to take those things away has made us who we are. >> there's everest -- >> reporter: morrison's path to healing came full circle last spring while he office a peak, mt. everest. >> i spent about 4 5 minutes climbing by myself in this place that i was totally connected to my kids. i felt like i was closer to them than i'd been in years. >> reporter: did you talk to them? >> i talked to them a little bit. i talked to myself. i giggled and laughed, and i was totally alone at 28,000 feet. >> reporter: like you're that close to heaven. >> it was like i was on the edge of heaven.
8:48 am
>> reporter: a few months later, morrison was back on the roof of the world on lothse. this time, his companion was the woman defining the next chapters of his life. >> we had a lot of life to live before we found each other and found our connection and a lot of good things happen, and a lot of bad things happen for both of us. those are things we share and understand each other. we're probably better climbing partners and skiing partners because of it. >> i think we've been through enough experiences that we really appreciate just being in the moment. >> reporter: and those moments now shared together whether on lothse or here in the rocky mountain back yard are pretty spectacular. hilaree and jim say there have been times when they look at each other and ask can't we just be climbing partners and not boyfriend and girlfriend. more often they say it's their deep personal bond that really came from the intense tragedy and pain that makes them
