Employers have got to understand the value in supporting workplace wellness--every dollar invested in a wellness program is an investment in the company's bottom line and in our country's economy
Toledo, OH (PRWEB) October 31, 2007
Roemer Insurance is participating in WellBiz and wants to make sure that everyone knows it. WellBiz is the new pilot workplace wellness program sponsored by The Healthy Communities Foundation, Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce and Harris HealthTrends. The company, which currently has 100% employee participation in the three-year program, hired an artist to create a revised logo that reads: "A Proud WellBiz Company," said Rocky Roemer, president and CEO of the Toledo-based insurance agency. "We plan to promote the WellBiz program and our involvement in it very aggressively."
For Roemer Insurance this is more than just a promotion.
"As insurance and risk management professionals we are all too well aware of the costs of poor health in the workplace, whether the workplace is an office like ours or behind the wheel of a large truck, like many of our clients," he continued.
According to Roemer, most employers are seeing regular increases in their health insurance costs. Healthy workers are more productive, absent less often and are less expensive to insure.
"Employers have got to understand the value in supporting workplace wellness--every dollar invested in a wellness program is an investment in the company's bottom line and in our country's economy," he stated.
Roemer Insurance believes being identified as a proud WellBiz company in its promotional efforts will lead to further discussion of the benefits of workplace wellness.
Plans for the new logo include placement on its corporate website, http://www.roemer-insurance.com , on its small fleet division website, http://www.insuremyrig.com and in its sales materials. Future applications may include T-shirts, ball caps, coffee mugs and bumper stickers. Roemer Insurance has made the logo artwork available to the program sponsors and other participants. Rocky Roemer expects to start seeing the "Proud WellBiz Company" logo all over town as support for the program continues to build over time.
Roemer Insurance is in the final stages of reconstruction of an on-site employee fitness center, scheduled for completion in early December. The company is also providing employee flu shots on-site and free of charge and offering flu shots to family members at a reduced rate.
