Troy, MI (PRWEB) January 09, 2012
Global LT, a leading provider of Language & Cultural Training, Translation and Expatriate Destination Services jump starts employees "New Year, New Me" resolutions with onsite Zumba classes and healthier vending machine options.
“Everyone has a health goal as a resolution and our office is no different. But what makes us different is that we strive to help our employees meet their goals, whatever they may be. That’s what family does, and we are a family owned business,” says Lisette Poletes, CEO of Global LT.
Global LT put together a 2012 health plan as part of their strategy to encourage and engage employees. The 6 week program, starting Monday January 9, 2012, will allow employees a chance to workout on sight with a certified Zumba instructor, get healthy protein shakes or bars from the vending machine as well as sign up for desktop shoulder and neck massages.
“Making health an accessible option is what every employee needs. Leave your excuses at home! You can grab a healthy snack from the vending machine and join the classes during the week, without ever having to step in a gym. We have a lot of health nuts in here that will keep us that are less motivated fired up so it's a win win situation,” says Kristin Lambert, Marketing Manager.
Strategic health planning options that were considered for employees ranged from discounted gym memberships to extremes like treadmill desk stations. Some programs already instituted such as free Weight Watchers or pedometers to employees are still in effect and will remain an option for those who qualify.
Research shows that employees who have access to working out at their job have higher morale and are more energized and less stressed.
