Promoting Health and Wellness continues to be one of our most important initiatives and Women’s Health Week was a great opportunity to raise awareness and provide tools for our employees.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 28, 2014
May was filled with celebrations for mom’s, nurses, teachers, and an important vote for equal pay. This was no exception at one midtown firm who has a diverse population of women and a heavy focus on health and wellness in the workplace. They took a closer look at the overall health of all women by providing resources and information for their widespread community – which included internal employees, candidates, clients and social network followers. In accordance with the U.S Dept. of Health and Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, they kicked off the initiative during National Women’s Health Week.
Strategic Planning Officer Kiah Jones and her team selected five topics that impact health and wellness for women (and men!):
- Tips to stay healthy at any age
- Breast Cancer
- Skin Cancer
- Heart Disease
Internal efforts were kicked off with the distribution of gym reimbursement forms for healthy at any age, travel sunscreen for Skin Cancer Awareness, and a few morsels of dark chocolate for heart health. Their strong community of Facebook and LinkedIn followers also benefited by receiving an easy-to-download Fact Sheet about each topic, and were encouraged to share with their friends and family in an effort to help women succeed in and out of the workplace.
“Promoting Health and Wellness continues to be one of our most important initiatives and Women’s Health Week was a great opportunity to raise awareness and provide tools for our employees. Our approach is to focus on prevention measures that will hopefully provide families and the greater community with the knowledge to prevent chronic illness and reduce healthcare costs while building happier and healthier lives,” said Kiah Jones, SPO.
Their focus on health and wellness in the workplace will continue next month with Men’s Health Week activities such as “Eat This, Not That Sandwich Demo” by Chef Ross Greenburg, CIA ’99, and they will share information about participation in the Urbanathlon on October 25th.
