With less stress and more healthy habits, our employees are happier and more focused...
Waltham, Mass. (PRWEB) June 01, 2015
Harvey Building Products announced today it has pledged support for, and will participate in, Employee Wellbeing Month, taking place throughout June 2015. This initiative, originally known as National Employee Wellness Month and now in its seventh year, helps business leaders across the world learn new ways to engage employees in healthy habits and lifestyles while celebrating their successes. Hundreds of companies around the world and thousands of employees have pledged their support for this important initiative.
Company culture plays a critical role in employee health and wellbeing, driving productivity and helping organizations improve their bottom lines. Employee Wellbeing Month will promote and celebrate workplaces like Harvey Building Products that are taking steps to encourage employees to create and sustain healthy habits that produce long-lasting results.
During the month, companies like Harvey will actively promote and showcase how company culture can improve employees’ wellbeing, engagement and productivity. Harvey’s Healthy Choices, Healthy Lives wellness program was introduced to employees in 2011 and has included wellness motivators such as a fitness tracking program, health club and fitness reimbursements, smoking cessation reimbursement and a newly instituted tobacco-free premium differential for health insurance. They are looking forward to re-energizing employees during Employee Wellbeing Month in a variety of ways.
“When we decided to implement a wellness program for our employees, we knew it had to be comprehensive and diverse to address the many different facets of our employees’ lives,” said Harvey Building Products' President, Jim Barreira. “In addition to the more popular programs like activity tracking and smoking cessation, we also provide financial education workshops and have an employee assistance program to address other stressful work-life balance challenges that our employees might face. With less stress and more healthy habits, our employees are happier and more focused on their jobs. Everyone becomes more productive and it’s a true win-win”.
