The award honors LaunchPoint for encouraging its employees to eat better and stay active through its Swellness Program, which promotes, “It’s swell to be well.” LaunchPoint deepened its commitment to the program in 2015 with the addition of a “Swellness Culture Committee,” comprised of employees who develop and cultivate fresh Swellness initiatives.
“We are honored our Swellness program is recognized by the American Heart Association again with the Fit-Friendly Worksite Award,” said Terrence Ryan, LaunchPoint CEO. “As a healthcare focused business, we encourage a healthier and fit workforce while simultaneously building a culture of camaraderie among members of our organization.”

- “Wednesday Walking Club” where employees are invited to walk one of two mapped courses on the grounds surrounding the LaunchPoint office
- Wellness-based Corporate Service Awards such as gym bags, massages, bikes, fitness club or class, or a Fitbit exercise monitoring system
