My Employer Taking Health Seriously

My employer, which I’ve noted in the past has taken positive steps to improve the health of its employees (here) is at it again. Now, I’ve found out that they have quietly been working with unhealthy employees to try to improve their overall health. Last spring we filled out a health survey that determined our health in several categories. Evidentally, they’ve singled out people from that survey who need a helping hand and once a week they bring in an expert from the Cleveland Clinic to teach them health and fitness tips. I only know of a few people in the program (it’s kept pretty quiet, I assume to avoid embarassment), but overall the results have been amazing.

Although they are probably concerned with the bottom line primarily (healthcare costs are ridiculous), I applaud this effort. My employer is taking wellness and health seriously and actually doing more than just talking. I’m incredibly proud of them!
