The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has learned some shocking statistics about the American workforce.
- 59% of employees do not get adequate exercise
- At least 50% have high cholesterol
- 27% have cardiovascular disease
- More than a quarter are overweight by more than 20%
- 24% have high blood pressure
netlogx recognises these challenges, which is why we’ve provided a comprehensive Wellness Program for our team members since 2013.
We help our people reach their goals. Whether it’s weight loss, stopping smoking, getting fit or managing stress, we want our people to be happy.
The Wellness Committee, which meets every month, finds ways of creatively increasing awareness of wellness-related issues. Here are just some of their ideas to get netlogx healthier and happier:
Fitbit: Team members are invited to sign up for friendly competitions to increase their daily activity. They can do this in a variety of activities such as taking stairs rather than the elevator, parking further from the building, and meeting to walk in groups before or after work. netlogx also reimburses all new team members towards the cost of a basic Fit Bit.
Walking lunches or wellness walks: netlogx team members can relax in the fresh lunchtime air whilst exercising, in these walks led by one of our team members.
Guest Speakers: Wellness-related guest speakers are regularly invited to attend team building meetings to help promote healthy living and wellness.
Mini Marathon: Team members, led by Wellness Committee members, compete in local events such as the Indy 500 Mini Marathon, providing wellness and a great team-building activity.
