Wellness program covers food, fitness, families

Glatfelter Insurance Group employees spend their breaks soaking in the company sauna and enjoying quickie neck-and-shoulder massages.

As part of its wellness program, the York, Pa., organization gives employees free access to a personal trainer and on-site tennis, volleyball and basketball courts. Plus, employees and their families can use the in-house fitness center free.

They can use the steam room, sauna, treadmills and weight room, even in the evenings and on weekends. A massage therapist is available during lunch hours and after work for $10, 20-minute rub-downs.

Any employee who chooses to train in the gym or walk on the organization’s three-quarter-mile outdoor track during lunchtime gets an extra 15 minutes to eat, says HR VP Sandra Brown.

Employees can grab Weight Watchers-approved or heart-healthy meals at the company’s cafeteria, which is run by employees and features a salad bar, specialty sandwiches and soups. The firm heavily subsidizes food costs, so employees pay a discounted price.

The company also pays for smoking-cessation programs, pedometers and subscriptions to health magazines.

The cost of the wellness program is “significant,” admits Brown, but she says it “reinforces the fact that we care about our associates. Our hope is people are healthier and they are more productive and happy.”
