Healthy Employees = Happy Employees
Over the last 2 years DeNyse Companies has focused greatly on the Health of its employees. Research shows the more healthy employees are the more Happy & Productive your workforce will be. With the rising cost across the country for Health Insurance, we decided to do our best to combat this increase by investing in our employees. Jennifer & Allen DeNyse have always encouraged employees to live healthy, enjoy a good work/life balance, so with their support the Health & Wellness Committee worked together to get a plan together.
The areas of focus: Exercise, Nutrition, Stress Reduction, Overall Wellness
- Exercise – Boot Camp. Working with a local company Body’s By Bert, DeNyse provided all employees the opportunity to join an on-site 8 week, 1 hour Boot Camp. After the 8 week boot camp, many of the employees have continued to work with Body’s By Bert to continue their exercise program.
- Nutrition – Healthy Eating. We moved out many of the unhealthy snacks in our vending machine and replaced it with a HealthySnacks Machine. We also provide employees to quarterly Lunch & Learns with speakers that discuss different programs on healthy eating.
- Stress Reduction – Yoga, of Course. DeNyse provided an on-site Yoga instructor, Jennifer Clay, to come to our office twice a week for 8 weeks. During Lunch you could find employees outside on the lawn enjoying the fresh air, and relaxation of Yoga.
The goal of the Health & Wellness committee is simple, encourage co-workers to increase their Health & Wellness. What type of wellness are you doing? What could we add to our program? Let us know.
