Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 14, 2013
May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, an annual event used to educate Americans about the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle. Healthentic strives to give employers the power to keep their staff fit and active all year round with their easy to implement and track wellness initiatives.
While May’s focus of physical fitness and sports can be used as a catalyst to introduce a physical fitness program to a company, or an individual, it is important to learn how to incorporate healthy living into daily life. Since many Americans spend a majority of their waking hours at the workplace, introducing workplace health initiatives is an easy and fun way to improve the well being of a group of people at one time.
Healthentic offers several strategies in their Wellness Decision Engine tool which empower their employees to enjoy physical activities at work. A sample of these initiatives include:
· Comprehensive 10-week physical activity program,
· A policy to encourage stairs usage in lieu of the elevator,
· Creation on walking maps of safe courses around the office,
· Onsite group exercise classes,
· Bike storage options to encourage bicycle commutes
Not only do these programs encourage physical activity, they also help in developing an environment that supports fitness and making healthier choices. Healthentic also offers their clients assistance with developing custom wellness strategies with their on-staff wellness manager, Shelly Henderson.
Healthentic offers the Wellness Decision Engine, which tracks an organization’s health over the years, which paints an accurate picture of their current and potential medical issues based on a culmination of insurance claims data, self-reported information, and more. This software works hand-in-hand with their initiatives to ensure that employers are best utilizing their health and wellness budgets.
It is also important to recognize that May is National Skin Cancer Month. Spending just 30-minutes outside is long enough to cause skin damage, and with Melanoma being the most common form of Cancer in the United States, it is important to be diligent about wearing sunscreen. For more information about Melanoma, please visit http://www.skincancer.org, and contact Healthentic - who also offers a Skin Cancer Prevention initiative!
