FCCI Insurance Group Recognized as an American Heart Association Fit-Friendly Worksite
Date:7/23/2014

Sarasota, Fla. (PRWEB) July 23, 2014

FCCI Insurance Group has been again recognized as a Platinum-Level Fit-Friendly Worksite by the American Heart Association for helping employees eat better and move more. FCCI was also recognized as a Platinum-Level Fit-Friendly Worksite in 2013, 2011, and 2010, and as a Gold-Level Fit-Friendly Worksite in 2012.

“FCCI makes employee health and wellness an important priority. We’re committed to providing exceptional workplace environments and helping employees stay at the top of their game, and we are honored to be recognized by the American Heart Association,” said Lisa Krouse, FCCI executive vice president, Chief HR Officer.

Platinum-level employers:

  •     Offer employees physical activity options in the workplace
  •     Increase healthy eating options at the worksite
  •     Promote a wellness culture in the workplace
  •     Implement at least nine criteria outlined by the American Heart Association in the areas of physical activity, nutrition, and culture
  •     Demonstrate measurable outcomes related to workplace wellness
At FCCI’s headquarters in Sarasota, a state of the art on-site fitness center is available to all employees 24/7. Classes for different fitness levels are offered each workday, and walking paths are available. Regional and field employees are offered subsidized gym memberships and the opportunity to participate in company-wide challenges conducted several times throughout the year. Employees can earn prizes for participation and performance. FCCI also offers educational sessions on topics such as ergonomics, the importance of stretch breaks and other physical activities, tips for handling sedentary tasks, and lifestyle coaching for weight loss, smoking cessation, and stress management.

The Fit-Friendly Worksites program is a catalyst for positive change in the American workforce. American employers are losing an estimated $225.8 billion a year because of healthcare expenses and health-related losses in productivity, and those numbers are rising. Many American adults spend most of their waking hours at sedentary jobs. Their lack of regular physical activity raises their risk for a host of medical problems such as obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Employers face $12.7 billion in annual medical expenses due to obesity alone. The American Heart Association is working to change corporate cultures by motivating employees to start walking, which has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity.

Recognition is a critical component of the Fit-Friendly Worksites program. Employers that join this program qualify for official recognition by the American Heart Association. They are listed on the program’s national website, as well as at local American Heart Association events. Qualifying worksites also have the right to use the program’s annual recognition seal for internal communications and with external recruitment-related communications.
