Gilsbar Recognized as an American Heart Association Fit-Friendly Company
Date:5/3/2013

Covington, LA (PRWEB) May 03, 2013

Gilsbar has been recognized as a Platinum-Level Fit-Friendly Company by the American Heart Association for helping employees eat better and move more.

“Physical activity and employee wellness are important priorities at Gilsbar. We are honored and excited to be recognized by the American Heart Association as a Platinum-Level Fit-Friendly Company,” said Hank Miltenberger, president. “We’re committed to providing the best workplace environment possible. This will benefit our employees’ health and produce even more positive results for our company overall.”

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.

The Fit-Friendly Companies program is a catalyst for positive change in the American workforce by helping companies make their employees’ health and wellness a priority.

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.
