Covington, LA (PRWEB) November 6, 2009 -- Gilsbar, a national leader in health benefit administration services, has established an award winning approach to health and lifestyle management and was recently honored with Platinum-Level recognition for the American Heart Association Start! Fit-Friendly Companies Award for the second time.

The American Heart Association recognizes over 1,200 companies across the nation each year that demonstrate their commitment to promoting exercise and good nutrition in the workplace. Start! Fit-Friendly companies implement various programs and resources as a catalyst for positive changes within their workforce populations, making their employees’ health and wellness a priority. Gilsbar was one of the 170 companies awarded the Platinum-Level for 2009.

Beyond its service to clients, Gilsbar recognizes the importance of caring for its own employees and their families and encourages physical activity and nutrition, ultimately creating a culture of health within their organization. Gilsbar’s health and lifestyle management program offers employees monthly wellness seminars, health and financial personal coaching, paid gym memberships, wellness challenges, and generous incentive programs.

Gilsbar’s Executive Vice President, Doug Layman, says, “Gilsbar is honored and excited to be recognized by the American Heart Association’s Start! Movement as a Platinum-Level Start! Fit-Friendly Company. We have worked hard to encourage and support healthy lifestyles within our organization, and as a result, we’ve seen a dramatic decrease in health care costs and an increase in employee morale and productivity.” Layman adds, “In order to be successful long term, health and lifestyle management has to develop within an environment that continually supports the philosophy.”
