National Employee Health and Fitness Month

It’s National Employee Health and Fitness Month!

Now is the month for companies to invest in the health of their employees. This awareness month began as National Employee Health and Fitness Day in 1989. This one day was founded by two organizations, the National Association of Health & Fitness and ACTIVE Life, as a way to encourage healthy living in and out of the office. But in 2011, they decided to expand this special day into a month.

Does your workplace have a wellness program that motivates you to get healthy? If not, get them to create one. It is always about the bottom line, so begin by getting information on the economic benefits of companies with wellness programs. You can begin today by organizing a few employees to walk in the morning before work or at lunch.
