Companies urged to apply for Fit-Friendly program

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana companies are being encouraged to apply for the American Heart Association’s free Fit-Friendly Company program.

Companies are recognized for implementing various activities and programs to encourage physical activity, nutrition and culture enhancements such as on-site walking routes, healthy food choices in cafeterias and vending machines, annual employee health risk assessments and online tracking tools.

Companies can complete the free enrollment process by July 31 at ffc.heart.org.

With American companies staring at $225.8 billion a year in healthcare expenses and health-related productivity losses, corporate wellness programs are a must.

Recognition is a critical component of the Fit-Friendly Companies 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 local CEO breakfasts. Qualifying companies also have the right to use the program’s annual recognition seal for internal communications and with external, recruitment-related communications.

Participating companies also get free access to program resources such as walking program materials to help promote company wellness programs to employees, internal newsletter templates and consultation on CPR/AED programs.
