As a “Family of Steel”, we want to make sure our family stays healthy and happy, which is why our company has started a new wellness program this year. The basis of our program started with Humana’s Vitality program. Macuch Steel contributes to the HSA based on employee’s involvement with the program. Everyone can earn different status levels: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. Those levels determine how much the company contributes.
In addition to motivating employees through HSA contributions, Macuch Steel has also been planning events throughout the year to encourage more healthy habits. Our company participated in the American Heart Association Fit Walk as well as the Champ Camp in Atlanta. We have also installed a walking track at work so employees can easily get in more steps to meet their goals. The New York Times released an article that says “a new study finds that even gentle lunchtime strolls can perceptibly — and immediately — buoy people’s moods and ability to handle stress at work.” We have more and more employees who are tracking their miles and working more on preventative care.
