As a local company that employs over 130 dedicated Vermonters, we are driven by our commitment to our customers, our culture and our climate. Recently, the Company’s wellness committee was recognized for improving our focus on employee wellness.

For the past two years, our team has worked tirelessly to increase overall health by hosting wellness events, encouraging participation in fitness activities and offering incentives to employees who are making positive changes in their overall health. Some of the events include weekly yoga classes, nutrition seminars and walk-at-work celebrations. Employees seem to be up for the challenge: three years ago, three employees participated in the Vermont State Corporate Cup Challenge. This year, we have 22 people signed up to walk and run the 5K in Montpelier in May.

Our efforts have not gone unnoticed: last week, the Vermont Department of Health and the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness awarded us an Excellence in Worksite Wellness award. We are excited to build on this exciting momentum with some new wellness classes that pertain to stress and financial wellness, in addition to fitness and nutrition. Here’s to a healthy year for everyone!
