The Road to Wellness
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be a challenge, especially when you work on the road. To help address those challenges, DBi Services initiated a wellness program in 2012: “The Road to Wellness”. The program kicked off with an employee survey to help structure the program around the needs of its employees. The program is now referred to: “Take the Road That Leads to Health and Wellness,” has included several elements over the past three years, including training sessions on fitness and healthy eating on the road, health fairs, health screenings, massage therapy, and most recently, a healthy happy hour.
The response at DBi Services has been overwhelmingly positive. The company as a whole recognize the importance and benefits of living a healthier life: greater workplace productivity, less absenteeism, lower health care costs – and most importantly, quality of life and happiness.
Continuing on the Wellness Road
“Taking the Road That Leads to Health and Wellness” isn’t always a straight path. Not only do employees have different needs, but overall health needs change over time.
