The American Heart Association’s Start! Fit-Friendly Companies Recognition program awarded Westfield Insurance gold-level status for its investment in encouraging employees to live healthy, active lifestyles. The Start! Fit-Friendly Program supports the fight against heart disease, the number one killer in the United States, by promoting walking programs and other healthy choices at the workplace.
Start! Fit-Friendly companies reach gold-level status by implementing various activities and programs to encourage physical activity, nutrition and culture enhancements. To earn this honor, Westfield has invested in a variety of initiatives to support employee health and wellness.
At corporate headquarters in Westfield Center, Ohio, Westfield offers employees access to an on-site fitness center, provides regular communications about health tips and active lifestyles, and operates an employee dining hall that features freshly prepared meals and sells local produce.
Westfield employees outside of the corporate headquarters can enroll in the GET FIT reimbursement plan, which compensates fees for enrollment in local fitness facilities. All employees can join the Westfield Health and Fitness Facebook page that shares news, tips and recipes for healthy living.
