Solstice Named AHA Fit-Friendly Company for Third Year in a Row
February 04, 2014
Solstice has been recognized as a Fit-Friendly Company by the American Heart Association’s (AHA’s) Start! initiative for the third year in a row—the second as a Platinum Level company. Fit-Friendly companies earn this distinction for helping employees eat better and move more.
“As a health care company, our employees’ overall health is a top priority at Solstice. We are honored to be recognized once again by the American Heart Association’s Start! program as a Platinum-Level Start! Fit-Friendly Company,” said Solstice COO Carlos Ferrera. “We’re committed to providing a workplace environment that’s supportive of employees’ physical and mental health goals. We embrace the AHA’s mission and reflect them in the values of our company.”
This year, Solstice encouraged wellness and activity by launching Solstice Synergy, an innovative online platform that increases employee engagement and participation in wellness programs. It allows participants to earn points for making healthy choices in the areas of diet, exercise and overall wellness. These points can be redeemed for rewards. The company also hosted various programs such as nutritional counseling, smoking cessation, weight loss, and lunch and learns to educate and support employees.
