Wellness program offers a variety of resources to employees and familiesCambridge, Ohio – July 28, 2010 – Edgetech’s ‘ProActive’ wellness program is celebrating seven years of success, promoting healthier lifestyles for employees and their families.

Initiated by its parent company, Lauren International, ProActive focuses on providing easy access to preventative screening, exercise facilities and assistance with life challenges from financial counseling to smoking cessation.

“Through ProActive, we strive to remove barriers so people have access to healthy alternatives and by offering programs that can be tailored for employees’ individual goals,” said Maurya Shaw, health and wellness advocate, Lauren International.  “This concept has been embraced by Edgetech employees at all levels, helping us reduce healthcare costs and create a healthier organization overall.”

Lauren International offers onsite fitness rooms at both its New Philadelphia and Cambridge locations, providing employees access to a fitness coach, physical therapist and nutritionist. Employees also have the opportunity to meet with a chiropractor and massage therapist at a reduced rate. Free health risk assessments are also available through Edgetech’s in-house clinic, including cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, A1C, blood pressure and weight analysis. Additional programs, such as Weight Watchers meetings and physical therapy, are available through Lauren International. But, beyond traditional wellness programs, Edgetech takes a ‘whole person’ approach by offering counseling and other programs designed to help employees reduce the stresses of everyday life.

“Wellness is more than just eating healthy, it’s about improving lives and reducing stress on employees and families whenever possible,” Shaw said. “With ProActive, Edgetech employees are more empowered to make better choices about the way they live their lives, which translates to better morale and a better overall work environment.”

Shaw looks to expand ProActive in the near future to emphasize regular screenings and personalized goal setting.
