VT Industries Helps Employees “Start on the Path to Wellness”
HOLSTEIN, IA (June 20, 2016) — VT Industries, Inc. is proud to announce the completion of a new walking path at their Holstein, Iowa corporate headquarters. The new walking path provides a convenient and safe place for employees to walk during their lunch and break times, and is part of the company’s wellness program that encourages employees to focus on their individual wellness and health.
The new walking path connects the south parking lot to the adjacent North Luebeck Street and is approximately one quarter mile long. “We know that health and wellness are contributing factors of happy, productive, and well-rounded employees,” explains Trisha Schmitt, VP of Corporate Marketing. “We’re thrilled with the new walking path and hope it inspires more employees to start on their path to better health and wellness.”
“The walking path was originally suggested by our employees,” explains Araceli Johnson, HR/ Wellness Coordinator, when it was presented to the executive team, they immediately saw the value of the walking path, and the rest is history.”
Studies have shown that just 30 minutes of any form of physical activity per day is beneficial for both physical and emotional well-being. “At VT, employee health, safety, and wellness are important areas of focus. We want our employees to be their best both at work, and outside of work. We’re dedicated in our efforts to support our employees and will continue to help cultivate their success,” explains Schmitt.
