Health, Safety, & Wellness

Health, Safety, & Wellness

Our mission to bring a healthier lifestyle to individuals extends not only to our customers but to our employees. A healthy lifestyle not only brings the benefits of health and wellness but the resulting improvement in quality of life and individual productivity. We believe that the health, safety and wellness of our employees is paramount given their relationship with our members and subscribers has a tremendous impact on our members’ and subscribers’ weight loss success.

We are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for our employees. We aspire to be an incident-free environment and believe that occupational illness and injury are preventable and unacceptable. We recognize that a safe and healthy work environment is both an individual and company responsibility. We believe that each employee must prioritize health and safety and constantly demonstrate careful workplace behavior. As a company, we understand the importance of developing a “safety first” culture and foster this at the local level through guidelines, programs and policies relating to, among other things, risk avoidance, workplace violence and stress.

Our efforts to support the health and wellness of our employees go beyond just managing the safety of their workplace. Subject to local law, customs and practices, employees may be eligible for certain medical benefits, disability coverage and life insurance. We also provide access to health-awareness activities with a particular focus on preventative care and other programs that promote healthy lifestyles. For example, in certain locations, we provide seasonal flu on-site vaccinations and awareness programs, as well as first aid training. In many locations, we also reimburse or provide discounts to our eligible employees for expenses related to certain health and fitness services and/or equipment. In addition, we provide employees access to Weight Watchers meetings or certain Weight Watchers products at a reduced or no cost.

The health, safety and wellness of our employees is an extension of our corporate mission and a responsibility we take seriously.
