Interstate Batteries Named a 2012 Dallas Fit-Friendly Company
Interstate Batteries® recently received Gold Level recognition as a fit-friendly company in Dallas by the American Heart Association. Fit-friendly companies are organizations that are going above and beyond when it comes to their employees’ health.
The fit-friendly worksite recognition program was designed by the AHA to be a catalyst for positive change in American business. It recognizes employers who champion the health of their employees by creating physical activity programs within the workplace. It is also meant to encourage other worksites to participate and demonstrate similar physical activity practices for their employees.
Studies suggest that implementing a worksite physical activity program and promoting a culture of activity will help worksites:
- Increase productivity
- Reduce absenteeism
- Lower turnover
- Reduce healthcare costs
See other Dallas companies who have been recognized as a fit-friendly worksite in the May 17-23 issue of the Dallas Business Journal.
