Healthy at work

April 8, 2014

The Elyria headquarters of Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC has garnered a “Healthy Worksite Gold Level” award from the Ohio Dept. of Health for the company’s ongoing commitment to improving employee health and wellness.

Bendix noted that it began “strengthening wellness efforts” in Elyria in the late ’90s with the rollout of an on-site fitness center, annual corporate-wide health fair, and incentives for employees to be more active.

The Elyria facility was declared a tobacco-free property in 2012 and also offers tobacco-cessation programs free of charge as well as discounts on insurance for tobacco-free employees and dependents.  Health offerings include personal health coaching for all employees, annual blood screenings, physicals, and mammograms and prostate exams for employees and spouses free of charge.

The manufacturer pointed out as well that, for the second year in a row, it has not passed along any health-insurance cost increases to its employees—all because of its healthier workforce.
