West Palm Beach, FL, September 12, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The hottest new development in the world of Corporate Health & Wellness is the proliferation of at-desk exercise equipment. According to a just released White Paper by the Corporate Health & Wellness Association, Fortune 500 companies like Nike, Best Buy, Humana, Mutual of Omaha and GlaxoSmithKline are joining the growing list of health and insurance companies that are offering their employees in-office exercise equipment such as bicycle and treadmill desks.
Powered by LifeSpan, this Complementary White Paper examines trends in the workplace that include an array of new products intended to help employees stay fit while working at their desks. Active workstations, as they are called, help employees get healthier, have fun, and increase productivity in the office. The companies that are using these products are reportedly experiencing phenomenal success in reducing employee inactivity and its associated health risks.
The release of the White paper comes just days before the 6th Annual Corporate Wellness Conference, being held in Washington, D.C., September 20-24. The conference, which is part of this year’s Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress, brings together over 2000 HR managers, senior level domestic and international benefits managers, insurers, agents and brokers who are involved in implementing and maintaining corporate wellness programs. These are critical issues in corporate America today and an important component of the Affordable Care Act.
“Our mission is to provide a reliable source of information, statistics and research data on the latest trends and equipment in Health & Wellness for employers, affinity groups, insurance companies, insurance agents and consultants,” said, Sarah Hunt, spokesperson for the Coordinator of the Association. “This partnership allows us to help the Corporate Wellness industry come together to find more efficient and effective ways to implement and enroll Corporate Wellness programs, and to focus on improved methods to get employees to actively engage in Corporate Wellness programs.”
LifeSpan products will be exhibited at the conference and are already drawing a lot of attention from industry observers.
“Working together, the Corporate Health and Wellness Association and companies such as LifeSpan constitute a powerful force for the American worker and for employers large and small,” said Jonathan Edelheit, Director, Corporate Health and Wellness Association.
