Lenexa, KS, October 09, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Aptora launched a brand new product that enhances employees’ mental well-being; it is called the Corporate Wellness Program. This easy to use system covers all components of traditional wellness programs including conception, implementation, documentation and additional tips for companies to start and maintain their own wellness program.
“The program includes templates that are very easy to customize in (Microsoft) Word,” said Susan Leichter, VP of Business Operations at Aptora and author of the program. “I researched and studied multiple wellness plans and decided to create my own system that doesn’t involve complicated software or ongoing fees.”
Susan Leichter has previously taught physical education for over 8 years, is a Registered Nurse in the state of Kansas, and has been a volunteer for the American Red Cross since 1996. With this extensive background and her passion for health and wellness, it was only natural that she develop a corporate wellness program. Her initial program was introduced to the employees at Aptora as a Beta program in early 2004. The program quickly began to reduce sick time, increase productivity and improve company morale. When this occurred, Leichter decided to turn it into a low cost, do-it-yourself system that any company can use.
“When you choose to implement Aptora’s Corporate Wellness Program, you are making the conscious decision to positively impact your company’s future by investing in the health and wellness of your employees., Leichter explained, “The best part is, that it works for anyone. Whether they are fit and trim, or carrying extra weight they all can participate and get motivated.”
In addition to the company benefits there are numerous employee benefits in the Corporate Wellness Program, the most important benefit being increased individual wellness. The system encourages participants to increase their fitness level by taking part in physical activity such as walking which according to the American Heart Association: can help decrease heart rate, improve blood sugar (for non-insulin diabetics), improve blood pressure, lower the risk of obesity, enhance mental well-being, and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
“I’ve never moved so much in my life,” Melanie Shoemaker, Aptora employee, stated, “Being a wellness program member at Aptora has held me accountable to be more active. The friendly competition with co-workers keeps me motivated and makes it fun.”
The do-it-yourself Corporate Wellness Program includes; setup and implementation manual, employee handouts, fully editable Microsoft Word forms, wellness program binder, 16 binder dividers, pack of 20 employee wellness tracking sheets, pre-printed sample forms (filled out), and 2 hours of live online consultation and basic set up of program handouts with wellness expert Susan Leichter.
While there are plenty of wellness plans on the market, Aptora’s Corporate Wellness Program the only fully customizable system that is ready to use, right out of the box. The program is now available to purchase by phone or on Aptora’s Website.
