San Antonio – Recently earning the Recognition in the 2015 Healthy Workplace Recognition Program, (HWRP) esd & associates continues to expand it’s health and wellness program.
“Through our continuous workplace initiatives, employees are encouraged and motivated to live a healthy lifestyle, in and out of the workplace,” said Erik Simpson, chief creative officer of esd. “ This honor validates all of the hard work of our employees who make this possible.”
The San Antonio Business Group on Health (SABGH) created the Healthy Workplace Recognition Program (HWRP) in collaboration with the Mayor’s Fitness Council to promote local employers’ efforts toward a healthy workforce. The HWRP assesses employee wellness programs in the areas of organizational culture, health promotion and education, physical activity, nutrition, smoking and tobacco use, and health benefits design. This marks the fourth consecutive year that esd has earned the Healthy Workplace honor.
esd was also recently named to the San Antonio Business Journal’s list of Healthiest Employers for the third consecutive year.
Among other healthy activities, esd’s company wellness initiative, or esdFit, organizes weekly Friday workouts, company bike rides and a walking club. The company also reimburses employees for entry fees to official 5K runs, triathlons, and cycling races, prompting many to develop and advance their own personal fitness goals. In addition, esdFit has an incentive program built into the initiative, further motivating employees to participate in making changes towards a healthier lifestyle.
