GREENSBORO, N.C. — Volvo Trucks North America and Mack Trucks have both been recognized for taking an interest in the health and well-being of their employees.
The National Business Group on Health awarded the two companies with platinum awards, which were presented to only 17 companies across the US. A total of 63 companies were recognized by the program.
The employee wellness programs offered by the companies include: health risk assessments that analyze lifestyle habits and provide feedback; on-site health screenings with counseling based on results; targeted health and wellness campaigns with guided information and instructions on how to meet certain goals; and well-equipped fitness facilities.
“As one of 63 companies recognized this year for their employee health and wellness programs, Volvo is at the vanguard of a national movement to promote a system-wide culture of health emphasizing prevention, exercise, and eating right,” said Helen Darling, president of the National Business Group on Health. “More than ever, a healthy workforce is critical to helping America’s large employers compete in the global marketplace.”
