Overall, the community benefits from having people that are invested in helping themselves and others live the best life they can. They act as our wellness champions in our communities to help change the culture into one that is healthier and happier.”
- Katie Mills, Wellness Specialist – Health and Wellness, Geisinger Health Plan
Through their Metro Total Wellness Program and committee, InterMetro Industries offers a variety of company wellness programs throughout the year to employees, including free screenings, blood drives, free popcorn, fruit days, and lunch and learns. Employees are also encouraged to complete a Health Risk Assessment, for which they can receive reimbursement for healthy activities. InterMetro’s team believes that anytime an employee’s life can be improved, it is a positive outcome. Over the years, several employees have been helped to make positive life changes, like quitting smoking or making overall healthier choices. Going forward, InterMetro will continue to use the wellness committee to shape and promote the program, developing to include more population health management initiatives.
“Our healthy workplace initiative is not a top down, management driven initiative but rather a total team effort in that all associates are engaged in driving the ideas, programs and ultimately the great results.”
John Nackley, President/CEO, InterMetro Industries
