American Heart Association Recognizes ULT as a Fit-Friendly Worksite

Adult Americans spend most of their waking hours at work, which makes them vulnerable to health risks associated with inactive lifestyles. The American Heart Association recognizes companies that employ healthy practices and recently recognized Universal Lighting Technologies as a gold level Fit-Friendly Worksite for creating a culture of wellness in the workplace.

“We believe that a healthier workplace not only benefits a company in many ways, but also helps employees live healthier and longer lives,” said Shannon Gorbatoff, wellness and events coordinator at Universal Lighting Technologies. “In line with this belief, we encourage all Universal employees to maintain healthy lifestyles and reward them for their efforts.”

Universal Lighting Technologies offers a wide variety of wellness programs for employees to take advantage of each year, including on-site wellness coaching, a nicotine cessation program, and an annual health fair with biometric screenings. The company’s quarterly wellness challenges promote team building skills and camaraderie, and Universal also reimburses race participation. In addition to these wellness initiatives, Universal provides monthly wellness observance communications to educate employees and their families.

The American Heart Association’s Fit-Friendly Worksite Program rewards companies who champion the health of their employees and work to create a culture of physical activity and health in the workplace.
