Only about 14 out of 100* American companies have a worksite wellness strategy.
But that's not how it is at Schupan. Since 1998, Schupan & Sons has been actively engaged in encouraging and developing employee health through our company wellness program, called SHAPE.
We're all seeing the benefits. Lower health care costs. Less absenteeism. More employee satisfaction. Not to mention smaller waistlines.
From running, walking and bowling to golfing and dancing, Schupan people are choosing to be more active and leading healthier lives.
And the program doesn't stop at the end of the Schupan parking lot either. About 7 out of 10 Schupan employees are engaged in off-premise, structured exercise and recreation activities, many paid for in full or in part by the company.
Grasp your desk firmly with both hands, push back, stand up and go outside. As the saying goes "Life is not merely to be alive, but to be well."
