Promoting Wellness Transforming Health, Step by Step
Promote employee well being. Improve camaraderie and morale. Raise awareness about the importance of a healthy lifestyle: By participating in our pilot Walking Challenge this year, CSC employees achieved these and other critical goals while supporting the American Heart Association (AHA).
As part of this program, approximately 350 employees at 10 offices and virtual sites across five U.S. states committed to regular exercise. In the 4-month pilot program, participants lost weight and lowered blood pressure while walking an average of 156 miles per person. With their energy and dedication, our team finished in the top 15 percent of organizations joining the AHA Walking Challenge, and 9 out of 10 of us continued exercising after the program ended.
Nourishing Mind and Body
Our wellness program in the UK and Ireland focuses on encouraging employees to improve mental well being and reduce stress, become more active, avoid back and neck problems and eat healthy diets. We also seek to raise awareness about cancer prevention, and we provide convenient 10-minute checks for key health indicators, including blood pressure, glucose and total cholesterol. In a recent 2-year period, we identified 125 employees with excessively high blood pressure or cholesterol levels that required treatment. We hold events every month, and more than 7,000 employees have attended since 2008.
