Lippert said it is launching a new health and wellness program geared toward its employees called “Take the Step.” The company said the program was implemented to provide resources for team members to take steps toward improving or maintaining a healthy lifestyle by encouraging them to become more aware, knowledgeable, and proactive concerning their health and wellbeing.
“The overarching message behind Take the Step is that everyone matters, and their health and wellness matter equally as much,” Lippert said. “The program is comprised of a three-fold structure to Educate, Engage, and Empower team members with a goal of motivating them to take baby steps toward better health.”
The program consists of several factors and resources, including nutrition and movement programs, team challenges, preventative screenings, and an increased focus on mental health. With this new project in place, Lippert leaders said they hope to get everyone started on a new, unified journey toward optimum health and wellness from which all team members can benefit.
“I’m confident that this will really make a profound impact on so many of our team members in the coming years,” said Jason Lippert, president and CEO of Lippert. “The health and wellbeing of our team is not only critical to our success as a company, but most importantly, it is implanted in the culture we have created. If we can educate and get our team members (all of us) healthier, healthcare costs can go down for everyone. Not to mention, it will promote healthier habits and lifestyles for us all – helping make us mentally sharper, feel better, and become the best versions of ourselves for our teams, family, and friends.”
Jaime Murphy, director of health and wellbeing, will spearhead the program. “I am so incredibly excited to be a part of this initiative,” she stated. “Lippert has provided the foundation for this program to be a success by developing a culture dedicated to caring for all team members. Accessibility in the workplace, prevention, and intervention with education will collectively allow us to support each other as we all take action steps to better health. We can’t wait to get started!”
