Sensible Nutrition Wellness Program Challenges

LAWRENCE, MA (July 31, 2008) – Sensible Nutrition announced their new client, Sekisui Voltek, will be launching a 12 week Worksite Wellness program for their employees starting in July. Sensible Nutrition, a Hingham MA based corporate wellness provider, has created a custom 12 week program tailored to meet the needs of the Sekisui Voltek employees. Sensible Nutrition’s award winning wellness programs have helped over three thousand employees at over 100 companies for over 10 years.

“We are excited to bring this important wellness program to our employees. We hope that by embracing this new 12 week program our employees and their family’s quality of life improves, both at work and at home,” explained Laurel Burrill, Director of Human Resources Planning at Sekisui Voltek. She continued, “With the rising cost of healthcare affecting everyone, we wanted to be aggressive and find ways to help our employees live healthier lives, while also trying to combat the rising healthcare costs we are facing today. We value our employees and this program is a welcomed addition to our already employee focused benefit platform”

As a long term employer for the Merrimack Valley area, Sekisui Voltek continues to focus on both their employees and the surrounding communities. Located in Lawrence’s Industrial Park for over 35 years, this manufacturer of polyolefin foams, will be focusing over the 12 week period on physical activity, weight management and cancer prevention. These three health issues stood out as important areas of concern from a recent employee health risk assessment.

“I am thrilled to be working with Sekisui Voltek to help promote wellness to all their employees. Recent statistics report that 15% of the population incurs 85% of our healthcare costs. However, we believe it is extremely important to remember to keep the healthy people healthy and help those high risk employees change their behaviors. That is why our program is different from many others; we focus on all employees, not just high risk employees.”
