In honor of National Walking Day, EFH, Luminant and TXU Energy employees laced up their athletic shoes and set out to take laps around their respective work sites — and even walked to a lunch spot to celebrate.
In a busy world where work can keep people at their desks for long hours, ensuring employees get up to stretch or walk throughout the day is important for mental and physical health.
The American Heart Association, a close corporate partner with our family of companies, says that walking at least 30 minutes a day can help:
- Reduce risk of coronary heart disease and stroke
- Improve blood pressure, blood sugar levels and blood lipid profile
- Maintain body weight and lower the risk of obesity
One of the many reasons our companies have been recognized as a great place to work is our emphasis on wellness in the workplace. From a MobileDoc traveling health clinic to on-site chiropractic and nutritionist services, a slew of wellness programs and a partnership with Compass Professional Health Service Pros to give employees what they need to achieve their health goals, the company believes that a healthy workforce is a happy workforce, and makes for a happy customer base.
