Recognition: Redi-Tag Corporation Receives 2006 Fit Business Award
Oakland, California-based Redi-Tag Corporation was honored by California State Senator Tom Torlakson and Lt. Governor Cruz Bustamante for its exemplary workplace wellness program. The California Fit Business Awards annually recognize California employers providing workplace environments that support their employees in making healthy physical activity and nutrition choices.
Redi-Tag Corporation is the 2006 winner in the category of companies with less than 25 employees. Redi-Tag Corporation strives to make a healthy lifestyle fun, easy and rewarding by encouraging participation in 5K runs/walks, and hosting a health challenge every year that includes rewards for winners. To make healthy eating easy, the company offers healthy food in its lunches and vending machines, and teaches employees about good nutrition.
The Task Force created the Fit Business Award to encourage, recognize and promote leadership in new business models of a healthier workplace environment and culture. Award winners are selected based on availability of healthy food choices; employer-provided time, space and support for physical activity; management support and workplace policies.
(As BFL&S reports in it November issue, many businesses are realizing that offering wellness programs has healthy side effects on their employee benefits’ costs.)
