Laitram Honored with Healthy Business Award
Jefferson Chamber has named Laitram, L.L.C. the recipient of the inaugural 2017 Healthy Business Award. The award focuses on highlighting and celebrating Jefferson Chamber members who are actively engaged in healthy initiatives in the workplace and provide ideas for healthy changes that employees can make.
Laitram opened a health and wellness center on its campus in 2012 for employees, and later family members. The health center, staffed by two nurse practitioners and a medical assistant, averages 250-300 visits per month. A few years later, a fitness center was added to Laitram’s health offering for employees.
Employees are also urged to participate in yearly biometric screenings. Other health benefits for employees include healthy cooking classes, group exercise classes, and a registered dietician on staff.
