Grand Rapids, Mich., Nov. 4, 2014 – Lambert, one of Michigan’s top-ranked public relations agencies and the state’s largest investor relations firm, announced today that it was named one of Michigan’s Best and Brightest in Wellness™. The Best and Brightest in Wellness™ awards symposium is the premier program that honors companies and organizations that recognize and celebrate quality and excellence in worksite health promotion.
Lambert’s wellness program is used as a culture builder, recruiting and retention tool, and even a business development tool. The firm offers Zumba and Yoga classes on its rooftop deck, which are open to clients, vendors, partners and the general public. Through the program, Lambert has seen a net decline in body mass index, including two employees who lost more than 40 pounds each.
“It’s an honor to be placed in this group with other firms who value wellness. We’ve found that healthy employees are more productive, have fewer sick days and they’re more engaged in their health and well-being,” said Jeff Lambert, president and managing partner of Lambert “We work with a number of clients who promote healthy living, ranging from health care facilities and providers to supporting Michigan’s Smoke-Free air law, so it’s been a logical step for us to foster a sense of wellness with not only the firm, but the community as well.”
Lambert has a corporate membership to the YMCA where they offer education programs, biometric testing and tips on nutrition as well as classes. In addition, Lambert awards cash reimbursement for wellness activities.
“Having a healthy and happy workforce leads to a healthy company bottom line. This year’s winning companies represent high standards and an exceptional commitment to healthy employees, healthy families and a healthy community,” said Jennifer Kluge, Michigan Business and Professional Association/Michigan Food and Beverage Association President and CEO. The MBPA and MFBA are the presenting organizations for the Best and Brightest in Wellness™ program.
