Gunster’s wellness program has a slogan that best represents its efforts over the years: Helping you get well, be well and stay well.
As wellness committee chair Dorothy O’Guin told the Business Journal, Gunster has several health initiatives popular with its employees, including:
- Approximately 75 percent of Gunster employees attended the firm’s popular health fairs in 2013 (held once a year at most of its 11 offices throughout the state). The fairs are free to employees and offer screenings for blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol, as well as an opportunity to speak to a health coach.
- The firm’s “Destination: You” walking program is another winner with employees. Approximately half of all Gunster employees participate in the progam, which is designed to get people moving; accumulating 1 million steps in a year can result in paid time off or a discount off the following year’s health insurance premium. Cash and other prizes are also awarded throughout the year for group challenges.
