Giant Food Incentivizes Employees to Stay Healthy with #HealthyAtWork Program
Giant Food is working to ensure the wellness of its employees through its #HealthyAtWork associate challenge. Initially launched in October 2020, the regional grocer incentivizes store and warehouse associates to participate in healthy behaviors and learn more about the programs and services available to support their wellness goals.
The #HealthyAtWork activities prompted associates with simple weekly goals, tied to Giant’s key healthy living pillars, that built on each other to create habits designed to support a healthier overall lifestyle:
- Movement: Try a new exercise
- Emotional Health: Reconnect with a friend
- Physical Health: Check your blood pressure at the pharmacy
- Nutrition: Swap a sugary beverage for water
Activities also directed associates to Giant’s healthy-living programs, including the Healthy Living By Giant podcast, blogs, and classes, as well as in-store shopping tools like Guiding Stars, the nutrition rating system that identifies better-for-you options on the shelves. Associates enrolled in Giant’s Flexible Rewards program also earned 5x Flex points on healthy food purchases throughout the program, which were identified by the Guiding Stars designation
