The mission of our Wealth of Health wellness program is to create a culture and environment that fosters healthier lifestyle choices to reduce health risks, improve well-being, and maintain a productive, active workforce. There are a variety of activities throughout the year reinforcing the wellness mission. Some recent examples include our Company Olympics with 10 events over 10 days, our Time of Your Life fitness event, consisting of before and after fitness assessments with a chance to win the grand prize all-expense paid vacation for two, annual biometric screenings and numerous educational sessions. We have our own company community garden, a fully equipped fitness center, and host onsite circuit training and various exercise classes. Currently, all new hires are provided with a Fitbit to enable them to participate in various activity challenges.
Each year since 2009, our wellness program has won numerous awards, including Gold, Silver, and Bronze Healthy Ohio Healthy Worksite Awards from the State of Ohio, as well as being named one of the Healthiest Employers of Central Ohio.
Lake Shore is a silver sponsor of the Westerville Parks Foundation Bike and Walk trails, and we partner with Westerville Parks & Recreation for some of our programs. We sponsor co-ed and men’s softball teams, and participate in various community activities.
