Fortna® Celebrates the 10th Anniversary of its Award-Winning Overall Well-Being Programme

Achieves 80% associate participation rate.

READING, PA (5 February 2020) – This year, Fortna®, The Distribution Experts®, celebrates the 10th anniversary of its Overall Well-Being Programme that encourages and supports all dimensions of total wellness.  It offers a variety of healthy lifestyle enhancing opportunities, benefits, initiatives, and educational experiences designed to meet the diverse needs of our global family of associates. Twice named a Capital BlueCross Worksite Wellness Award Winner, the programme’s success is demonstrated by recently achieving an extraordinary 80% participation rate, well over the average for corporate wellness programmes.

“The overall well-being of each associate globally, and of their family members, is a top priority at Fortna,” said Carol Nielsen, Fortna’s Wellness Coordinator.  “The company has consistently stayed ahead of emerging trends in corporate wellness, employing a holistic approach to wellness long before it became popular to do so.”

Fortna’s Overall Well-Being Program allows associates the flexibility to customize their own paths to healthy lifestyles in ways that are meaningful to them such as:

  • Reimbursement for fitness and wellness classes, equipment, gym memberships, flu shots, etc.
  • Paid time off for associates to volunteer in their communities.
  • Multiple well-being initiatives and fitness campaigns during the year.
  • Additional paid time off to qualifying “Road Warrior” business travellers to support work-life balance.
  • Education and communication programmes for associate safety and emergency preparedness both at home and when travelling for business.
