Encouraging good health by supporting healthy habits
Customer Representative Carla Minichello was an avid dieter. It seemed like she’d tried everything, but she just wasn’t having much success. She finally visited a specialist who said that her body didn’t burn fat properly. Motivated—and now educated—she joined Progressive’s Fitness Center. Eighteen months later, she’d lost 150 pounds thanks to daily treadmill walks.
Carla’s is one of many success stories related to our health and wellness commitment. That commitment began more than 20 years ago when we pioneered on-site health clinics, fitness centers and wellness programs. In 2011 we revitalized this commitment with a program titled HealthyU.
With HealthyU, employees get encouragement—often in the form of wellness-related discounts and incentives—to improve their health. HealthyU supports employees’ efforts to make healthier choices while reducing the company’s overall health care costs.
HealthyU represents a new way of thinking about our most important asset—our people. Good health pays dividends to each employee, and to the whole company. When we’re healthy, we feel good, innovate, solve problems and take initiative.
To effectively support our customers and partners, it’s important to have everyone at their best. HealthyU helps us get there.
