The Work-Place - Not Only for Work

Updated: May 23, 2011

Many progressive thinking companies feel the way we do here at PGS. That is, people need to do something on their breaks other than go outside to smoke or have a high calorie cup of coffee in a dirty lunch room.

Work-place amenities give employees many options to free their minds, clear their eyes, stretch their legs, straighten their backs and most importantly, they allow the individuals to re-energize and rejuvenate. Having functional options work like a quick 30 minute nap. After your workout in the gym or after your fast game of X-Box football, you're ready to tackle the rest of your day.

We encourage all amenities at work but obviously, we are biased toward the on-site fitness center.

The aggregate benefits of work-place fitness and wellness not only lower health care costs and improve the company's balance sheet, they also advance retention and recruitment efforts. Decreased absenteeism, elevated morale, team enthusiasm and increased production all combine to achieve a fast ROI.

A well managed work-place gym along with the full array of lifestyle and preventive programs, enhances current company culture and adds incentives to the work day.
