ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany CEO's learned the benefits of encouraging their employees to walk.
The business leaders met at Phoebe Northwest this morning to get a lesson from the American Heart Association on promoting a healthy workplace and community. They say it starts with walking just 30 minutes a day and holding one another accountable.
They're asking CEO's to invest in the Start! program and get employees out and about.
"When their employees are healthy and fit, their premiums for their insurance is going to be less, the cost for their healthcare is going to be less, but their employees are going to be better too. They're going to be happier at work, have better attitudes and less sick days at work," said Cynthia George, Phoebe Putney VP of Governmental Affairs.
Many Phoebe employees tested out their walking shoes this morning on the indoor track at Phoebe Northwest.
There are many other public walking and running areas in Albany like Darton College, the Meredyth track, and downtown by the Flint river.
