P&G unveils part of new plan to keep employees fit

June 4, 2008

Albany-  Procter and Gamble employees can shape up at work with the opening of a new fitness center.

Wednesday afternoon, employees got their first look at the new center complete with treadmills, elliptical machines, and weight training equipment. Employees must complete a training course, but can then use the center, before or after work or during a break. It's part of a new initiative at P & G called a blueprint for healthy living.

"It's all about how do we make healthier choices and do the things that we need to do to stay healthy and active, and so the fitness center is just a piece of that," said Nakeia Grimes, P&G Human Resource Manager.

The fitness center will be available for P&G employees starting next week.
