Contests make fitness fun at Elite

Healthiest Employers of Rhode Island 2019
2-149 EMPLOYEES #5: Elite Physical Therapy Inc.

CEO (or equivalent): Dr. Michael Nula
Number of employees: 114

The company’s 114 employees spread across 10 locations in Rhode Island and Massachusetts engage in team-based wellness challenges. Competitions involve challenges for the number of steps taken and distances walked, as well as a plant-growing contest. On Earth Day, each department received a flowering plant from Elite’s wellness team. Departments competed to see who could grow the healthiest, biggest plant.

Elite has focused on improving and expanding its wellness program over the past year. The company moved away from webinar-based wellness programs to interactive sessions. It’s going beyond initiatives focused on physical health to include financial well-being and stress management. Most recently, Elite launched an on-site yoga program for employees in its Warwick location. The company will soon expand the monthly staff yoga class to its other locations.
