Fidelity Investments wants its clients to be financially fit. It wants its 37,000 employees to be physically and mentally healthy for life.

The financial-services firm’s “Well for Life” program goes beyond traditional benefits of health care, dental and vision to create healthier employees and families. The company provides healthy dining options, on-site fitness centers and wellness clinics, meditation programs and free health screenings.

Some of its more-innovative tactics for improving physical and mental well-being include on-site ping-pong tables and bean-bag toss boards, which help foster socialization and provide mental breaks. Employees can also reserve 30-60-minute sessions at the company’s 28 walking work stations – standing desks equipped with treadmills.

Fidelity also invests $16 million annually in its nutrition program. Employees purchasing FIT meals – those deemed to be healthy based on calories, fat and sodium content – receive free fruit and earn credits toward future meals.

A healthy thought:
‘Fidelity supports and sponsors broad well-being tenets … through the provision of healthy dining, on-site fitness centers [and other benefits].’
