NARRAGANSETT BAY INSURANCE CO. is dedicated to bringing healthy habits into the workplace through a variety of wellness initiatives. A recent survey showed 76% of the employees feel the company cares about their health.
For example, there’s Fruit Monday, when employees are encouraged to take in healthy nutrition thanks to a free snack of seasonal fruit offered at the cafeteria on the first Monday of each month. And on the third Thursday of every month, Narragansett offers free, 15-minute chair massages.
The Commit to Be Fit program includes sit/stand desks that allow for movement throughout the day. There’s also an on-site fitness facility, and the company recently created a lunchtime walking club.
Narragansett also has a designated “wellness room” where employees can go for some quiet downtime during the day. One employee found that using the wellness room one or two times a day helped alleviate the migraines he used to get at the end of the day.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story gave an erroneous name for the company’s chief executive. Timothy Moura is the president of Narragansett Bay Insurance Co.
