This morning I participated in the Mayor’s Walk through downtown Concord, New Hampshire, alongside Mayor Bouley and nearly 100 community members. The event was in support of the Capital Area Wellness Coalition’s I Prefer to Walk campaign to promote wellness, community, walkability, and highlight Concord’s downtown community.
As a member of the Capital Area Wellness Coalition and a company that encourages employee wellness, Northeast Delta Dental was proud to sponsor the Mayor’s Walk. As I describe in chapter three of my book, There Are No Do-Overs: The Big Red Factors for Sustaining a Business Long Term, in business, the importance of physical and mental health fitness cannot be over-emphasized. To run a successful business, you need to keep the players on your team healthy.
To keep our team healthy, we have two on-site fitness centers and offer yoga and aerobics classes to employees. We also have a running and walking team (The Toothaches) that meets weekly. We encourage employees to remain fit while doing the exercise of their choice.
