Every year, the week before Father’s Day means last minute shopping for ties and golf items, a trip to the store to find the perfect card, and the occurrence of Men’s Health Week. Since 1994, when Men’s Health Week originated, the movement has grown significantly. Many organizations plan a day for employees to wear blue in order to increase awareness or hold car washes to raise money for the healthcare industry.
To ensure that your employees stay informed and healthy throughout the year, you can provide nutritious options when you cater events, organize activities during lunch breaks or after work to get people moving, and distribute promotional fitness accessories to help employees stay in shape on their own time. Enacting these small practices can make a large difference because, as Congressman Bill Richardson said, “Recognizing and preventing men’s health problems is not just a man’s issue. Because of its impact on wives, mothers, daughters, and sisters, men’s health is truly a family issue.”
