CONCORD, NH–The Scott Lawson Companies (SLC), a leading worker health and safety; workers’ compensation third party administrator; and employee wellness firm in New England, is pleased to announce their participation in the Commute Green New Hampshire promotion. Commute Green New Hampshire’s primary goal is to help people carpool, bicycle, walk, and/or use public transportation to work, school, shopping and similar trips from May 16-20, which coincides with National Bike/Walk to Work Day on May 20. The Scott Lawson Companies hopes that their involvement will help make significant impact on their employees as well as their community.
SLC is celebrating Commute Green NH by launching their own challenge to their employees. Themes for each day of the week have been created to encourage employee participation. “Our office is very team oriented,” said Stephanie Ceccherini, Wellness Coordinator, Workforce Wellness, a Scott Lawson Company. “Our wellness team was excited to come up with creative ideas for Commute Green NH. We felt the themes would allow for our employees to be on the same track and work together towards a common goal.”
The schedule is as follows:
Monday, May 16th: Stay Put Day; Tuesday, May 17th: Telecommute Day; Wednesday, May 18th: Carpool Day; Thursday, May 19th: Be Green Your Own Way Day; Friday, May 20: Bike To Work Day
“I’m really excited to be participating in Commute Green NH this year. Aside from the environmental message and benefits, it’s an excellent employee wellness exercise, promoting physically and socially healthy alternatives for commuting to work,” said Zach Lawson, Vice President, The Scott Lawson Companies. “We have several team members that are already signed up for group bike rides to work, and many others that are coordinating carpooling. I am anxious to see the miles that our team saves, but even more so to experience the relationships that it bolsters.”
With all the opportunities for the employees to become involved, the wellness team anticipates a 100% employee participation rate. “This is a hefty goal, but our employees value teamwork and service, and truly understand the positive effect their participation will have in the community,” said Ceccherini. “As a company, we believe that providing workforces around the world with creative ways to improve the environment, boost team morale, and get people overall healthier is beneficial for everyone.”
