Blog : 6th Annual Employee Wellness Fair at Redhook Brewery

By Madalyn | Oct 14, 2014 | in

Redhook Brewery is an innovative company that values environmental stewardship and social responsibility. One way in particular that Redhook expresses these values is by advocating for and supporting the health of their community, starting with their employees. On October 22 Redhook will host their 6th annual Employee Wellness Fair from 11 a.m – 3 p.m. at 1 Redhook Way in Portsmouth.

The Wellness Fair has become a prominent feature in Redhook's implementation of socially responsible business practices. The event highlights the significant role Redhook's sustainable values also play in the lives of each and every employee. The relationship between company values and overall employee happiness is symbiotic as both continue to improve, a result of the high-level of employee participation at company events and within the workplace.

The event offers amazing benefits for those Redhook employees who decide to attend, including significant discounts on health-care packages as well as free Biometric screenings. Employees who receive a full-body check-up, provide information on weight, cholesterol, and other required information, will receive a discount on the health-care package offered through Redhook.

But the event is ultimately about educating people on healthy living. This year, Redhook encourages the inclusion of spouse participation at the fair to help spread that awareness within the families of employees.

“Our fair vendors are just a small window onto the myriad of wellness possibilities offered; from public transport, to alternative health practitioners, including acupuncture and hypnosis. We want to be sure our employees can chose from what works best for them,” said Linda Currier, Director of Human Resources. This level of care between company and employee is especially important at a time when health care options are a topic of debate. Redhook is a model for other local businesses looking to implement socially conscious and environmentally friendly business practices in the workplace.

The event features a number of different Green Alliance Business Partners including, but not limited to, Gateway Taiji, Qigong & Yoga, Great Works Chiropractic, and EZ Bikes & Scooters.

At Redhook, employees dedicate themselves to making the best product possible with the lowest impact on the environment. Each and every member of the Redhook team is dedicate to a healthy future for themselves and their product.
