In addition to providing services for those needing immediate care, Troy businesses are committed to preventive measures. Local gyms now offer more than basic aerobics and weight training. Childcare facilities are often found on the premises to allow parents to have a “no excuses” workout. Some gym memberships even promote gender-specific exercise programs. Yoga and karate classes, coupled with healthy eating programs, are also popular in Troy.
Typically, businesses rank employee health costs as their number one concern. Yet, the most effective resources and best practices are buried in an enormous pile of health information. With this in mind, the Troy Chamber is dedicated to wellness initiatives. The Chamber offers a Health, Wellness and Insurance Guide to its members, including local doctors, chiropractors, dentists and medical specialists as well as companies carrying insurance products for individuals and businesses.
In 2005, various chambers of commerce partnered to form the Oakland County Wellness Coalition. Its vision is taking the lead and pioneering wellness in the workplace. You will definitely be hearing more about this group in the coming years.
