The Harris Products Group’s Gainesville facility was recently named the “2011 Most Fit Company” among medium-sized businesses by the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce.

The manufacturer of brazing, soldering, welding and cutting equipment and alloys was recognized during the chamber’s VISION 2030 HealthSmart Community Challenge at a HealthSmart Breakfast event. Local companies were evaluated based on the number and types of wellness, nutrition and fitness opportunities available to their employees.

“We are especially proud of this award as our wellness programs have had such a positive impact on our company culture,” said Ira Bennett, director of marketing for the Harris Products Group. “Implementing our wellness program has been an extensive process, but the end results have been outstanding.”

The Harris Products Group, formerly known as Harris Calorific, has been operating in the city of Gainesville for more than 30 years. In recent years, the facility started several wellness initiatives, including reimbursement for fitness center membership, biometric screening, health assessments and follow-up health coaching. The organization also hosts a Weight Loss Challenge and a Walk for Wellness program with the motto,“Motivation, Perspiration, Celebration!”

The emphasis on better health has received significant attention from the top leadership of the organization. In 2008, smoking and tobacco use was prohibited on the property. The company also established safety programs, including creating a team of first-aid certified employees in each department, regular CPR training and an emphasis on safety and ergonomic practices to create operational improvements that prevent workplace injuries.

“This is an ongoing effort that required adoption on the team’s part, and they have really stepped up to the plate,” said Cathey Sexton, human resources manager for the Gainesville facility. “We are looking forward to seeing this program grow and seeing how our employees are happier and healthier because of these programs.”
