Interesting Wellness Initiatives

HR Strategies’ internal staff is currently participating in Humana’s Vitality program. However, according to SHRM, other countries have taken their wellness initiatives in a bit of a different direction.

The following is an excerpt from this SHRM article.


Workers in Stockholm are sweating to a disco beat during their lunch hours in a trend that started several years ago and has since spread elsewhere to cities around Europe, according to an April 2012 USA Today article. Lunch Beat, an hour-long dance party, starts at noon and is held off the worksite typically. In Stockholm, the parties have been held at an underground parking lot and a cultural center. No alcohol is involved. Portugal was to start its first Lunch Beat in May 2012.
