Marking 2 years in a row, New Horizons Learning Group has been named a finalist for the 2016 Healthiest Companies Awards, presented by the San Diego Business Journal. Health and fitness have always been an important part of work life at NHLG, however, the wellness program as it stands today started by accident and competition. CEO and Owner, Kevin Landry is competitive by nature as he was in college and encourages a healthy lifestyle whenever physically possible. Laura, VP and Employee Experience, and him began a friendly competition on their new FitBits. This led to competing with anyone else who had one. Owning a Fitbit to track ones “steps” turned into a company-wide competition, and eventually into the start of our program. Now, daily walks around our office building for a break, brainstorming session and even some calls are taken while walking, or competing.
