Sustainability - Wellness Initiative

Wellness Logo

At PITT OHIO, our most significant resource is our people, so we've extended our mission to be People Driven beyond the workplace. In 2007, PITT OHIO initiated a company-wide wellness program in an effort to encourage our employees to Eat Right, Be Fit and Live Well.

The goal of the program is to improve our employees' health and safety. In order to allow each employee the opportunity to perform to his or her greatest potential, we take care of our people. And in turn – our employees take exceptional care of our customers.

April 2024 – Celebrate and Embrace Diversity 

During Diversity Month, this month’s theme recognizes and celebrates diversity and explores building connections and common ground with others.

Strive to have a meaningful conversation with someone who appears different from you in some way, such as their race, gender identity, or ethnic background. And strive to be respectful of differences because you value hearing about and learning from diverse perspectives. Look for ways to find common ground and share experiences, and to be open-minded and curious.

Acknowledge to them that you want to be respectful. To help build empathy and trust, listen more than talk, and use active listening skills. Also, don’t interrupt, do ask questions, be aware of body language, and nod to show you are paying attention. Be fully present in the conversation and put away your phone.

Remember, if you say or do something that they find disrespectful, apologize, and ask how you can be more respectful. 

Sustainability - Eat Right

Eat Right – Cultural Awareness    

Sharing a meal has the power to break down barriers, build lasting connections, and foster community. Food can serve as a bridge between different cultures, allowing people to learn about and appreciate other ways of life. Regardless of our backgrounds, we all have a connection to food, and it serves as a common ground where we can find shared experiences and stories. By embracing various cultural foods and practices, we can access a wider array of nutrients and flavors, promoting overall health and well-being. This cultural awareness fosters a sense of unity and understanding, contributing to a healthier society where people appreciate the benefits of a varied and balanced diet.

 Sustainability - Be Fit

Be Fit – Inclusivity in Fitness

Inclusivity in fitness not only provides for individuals of all backgrounds to engage in physical activity but also promotes mental and emotional well-being. By creating supportive and welcoming fitness environments, people feel encouraged to participate in activities that benefit their overall health. Inclusive fitness spaces encourage social connections and support networks, leading to improved motivation, self-esteem, and overall happiness, all of which contribute to good health and quality of life. 

 Sustainability - Live Well

Live Well – Empathy and Communication

Empathy and effective communication are essential for promoting good health by fostering positive relationships, reducing stress, and enhancing mental health. When practicing empathy and communicating openly, you can build strong support systems that contribute to emotional well-being and resilience. This, in turn, can lead to better health outcomes, as individuals are more likely to seek help, adhere to healthy behaviors, and cope with challenges effectively. Empathy and communication create a foundation for a healthy lifestyle by nurturing connections and understanding among individuals.
