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.

May 2022 – Mental Health Month

We all have mental health, just like we all have physical health. Yet, mental health is somewhat of a “taboo topic”. Mental health is just as important as our physical health. Our physical and mental health are connected to each other.

Mental health includes the thoughts we tell ourselves, the feelings we experience, and how we cope with struggles in life. When we feel super stressed, worries, restless, or unable to focus, mental health is a factor.

Anxiety and depression are the most common mental illness. About 26% of Americans have a diagnosable mental health illness with anxiety and depression as the most common mental illnesses. Anxiety is the most common mental health disorder in the US and it’s also on the most treatable disorders. Yet half of employees never seek help.   

Sustainability - Eat Right

Eat Right – Eating with Mental Health in Mind

You’ve probably heard the expression, “you are what you eat,” but what exactly does that mean? Put simply, food is fuel, and the kinds of foods and drinks you consume determine the types of nutrients in your system and impact how well your mind and body are able to function. Eating a healthy diet is part of taking excellent care of your mind and body. A healthy diet can benefit your physical, mental and social well-being in powerful ways

 Sustainability - Be Fit

Be Fit – Nurture Physical Health

Eat healthy and get some exercise no matter what – even during vacations, holiday seasons and stressful times. Eating poorly, drinking alcohol and slacking on exercise can exacerbate stress and depression. A simple exercise like walking, even just 30 minutes a day, helps reduce stress. Move gently, take up a mood-boosting yoga or tai chi. These practices incorporate moves that help you to relax and stretch; you’ll improve your balance and coordination while also lowering stress levels. Also spend time in nature, a short hike in the woods or an hour of gardening can be a powerful mood lifter.

 Sustainability - Live Well

Live Well – Check-In with Yourself

Poor mental health significantly decreases our quality of life. It makes it more challenging to work, enjoy time with loved ones, and maintain healthy habits. Mental health left unchecked can rule our lives. Struggling and not sure where to begin? PITT OHIO has tools in place to help you get your mental health in check with the new and updated employee assistance program. One of the quickest and easiest ways to determine whether you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition is to take an online screening mental health test.
