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.


December 2022 – Strengthen Connections

How we live our lives has changed in many ways these past two years, including a sweet one: We’re more inclined to make time to sit down to eat – often with family and friends – than before the pandemic, surveys have shown.

Our connections to others are vital to our health. Relationships make people happier. Relationships also lower anxiety and depression.

Sustainability - Eat Right

Eat Right – Share Your Meals

According to a recent study, sharing regular meals with family and friends can significantly impact mental health and well-being. Sharing meals with others could be one way to manage stress and improve mental health. It has been demonstrated that sharing meals with family, friends, or neighbors can boost self-esteem and improve social connections. As we share meals with our loved ones, we can reconnect again. It helps us take a step back and slow down. Doing this regularly can keep chronic stress at bay in the long term.  

 Sustainability - Be Fit

Be Fit – Mental Fitness

Building social connections is vital for you and your health. Social connectedness can reduce the risk of cognitive decline, including Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Studies have shown enhancing social connectedness can significantly improve quality of life, boost health and well-being, elevate mood and happiness, increase longevity, and even enhance cognitive and physical performance. Our brains love socializing, and as human beings we benefit both cognitively and physically from exercising with others.

 Sustainability - Live Well

Live Well – Social and Emotional Health

Emotional, mental, and social health often cannot be separated. They each contribute greatly to our overall well-being. Emotional wellness is the ability to successfully handle life’s stresses and adapt to change and difficult times. Emotional health emphasizes an awareness and acceptance of one’s thoughts and feelings. Social health encompasses connecting with community, family, friends, and co-workers in ways that enrich your life and the lives of those around you. Taking care of your social and emotional health is as important as taking care of your physical body.
