Beginners Running Program

Hit The Road's Corporate Beginners Running Program is an excellent way for your organization to realize the benefits of initiating a corporate run team.

There are benefits for the employees and the employer. Employees will benefit from participating in regular activity and all the health benefits associated with doing so while the employer benefits include lower absentee rates, higher employee retention rates, more productive workforce, improved corporate image and improved communication and teamwork.

All of Hit The Road's running programs are instructed by insured and certified trainers who focus on improving the fitness of your employees while limiting risks to participants.

Our beginners programs can get your workforce up and moving and culminates in a goal run where you can increase your companies profile in the community.

Employers have the option of fully subsidizing the cost of the training for employees or to endorse the program to their employees at the their own expense. Both options have high participation rates with a drop out rate of less than 18% over the course of the program.

Hit The Road can also measure the effectiveness of their programs and supply that data to the employers for wellness program planning.

Workplace Wellness Saves

Here's a report from Ohio.com about the benefits of workplace wellness initiatives.

There's also a growing trend for companies that have wellness initiatives in place to actually pay employees or give other incentives to take part in the programs offered which indicates that these companies are realizing the benefits from their programs.

Companies do not have to invest millions to reap the rewards. Even small initiatives can offer benefits. Not only the bottom line is affected either. Other less tangible benefits are also proving true like a more productive workforce, better customer service, reduced absenteeism and improved company image.
