Senomyx Hosts Health & Lifestyle Expo for Employees
According to the Centers for Disease Control, an unhealthy lifestyle is the primary factor for the six leading causes of death in the United States – heart disease, cancer, stroke, respiratory diseases, accidents, and diabetes – which collectively account for over 70 percent of all deaths.
To draw awareness to these serious risks, Senomyx recently hosted our first Health & Lifestyle Expo. The Expo included many experts who can facilitate in maintaining our employees’ mental, physical and emotional health. At the Expo, employees were given spinal exams; healthy cooking lessons; “chi readings”, which are said to evaluate the energy flowing through your body that will predominantly carry your thoughts, feelings and emotions; and much more.
According to CNN Money, 25% of people check into work hourly while on vacation, via email and phone, while 59% said they check work during traditional holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving.
At Senomyx, we hope to ensure that our employees are happy and healthy while in the workplace and on their own time. We feel that by developing a culture of wellness we can support the needs of our employees and create opportunities for them to meet recommended levels of physical activity and maintain their overall health. We believe that a full wellness program can have financial and additional benefits that might extend to their children and other family members.
