In a recent survey of our associates, over 35 percent requested that we start a physical fitness program. Other companies in our area have already begun similar programs and have seen a decline in absenteeism rates.
After reviewing the services of all local gyms, I have recommended
that we initiate a contract with Jack and Jill’s gym that is conveniently located within two blocks of our building. This gym provides individual fitness evaluations and plans to help each person move toward specific improvement goals. The owners boast of having the latest best-maintained equipment in the area, and they limit their membership, preventing, as much as possible, long waiting lines for equipment use.
Enclosed are several brochures that list services and prices for individual gym memberships. Obviously, we would have to negotiate a group rate. I will call you later this week to arrange a time when we can talk about providing a physical fitness program for our associates. Such a program, in my opinion, would have many benefits for the associates and the company.
