Gardiner Roberts LLP Chooses MYTRAK to Keep Their Employees Healthy

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) - It's no wonder Gardiner Roberts LLP was listed as one of the top 75 Best Work Places in Canada by the 'Great Place to Work Institute' in 2009, as they truly believe their employees to be their most valuable assets. Having a healthy corporate culture is something worth striving for and according to Chairman Paul Stoyan at Gardiner Roberts, it's something he believes the law firm has, "Our employees are very aware and conscious of making healthy choices, many attend gyms at lunch and eat healthy foods from what I can see".

And to further their belief, last year Gardiner Roberts introduced Mytrak Health Systems Inc. to their employees as another way to ensure their employees get and stay healthy. Before Mytrak was introduced, Stoyan described the employees as active, but with Mytrak and their M2 Personal Smart Coach, "employees are paying attention and are more aware of their activity level throughout the day". M2 is a personal feedback computer you wear on your belt each day. It lets you know at the touch of a button, through a series of coloured lights, whether or not you are on track with your own personal health goals. Green is the colour to aim for and the "go for green" mantra is an easy message to adopt and follow.

According to both Chairman Paul Stoyan and Mirella Canavan - Administration Co-Coordinator, when Mytrak was introduced to Gardiner Roberts, "the employees were very keen, they loved it". Stoyan stated, "It was seamless to integrate into our company and the adoption rate was good". People are using it daily and Canavan says, "They love going for green".

Not only does the Mytrak M2 add to the health and wellness of our employees, "it's a great perk for the firm to provide" says Canavan.

With obesity and inactivity as the cause of many heart diseases, creating a healthy work environment is at the top of the agenda for the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation and their plan for creating a Heart Healthy Canada. With Canadians spending a large part of their day at work, the environment has to be conducive to fostering healthy habits. With the help of Mytrak, Gardiner Roberts is certainly a workplace fostering heart healthy habits, a model company with the best practices!
