Sea Gull Lighting Gets Head Start in Making 2011 a Healthy and Happy New Year for Employees

Company Forms Dedicated Employee Wellness Committee; Provides Personal Coaching, Incentives and Online Resources to Help Employees and Spouses Achieve Prevention, Wellness and Health Objectives

RIVERSIDE, NJ--(Marketwire - November 30, 2010) - Local business Sea Gull Lighting Products LLC, a leading manufacturer of decorative and functional lighting products, has announced it has formed a voluntary and dedicated Wellness Committee chartered to improving the health and well being of its employees. This comes after Sea Gull Lighting selected Longitude Health Inc. to provide its employees with a full suite of guided health and wellness solutions.

Kicking off the company's health and wellness initiative, Sea Gull Lighting sponsored an employee health fair in September where local businesses, healthcare providers and services, local fitness and weight loss groups as well as some local restaurants and caterers provided employees with tips to get active, healthy eating options and suggestions on how to incorporate long-term activity into everyday life. Local businesses that participated in the health fair included: Amerikick Karate, Cathy's Catering, Giant Fitness, ProAdjuster Chiropractic, Il Baccio, Atrium Dance, Jenny Craig, Health Haven, Diet to Go, Blue Cross/Shield, YMCA, American Heart Association, American Cancer Association and American Diabetes Association.

In conjunction with the health fair, the company also hosted a day of health screenings for employees and their spouses -- in an effort to encourage employees to "know their numbers" and start taking control of their health.

"Sea Gull Lighting relies upon the knowledge, productivity and vitality of its employees to win in an extremely competitive lighting marketplace," says Michael Vostenak, Director of Human Resources at Sea Gull Lighting. "Investing in patents, fulfillment systems, processes and intellectual property are critical but secondary to Sea Gull Lighting's greatest source of competitive advantage -- its people." 

To continue the momentum of health and wellness into 2011, the Wellness Committee will work with the company to develop and implement health improvement campaigns that will include exercise challenges, diet/nutrition tips, stress management training and 1-on-1 professional health coaching.
