Corporate Membership

The Y is in your community to give everyone an opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. As the nation’s leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, we are reaching out to you with an opportunity for your most valuable asset—your employees.

Organizations that value and promote a healthy lifestyle have an edge when it comes to attracting and retaining key people. Plus, companies enjoy a variety of additional benefits of healthy employees, including:

Increased Morale, Productivity & Retention

Physical activity improves moods and energy and decreases stress and anxiety. Active employees feel good about themselves and their work.

Decreased  Health Care Costs

According to the American Heart Association: “Poor diet, lack of exercise and other major risk factors for heart disease and stroke are responsible for at least 25 percent of companies’ healthcare costs. Is it any wonder, then, that investing in the health of employees is one of the best decisions a company can make?  By creating a wellness environment, your company can help lower healthcare costs and protect your most important resource — your employees. In fact, research shows that for every $1 invested in worksite wellness, companies can receive up to $3 in return.”
