Because Tallahassee has such a high government employment rate, The Working Well Tallahassee Coalition thought what better way to get people motivated and moving toward the "Well City" designation than through their employers.
The coalition hosted a CEO kickoff breakfast this morning in Tallahassee. About 90 CEOs attended, aiming to make their businesses and communities healthier.
The speaker for this morning's breakfast was the CEO of the largest and oldest law firm in West Virginia.
Steve Lacagnin says health care premiums went down after his company adopted wellness activities like health screening and other employee wellness initiatives.
According to the coalition, research shows overall active employees cost companies about $391 less a year than inactive employees.
