What is Global Employee Health & Fitness Month and How Does it Work?
Global Employee Health & Fitness Month (GEHFM) is an international and national observance of health and fitness in the workplace, created by two non-profit organizations, the National Association for Health & Fitness and ACTIVE Life. The goal of GEHFM is to promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle to employers and their employees through worksite health promotion activities and environments. Formerly National Employee Health & Fitness Day, Global Employee Health & Fitness Month has been extended to a month-long initiative in an effort to generate sustainability for a healthy lifestyle and initiate healthy activities on an ongoing basis.
Employers everywhere are invited to participate in GEHFM. Throughout GEHFM employers will challenge their employees to create Healthy Moments, form Healthy Groups, and develop a Culminating Project. Participants will be able to log these activities on the GEHFM website throughout the month, allowing employers and employees to track, share, and promote their individual and group activities.
*** By logging activities on the Global Employee Health & Fitness Month website, you understand that you are participating at your own risk. Therefore, ACTIVE Life and the National Association for Healthy & Fitness are not responsible for any injury that you might incur.
History of Global Employee Health and Fitness Month
From 1989-2010, tens of thousands of employees engaged in National Employee Health & Fitness Day. However, it is clear that healthy behavior changes take time to develop into lifestyle habits. Recognizing the potential for making healthy habits, NAHF and ACTIVE Life decided that in 2011 a full month - and an international focus - would lead to healthier lifestyles and sustainable behavior change worldwide.
