In 2010, we launched BWELL, a global program designed to improve the health and well-being of our employees and their families by promoting healthy living, preventive care and positive mental health, all with the aim of nurturing body and mind.

Highlights of the program include:

-Drop-in clinics and workshops that inform employees about general health topics, ways to stay fit and manage stress, including on-site yoga and meditation sessions, and clinics for runners and walkers
-Wellness incentive programs covering smoking cessation, fitness and exercise, and participation in the Health Track program
-CPR, first aid and AED training
-Ergonomics program
-Bike-to-work programs
-Onsite Health and Wellness Center with a pharmacy concierge program

Bloomberg also began providing a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program to its New York employees in 2011 through a Wellness and Sustainability collaboration. Our 2012 CSA consisted of 188 purchased shares and 230 employee participants. Feedback has been positive with 100% of participants rating the program as successful or very successful.  Since then, CSAs have been initiated at the Princeton, NJ and Washington DC office.
