Discovering Wellness at Work

As a family-owned and operated company, we feel a special obligation to our employees.  We are in a dynamic partnership with them, informed by shared values that have stood us well over years of growth and development.  This includes a commitment to partner with employees and family members to help each of us live a longer, more healthful productive life.  We endeavor to instill in all of our employees:

  • A positive mental-attitude;
  • A passion for healthy eating habits and regular exercise; and,
  • A desire to learn and practice preventive medicine.

Taco’s obligation to their employees and family members is to provide a safe and healthy work environment that supports good health practices, increases the awareness of health risks, and helps people change problem behaviors.  We will continue to do this by supporting healthy work-site programs, educational programs and health conscious work environments, and encouraging employees to practice preventive medicine and get recommended clinical preventive services.  It’s the right thing to do!

Taco’s HR team and Working Well-thy Committee, in partnership with our healthcare and wellness suppliers, work together to provide a comprehensive menu of wellness programs and initiatives which are supported by senior management and designed to engage all employees as well as target the at-risk population.  The wellness program is generously funded by Taco and provides clear incentives for making healthy lifestyle changes.

We have built our business on the kind of values that maintain and strengthen a family.  Our dedicated employees are integral members of that family and our company culture is a personal one.  This means we support each other in attaining business and individual goals and objectives.  The health and success of our business is based on the quality, commitment and good health of our workforce. Investing time in our employees’ health results in decreased absenteeism, reduced health care costs, and improved productivity.  And, most importantly it results in the ability to increase the life expectancy and quality of life for employees of all ages.
