Celadon Group Named Inaugural Winner Of Healthy Trucking Fleet Of The Year

Stocks in this article: CGI

Celadon Group, Inc. (NYSE: CGI) today announced that it has been awarded the 2012 Healthy Trucking Fleet of the Year award, presented by FusionHealth and Navistar. This is the inaugural year for the award, which honors trucking companies that excel in integrating health and wellness programs and practices into their operations for improving the health and well-being of its driver workforce.

The Healthy Trucking Fleet of the Year award is scored on a set of criteria focusing on how the company’s program integrates into its operations, how it targets the continuum of health care issues, tailors to population needs, includes high participation of employees and evaluates the results on clear definitions of success. Celadon was specifically recognized for its on-site, full service health clinic that offers primary physician care, prescription services, workers compensation rehabilitation, and physical therapy. Celadon was further recognized for its comprehensive Wellness Program, which consists of health screenings, health seminars, diet and weight loss programs, nutritional and exercise programs, and incentives for healthy habits. Finally, the company was recognized for its below industry average driver turnover rate, attributed in part to its health and wellness programs.

A team of Celadon executives accepted the award at Celadon corporate headquarters in Indianapolis. “We are extremely proud of our strategic, progressive approach to long term health and wellness initiatives,” said Paul Will, Vice Chairman, President and COO. “We have worked diligently to initiate innovative, truly life changing practices for our drivers and all Celadon employees. We are excited to be awarded the Healthy Trucking Fleet Award and help elevate industry adoption of pro-active healthcare and healthy lifestyle choices.”

Chelle Pfiffner, Vice President of Strategic Employer Solutions at Fusion Health, elaborated on the significance of the Healthy Trucking Fleet of the Year Award. “Drivers power the industry, and it can be difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle during long stints on the road,” said Pfiffner. “The program is meant to raise awareness of employer initiatives to support health among drivers and to recognize outstanding fleets leading those efforts. FusionHealth and Navistar believe the trucking industry can set the example for moving America forward to better health.”
