Commercial IT Solutions, Inc., a leading provider in managed cloud solutions for small to medium sized businesses, recently received the Mayor’s Fitness Council’s Healthy Workplace Award. Four award levels include bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. Commercial IT Solutions, Inc. received silver-level recognition. This is the second year in a row that CITS has been recognized for implementing an employee wellness program.

Encouraging Employees to be Their Healthiest
Being that CIT is in the technology field and a majority of technicians provide support from a help desk environment, sitting at their desk for 8+ hours isn’t unheard of. Commercial IT Solutions has created ways to get technicians out of their seat and challenges to keep them motivated. This is the second year CIT has received the Healthy Workplace recognition and they plan on having even better results for 2016.

Commercial IT Solutions offers a program that helps employees understand the importance of healthy living and activities, according to Christabel Cook, Brand and Communications Manager of Commercial IT Solutions. “We felt it was important to educate employees in a healthier lifestyle and give them access to information that will help get them out of their seats during work hours” Christabel said.
“We are honored to be recognized by Mayor Ivy Taylor and by Fit City SA as a healthy workplace in San Antonio” said Niklas Rosen, President and CEO of Commercial IT Solutions. “I wanted to provide a fun and rewarding way to help employee’s live healthier lifestyles, so I implemented programs that didn’t focus specifically on weight loss, but overall results.” Approximately 75% of CIT employees currently participate in these challenges, noted Niklas.

CIT hopes to add more activities and options for employees in the upcoming year. “From managing stress to offering a work-life balance – there is more to a healthy workplace than just weight loss and we want our employees to have access to all of those resources” Niklas also added.
