“Our wellness program is designed to point our employees in the right direction.”


Wellness Program Highlights

We have a great blood pressure campaign that works. Through the American Heart Association's platform and our raffle campaign, we are able to monitor and consistently check an employee’s blood pressure, while remaining HIPAA compliant. This year-long campaign has produced a significant reduction in both systolic and diastolic pressure. Over 90% of our dealership employees participate. Over 80% know their blood pressure on the spot, and over 55% have had a reduction in overall blood pressure.

Most Proud of ...

Palmetto57 has received three awards in 2018. We were one of only three companies in Miami-Dade to achieve the American Heart Association Workplace Health Achievement Index Award. We were also the first and only company to receive the Gold and Platinum Lung Association Award in consecutive years. No company has ever won Gold and then Platinum in back-to-back years in Florida. As a result, we were then used as an example by the State of Florida's Tobacco Cessation Program in a recent consortium seminar. Our tobacco program has received wide praise here in Broward and Dade Counties. This is something to be proud of!
