Keller Williams Dedicates Day to Health and Wellness Awareness

Austin, TX | April 17, 2015

Employees organized a field day to support KW Wellness initiative in community

AUSTIN, TEXAS (April 17, 2015) — Recently named as one of the healthiest workplaces in Austin by the Austin Business Journal, Keller Williams Realty International employees ran, stretched, and planked their way to better health during the 2nd Annual KW Wellness field day in Zilker Park. The field day offered employees the opportunity to show off their athletic prowess in strength and agility contests.

“The mission of Keller Williams is to build careers worth having, businesses worth owning and lives worth living,” Keller Williams CEO Chris Heller said. “In order to have a ‘life worth living’ you must also have health and wellness. We’re dedicated to the emotional and physical well-being of all employees.”

In early 2015, KW launched a company-wide 66-Day Step Challenge to bring awareness to the significant health benefits of taking walks and exercising throughout the day.

“We had nearly 100 people participate in the Challenge,? said Director of Human Resources and Recruiting Leslie Vander Gheynst. “The competition turned into a team-building experience and everyone was extremely supportive of one another. The entire Challenge fostered camaraderie and strengthened interdepartmental relationships.”

Keller Williams places a strong emphasis on Health and Wellness in the workplace by offering comprehensive health insurance packages, in-office chiropractic care, acupuncture treatment, massage therapy, a Farm to Work program and an exercise facility complete with a dedicated Wellness Coordinator.

The company devotes time throughout the year to helping team members establish wellness as a habit and hosts an annual KW Wellness Fair where local vendors spend the day sharing their services and knowledge with the office.
