Healthy workforce initiatives
Alcoa’s healthy workforce initiatives focus on risk awareness, both on and off the job, to help ensure the health and wellbeing of its employees. Every facility develops its own activities to promote healthy living, such as smoking cessation, weight loss, diabetes prevention or fitness programs. In addition, each plant offers an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), which provides services including advice on personal finances, and family and psychological counseling for employees and their families.
In 2012, several of these initiatives – and some new ones – were brought together under the Alcoa Wellness program in order to offer a more integrated approach and to encourage more physical activity and awareness of employee wellness, both at work and at home with family.
