HUDSON, Ohio—Employees at Alttran Inc. ate healthy this summer.
The specialty rubber compounder, located in Hudson, said it initiated some traditional methods to focus on healthy eating and exercise for its employees.
The company posted monthly tips on diet, safety and exercise on a bulletin board, but the most popular and effective tool for promoting a better diet, according to the firm, was to start a company garden.
The company cleared an area next to the employee parking lot and planted a variety of vegetables. Employees volunteered to build a storage shed and a brick patio, so lunch tables could be set up beside the garden.
