From the start, Dave Baum was a believer. If a corporate wellness program at Hastings Fiberglass could increase productivity, he was on board.

What the man sitting in the president's chair didn't anticipate was how much better he himself would feel when the company took on an ambitious agenda to alter personal lifestyles and improve overall health.

"I believe you've got to show leadership from the top," says Baum, of taking on a commitment to personal health goals, "but, when I became more physically active, I felt less stressed."

The results have been similarly dramatic for the company's 75-employee workforce.

"Look at these numbers," Baum says with amazement of the latest report from Holtyn Associates, a Kalamazoo worksite wellness consultant guiding the Hastings Fiberglass program. "Of our 75 employees, 81 percent have increased their physical activity, 59 percent have lost weight, 36 percent have lowered their blood pressure, and 31 percent have reduced their fat intake."
