Promoting Healthy Living
Glatfelter wellness programs are specifically designed for
our PEOPLE and their families. Health and wellness is encouraged and
promoted through various programs that help our employees and their
families learn about and improve their personal health, which can
elevate their quality of life.
United States-Based Wellness Programs
Glatfelter’s Wellness Programs are intended to help employees and
their families become healthier, better utilize their health care
resources and, ultimately, spend less on complicated and expensive
medical procedures. Our goal is to motivate all Glatfelter PEOPLE
and their families to improve their health and quality of life — mind,
body and spirit.
Glatfelter’s Wellness Programs promote healthier, active lifestyles among
all active Glatfelter employees and their families, with the secondary
advantage of lowering total benefit costs. Through programs geared toward
walking, weight management, tobacco cessation and other specific
health-related areas, employees and their families are encouraged to
address their medical and health challenges.
When employees and their family members are in better health, less health
care is required, benefitting both the employee and our Company. We continue
to monitor our health benefit costs and sponsor wellness initiatives such
as walking/running events, Weight Watchers programs, gym membership
reimbursements and health fairs – all intended to promote a healthier
European-Based Wellness Programs
While health and wellness benefit programs are provided through the
government and are constructed differently for our European-based employees,
we continue to promote healthy lifestyles at Glatfelter by encouraging
active participation in Company-sponsored recreation, such as curling,
hockey, golf, running, volleyball, bowling and cycling as well as smoking

lifestyle, please review our Glatfelter PEOPLE in Motion document.
