SPRINGDALE, ARK. – As part of its new health-and-wellness campaign, Tyson announced a new digital tool designed to improve the health of its 120,000 US workers. Tyson is utilizing a technology platform provided by Bellevue, Wash.-based Limeade, which is accessible to employees as part of the meat and poultry company’s new “Living Well at Tyson Foods” health and well-being program. Using the Limeade app, employees can access resources such as health-focused educational material, information about preventative health activities to take full advantage of Tyson’s health and well-being benefit programs.   

“We started the ‘Living Well at Tyson Foods’ initiative because we care about our team members and believe the Limeade platform will enhance our efforts to promote a culture of well-being,” said Claudia Coplein, Tyson’s chief medical officer. “Our company’s success depends on our people and this initiative will place well-being at the heart of the team member experience, infusing health and wellness into the workplace.”

The new multilingual platform is designed to not only inform and educate employees about their well-being, but also offers monitoring and tracking of individuals’ activities and achievements for workers who opt to sync their personal fitness tracking devices to the Limeade software.

Earlier this year, Tyson announced its investment of more than $20 million to supplement workers’ benefits, including extending parental leave, additional mental health support and other health-and- wellness-focused benefits.
