If you’re starting to think ahead about health and fitness goals for 2013, you’re not alone. Nearly one in five Americans make a New Year’s Resolution that focuses on improving their wellness, usually in the form of becoming more active or taking off extra pounds. Whatever your personal goals may be, just know that Abbadabba’s is here to help you walk the walk now more than ever before by helping our employees go the distance with healthier habits.
At a time when other companies are cutting back on expenses, we are now offering team members unique wellness benefits like reimbursing the cost of monthly gym memberships and race-day fees. Customers have told us that one of the reasons they keep coming back to Abbadabba’s is our knowledgeable employees. So we want to ensure they have every opportunity to support your healthy living journey through their personal experiences as well.
Like Christine Porter, our Director of Store Operations. Since the beginning of 2012, she has lost a considerable amount of weight and now works out five to six times a week. Christine is now using the wellness benefits to fund her gym membership and pay for the fees associated with races such as the Atlanta Thanksgiving Day Half Marathon and the Chicago Half Marathon. “It’s great that Abbadabba’s is helping support my personal fitness goals,” she notes. “Since I am the athletic shoe buyer, this experience has helped me understand what our customers need in most exercise environments.”
Kristen Smith, Chief Financial Officer of Abbadabba’s, sums up the company’s unique philosophy. “While Abbadabba’s mission is to be Atlanta's Premier Source for Innovative Comfort Footwear, our purpose is to promote better health by helping you find shoes that support your feet, maximize performance and prevent injuries. In selling products that enable people to live a more active life, we wanted to provide wellness benefits to our employees that back up this passion.”
Abbadabba’s wellness benefits include:
Complementing the generous health insurance packages already offered, the company’s wellness benefits help make Abbadabba’s one of the best places to work in Atlanta. Unlike most retailers, we have low turnover and a high percentage of full-time workers – allowing us to continually invest in the in-depth training of sales staff about products. Which means you can always count on our team to be able to answer questions, help fit the best footwear for your needs and support your healthy living goals.
