Lincoln Industries Wellness encompasses the body, mind and spirit. We support our people in making smarter, healthier lifestyle choices. We encourage balance between work, home and personal goals. We believe that supporting our people’s health and wellness interests is a sound investment in our company, as the most important asset of the company is the people.
As an organization, we have set ourselves apart from other manufacturing companies in a number of ways. Perhaps most important are our commitment to the wellness of Lincoln Industries people and our efforts to create a strong culture of caring. We firmly believe that a happy, healthier workforce creates a better end product.
Others have recognized our efforts as well. We’ve been named one of the 25 Best Medium Companies to Work for in America by the Great Place to Work® Institute, making the list multiple years running. In November 2007, Lincoln Industries was chosen as a national Innovation in Prevention Award winner by the Department of Health and Human Services for its efforts in promoting healthy lifestyles in its community. Other national recognitions include:
- C. Everett Koop National Health Award – 2008

The Lincoln Industries wellness program is called go! Platinum. Every Lincoln Industries person may participate on one of four levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Each level is based on metabolic screen results and participation in wellness events. Those who reach platinum status are eligible for a company-paid trip to Colorado to climb a 14,000-foot mountain.
Overall, the program has paid big dividends for Lincoln Industries. Beyond the obvious health benefits for our people, the Lincoln Industries investment in wellness has resulted in lower turnover, lower absenteeism, higher quality and lower healthcare costs. Our people have also reported that they are better able to care for themselves and their families.
