Susan Tufts has managed the Wellness Program at L.L.Bean for over 25 years. L.L.Bean’s Wellness program has been successful because it reflects the values of our company. Health and Safety are an integral part of how we work and who we are.
Significant accomplishments include a reduction in employee smoking rates from 24% in 1985 to less than 7% today; tobacco-free grounds, subsidized healthy offerings in our cafeterias and vending machines and a comprehensive health risk assessment program that is integrated with our Benefits plan. We have experienced a significant reduction in health risk factors, and impressive cost savings including a 5.3:1 ROI from our Healthy Lifestyles program – evaluated through multiple claims analyses.
Susan has degrees in Nursing, Athletic Training and Exercise Physiology/Cardiac Rehabilitation.
