In recent years, Xerium initiated its corporate-wide wellness programs which offers incentives on medical plan premiums aligned with employee participation in biometric screenings, weight loss and fitness programs along with gym membership reimbursements. In addition, the state-of-the-art gym at the Youngsville headquarters gives employees on-site access to quality fitness equipment and activities.

"We value each of our employees and believe that their health and that of their family is one of our top priorities. We also recognize that our employees' health and well-being is important to the health of our business. I have always been a strong advocate of wellness programs within the businesses I have been fortunate to lead. At Xerium, we wanted to build on this commitment and implement our wellness programs to also help offset rising medical claims expenses, especially when coupled with the changes in U.S. health care reform," said Mr. Harold Bevis, President and CEO of Xerium.
