BorgWarner Named 'Fit-Friendly' Worksite


BorgWarner’s World Headquarters and Powertrain Technical Center in Auburn Hills have been recognized as Fit-Friendly Worksites by the American Heart Association.

The association says the Fit-Friendly Worksites Program is a catalyst for positive change in the American workforce, helping companies promote the health and well-being of their employees.

“BorgWarner was one of the first large companies to understand that health and wellness has a real impact on our company, our health care costs, and the lives of our employees and their families,” says Kim Jenett, vice president of human resources at BorgWarner. “Six years ago, we established a holistic approach to health and wellness supported by health assessments, education, coaching and rewards as well as onsite clinics, cafeterias and exercise opportunities, all integrated with our benefit plans. Our healthy culture is one of the many reasons BorgWarner is a great place to work.”

In an ongoing commitment to support an active lifestyle, BorgWarner has installed a new fitness center at its expanded Powertrain Technical Center. In addition, employees and families regularly volunteer and participate in local community activities such as the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk in Detroit.

Jenett says BorgWarner plans to extend its efforts and earn the same certification for its other facilities across the United States.
