SOUTHFIELD, Mich., September 19, 2013—Southfield-based Farbman Group, a leading full-service real estate company, announced today that it has been selected as one of Michigan’s 2013 Best and Brightest in Wellness, which honors the company’s dedication to providing its employees and tenants with a healthier work environment. Andrew V. Farbman, CEO of Farbman Group, made the announcement.
An advocate of employee wellness and healthy living, Farbman Group has initiated several exercise programs, as well as made nutritional snacks easily available for its team members and tenants. The company kicked off 2013 by partnering with Detroit-based Healthy 4 Life to offer complimentary lunchtime weight loss and fitness programs, and recently hosted a summer fitness challenge between its employees and its Bingham Farms Office Center tenant, United Physicians. Additionally, Farbman Group partnered with New Center One tenant, Savorfull, to install vending machines in its buildings with all-natural snacks, including Kind Bars, Home Free Treats, Dr. Lucy’s Cookies and Twisted Water.
“We are extremely honored to be selected as one of the Best and Brightest in Michigan for offering a healthy lifestyle to both our employees and our tenant partners,” Farbman said. “Farbman Group takes great pride in promoting wellness in our community, and we look forward to continually partnering with innovative local companies who are advocates of establishing a healthy living and work life balance for our employees and tenants alike.”
The Best and Brightest in Wellness is a premier program that honors companies and organizations that recognize and celebrate quality and excellence in workplace health.
