The company announced a new tobacco-free policy but the posters are still not displayed. The employees received pedometers at the beginning of the year but new hires since then have not received one. The speaker at the lunch-and-learn said things that contradicted an article in the last wellness newsletter. Plans are made but there is no follow-up, just plenty of confusion and frustration.
