Holiday Wellness: Ponce City Market Tenants Building a Wellness Wonderland


The holidays are upon us … when exercise often takes its own vacation until January. But working and working out can go together. Companies have learned how important employee wellness is to the bottom line, so they’re creating great ways for employees to stay healthy.

The recently opened Ponce City Market is home to a number of innovative businesses with workforces skewing towards the “millennial.” It’s also a place where companies are building great wellness programs that serve to attract, retain and motivate employees.

Corporate Wellness and the Bottom Line - Workplace wellness makes business sense. Companies with a corporate wellness program on their premises have a higher employee retention rate, higher profitability and sales, higher productivity, and happier employees.

Providing discounts to a local gym isn’t enough anymore. Innovative companies are now offering their employees a range of in-house options.


Your Example: With more than 300 employees in their new Ponce City Market office, tech company Cardlytics is using its creative office space and location on the Beltline to build a wide-ranging wellness program, including:

  • Fitness offerings at all levels, from bootcamp and yoga to a running and walking club

  • Daily fitness classes taught by a professional instructor, offered before work or at lunch.

  • Maternity and postnatal exercise classes for the employees of Ponce City Market AND their spouses/partners, working with Oh Baby Fitness.

  • A food co-op that delivers fresh fruits and vegetables once a week

  • A monthly lunch and learn focused on healthy eating

  • Wellness counselors and creative incentives to keep employees exercising

  • Onsite health and community fairs to provide information on healthy lifestyles
