Kicking off February 1, organizations around the country will support American Heart Month, and Yeo & Yeo is joining in by being casual for a cause. Firm employees will dress in red shirts and wear jeans on Fridays throughout February. The Michigan accounting firm is proud to support the cause by promoting and providing opportunities for firm-wide support to unite in life-saving awareness-to-action movements.
Stay tuned throughout February to hear from David Schaeffer, managing principal of the firm’s Saginaw office, survivor of a “widow maker” heart attack and a truly positive light in his community. Also shared will be the heart-healthy stories of James Kuch, Jill Uhrich and Mark Kunitzer. Each one of the spotlights will highlight what has inspired them to be fit and healthy, as well as what motivates them to continue to make healthy lifestyle choices.

Yeo & Yeo was named one of Michigan’s Best and Brightest Companies in Wellness in 2014 and 2015, an initiative that recognizes and celebrates quality and excellence in worksite health. The program highlights companies that promote a culture of wellness.
“We are committed to the health and wellness of our employees, and our goal is to help them be empowered to make real changes in their health and lifestyle behaviors,” said Thomas E. Hollerback, president and CEO of Yeo & Yeo.
Yeo & Yeo supports the wellness of its employees by providing an AED for every office and encouraging life-saving training. The Michigan accounting firm offers a gold level healthcare plan, relieving its employees of a large portion of premiums. In addition to keeping healthcare costs low, the firm has a high percentage of participation in its wellness plan which includes a further healthcare premium reduction incentive. Another initiative is the firm’s Fitbit Fitness Program. Monthly, themed challenges for individuals and teams, along with prizes and friendly competition, have resulted in a high level of involvement. The firm also provides free flu shots for all employees who elect to participate.
