Supporting employee health and wellness
Norfolk Southern’s voluntary WellNS program helps employees maintain healthy lifestyles. Employees and their spouses can join fitness centers, sign up for Weight Watchers, and design home workouts with a virtual trainer – to name a few benefits. A WellNS website offers information on topics such as getting fit, managing stress, and quitting smoking.

More than 8,700 employees – about 30 percent of NS’ workforce – earned points and pocketed up to $260 a year by walking, participating in challenges, and tracking their health through this WellNS program. Employees at more than 50 work locations across NS can monitor their weight, blood pressure, and body mass index at “HealthZone” stations.
