GREENFIELD — Robb Farris, human resources coordinator of Keihin NA, told the Greenfield Kiwanis Club about his business’s onsite clinic and wellness programs. Kehin/IPT has 900 employees in Indiana. The manufacturing facility in Greenfield, built 30 years ago, was the first one in North America. The company’s North American headquarters is in Anderson. They have other facilities in Michigan, Ohio and North Carolina.
Several years ago Keihin entered into a national health program that placed an onsite clinic at the facility here in Greenfield. The current provider is Health Stat. They operate the clinic adjacent to the production facility 40 hours per week. Keihin provides financial incentives in the form of lower health care premiums for participation in the company’s wellness programs. Participation in the the wellness program can include an annual blood draw, consultation with the doctor about the results, routine wellness tests, seeing the dentist, having a skin check and/or exercising.
