Stretching Productivity

Recently, Truth Hardware was recognized by Enterprise Minnesota for their Overall Wellness Program. Repetitive work and the aging process can take a toll on muscles and joints.  Experts have found that stretching can help reduce muscle-related discomfort and reduce future injuries. In addition, the stretch breaks reduce fatigue of the muscles and help increase the productivity of our employees.

Therefore, each work-day, employees at the Owatonna-based plant on the manufacturing floor participate in stretching breaks. These stretching breaks are usually broken up into three different segments for up to 15 minutes each work-day. The feedback from our employees have been nothing but positive.
