Read more about a few of the ways that J.B. Hunt helps employees focus on self-care, create healthy routines and manage their stress at work!

Staying Active at Corporate

J.B. Hunt’s on-site gym facilities make it easy to fit a workout into your busy schedule! We have two gyms open 24/7 to all Northwest Arkansas employees, one located on our corporate campus and the other at the Lowell, Ark. terminal.

Employees can take advantage of top-of-the-line cardio equipment, like treadmills and ellipticals, lifting equipment, weights and workout machines. The fitness center located on the corporate campus also has a full spin studio where employees can sign up for fitness classes for a guided workout.

If you need some fresh air, employees can also get outdoors and take advantage of the beautiful walking and biking trails that run throughout our corporate campus in Northwest Arkansas. Spanning several miles, the trails are great for lunchtime strolls with coworkers, or for getting an outdoor workout in!

Mental Health & Stress Management Resources

A big part of establishing a healthy routine is taking care of your mental health. Counseling is a great way to confidentially talk through any feelings or situations in your life that you might need support in resolving.

All Northwest Arkansas J.B. Hunt employees, and family members, are eligible for up to eight free counseling sessions with The Joshua Center. Employees outside of Northwest Arkansas can also benefit from two 30-minute sessions with a licensed counselor by video or phone at no cost through J.B. Hunt.

Our employee resource groups (ERGs) are another great resource in supporting your well-being at work. ERGs provide the opportunity to build community with people with similar interests, and regularly host Lunch & Learns and events that promote healthy discussion around topics like stress management or the importance of maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

COVID-19 Health & Wellness Support

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, J.B. Hunt has remained committed to helping keep our employees safe. In addition to implementing mask and social distancing policies, we have held a number of on-site COVID-19 vaccination clinics for all interested employees and their families.

If you are a current J.B. Hunt employee who has not yet received the vaccine and would like to, visit the People site for more information on upcoming COVID-19 vaccination clinics or check out Castlight for additional resources.
