PARK RIDGE, N.J.,  Feb. 18, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- The Hertz Corporation (NYSE:
HTZ) has announced that its worldwide headquarters in  Park Ridge, NJ  and U.S.

"Physical activity and employee wellness are important priorities at Hertz. We
are honored and excited to be recognized by the American Heart Association as a
Platinum-Level Fit-Friendly Worksite," said  Mark P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer. "We're committed to providing the best workplace
environment possible. This will benefit our employees' health and produce even
more positive results for our worksites overall."  

Platinum-level employers offer employees physical activity options and promote a
wellness culture in the workplace. Companies must implement at least nine
criteria outlined by the American Heart Association in the areas of physical
activity, nutrition and culture as well as demonstrate measurable outcomes
related to workplace wellness.

Promoting daily physical activity with classes and fitness equipment, the Hertz
Fitness Centers at each worksite offer subsidized gym memberships and other
incentives. The Centers have hosted Annual Walk at Work days for over 10 years
and promote weight management programs on an ongoing basis.  Hertz also runs
fitness incentive programs throughout the year such as the Steps to Success
Walking Challenge.  

To further promote a wellness culture, Hertz cafeterias and vending machines
offer healthy food choices. Hertz also offers free preventative care services,
including free onsite biometric screenings, with the opportunity for employees
to earn premium credits towards their health insurance.

"The Fit-Friendly Worksites Program offers a unique, easy-to-implement
opportunity for corporations to increase employees' physical activity, which
will help improve their health - and their employers' bottom line," said 
LeighAnne Baker, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, The
Hertz Corporation.

Recognition is a critical component of the Fit-Friendly Worksites program.
Qualifying worksites have the right to use the program's annual recognition seal
for internal communications and with external, recruitment-related
communications.
