fit-friendly-workplaceEach year the American Heart Association recognizes employers who go above and beyond when it comes to their employees’ health…and we were recognized as a Gold Fit-Friendly Worksite for 2014.  We’re among an elite group of nationally-recognized awardees for our efforts to promote a healthy workplace.  As a Gold Level award recipient, we’ve been recognized for valuing the importance of a healthy workplace for our employees and taking the critical steps in creating a culture of wellness – as evidenced by our Wellness Ambassador Program.

This is the 4th year in a row that we’ve received the Gold Fit-Friendly Worksite award.  Thanks go out to all of you that helped plan our efforts, conduct brown bag sessions, become Wellness Ambassadors, and participated in our programs.  A special thanks to Kimberly O’Neill who provided steadfast support in the form of weekly updates and overall administrative support to the program.

Maybe you can join us in receiving the Gold Fit-Friendly Worksite award on Friday, January 16th, at 11:15 a.m. in the lobby of the 150 building.  Immediately afterwards, there’ll be a 15 to 20 minute Walk for Wellness.
