We’ve been eating our veggies and squeezing in our workouts and we have the abs … or rather the award to prove it. The Center was recognized as one of Michigan’s Healthiest Employers for the second consecutive year. Honorees were chosen from employers across Michigan whose policies and programs promote a healthy workforce. The statewide program is sponsored by Priority Health, Crain’s Detroit Business and MiBiz with one simple goal: To showcase how companies are using wellness programs to make a positive impact on their employees’ lives – both at work and at home.
A focus on wellness is part of The Center culture and has been an ongoing initiative since 2007. Planner Laurie Renchik says, “Everyone gets involved in one way or another, either taking ownership in planning activities, supporting ongoing programs or lending a helping hand and encouraging others to participate.”
Winners were chosen in two regions and five categories based on the number of employees. The Center took honors in the Metro Detroit region in the 5 to 99 employee category.
The project was sponsored by Priority health, data was collected by Indianapolis based Healthiest Employer LLC. Crain’s Detroit Business and MiBiz produced the promotional supplement as media sponsors of the project.
