The Center has recently been recognized for the 5th consecutive year by the American Heart Association as a Fit-Friendly Worksite. The credit for the award and recognition goes to Center team members who routinely make health and wellness a priority in their lives. Kudos and Congrats to all!
Leading balanced lives is a core value Center team members aspire to and health and wellness is an important aspect of balance in life. Health & Wellness Committee member and Client Service Manager Jennie Bauder said, “the AHA Platinum Award is displayed in a common area of The Center and it symbolizes our commitment to everyday healthy habits.” Here are some of the healthy habits practiced in our workplace that helped achieve American Heart Association recognition:
- Physical activity options are available during the workday
- Healthy eating options are provided in the office lunch area
- Intentional focus on wellness as part of our culture
Gerri Harmer, Client Service Assistant, has been a Health & Wellness Committee member since day one. She added, “ I am energized by the positive impact our program has on my colleagues and look forward to bringing new ideas to the group for 2013.”
