Is Your Business A Winner When It Comes To Employee Wellness/

The Worksite Wellness Council of Louisville, a Mayor’s Healthy Hometown Movement partner, is encouraging Louisville businesses with worksite wellness programs to apply for the 2018 Worksite Wellness Awards.

The Mayor’s Healthy Hometown Movement has been recognizing businesses committed to fostering employee health and wellness for 10 years. The awards are based on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Worksite Health ScoreCard criteria, in recognition of policies, programs and strategies proven to work. Four levels of winners will be awarded based on ScoreCard results:  Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. In addition, several “Fleur de Lis” awards will be presented to honor businesses with exemplary or unique worksite wellness programs or initiatives.

“We want to honor businesses that have implemented policies and practices that foster healthy, productive employees, and we encourage them to apply for the awards,” said Allison Ledford, board of director’s president for the Worksite Wellness Council of Louisville.

Winners will be announced on May 17 at the Worksite Wellness Council of Louisville’s Annual Conference to be held at Gheens Foundation Lodge at Beckley Creek Park in the beautiful Parklands of Floyds Fork.

The annual conference and awards are sponsored by Norton Healthcare, Humana, Anthem, Musselman Hotels and the Louisville chapter of the Society of Human Resource Managers.

The Worksite Wellness Council of Louisville assists area employers to establish and improve worksite wellness through workshops and conversations on a variety of wellness topics throughout the year, as well as an annual conference.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), worksite wellness programs enhance worker productivity, reduce absences, reduce health care costs and help to shift the health care paradigm from treatment to prevention.
