The City of Wheaton has been named one of the “Healthiest Companies in America” by Interactive Health, whose workplace wellness program helps businesses invest in the health of their employees. Wheaton is one of 151 companies across the country recognized this year for empowering employees to make significant and sometimes life-saving changes to improve their health. This is the third year the City of Wheaton has won the award.
To win the recognition, companies must have reached or exceeded a 70 percent participation rate in their organization’s wellness program, and their workforce’s overall health risk was low, based on the results of an annual health evaluation.
"It's an honor for the City of Wheaton to be named one of the healthiest companies in America for the third year in a row. The health and well-being of all of our employees is a top priority for us and we're excited that so many people have been positively engaged with our wellness program this past year. We look forward to another year of working together to deliver a comprehensive program focused on enhancing the physical, financial and mental health of our employees." said City of Wheaton Director of Human Resources Holly Schulz.
