HCC Launches Worksite Wellness Program
Work Healthy! is a free program that helps businesses promote health
February 26, 2014
The Healthy Community Coalition (HCC) of Greater Franklin County would like to introduce you to Work Healthy!, a free program that businesses and organizations can win awards and media recognition for having and promoting healthy worksite policies and practices. Take steps to make your workplace healthier and you may qualify to win a treadmill!
The HCC Workplace Award recognizes businesses and organizations in Greater Franklin County that have placed a high priority on promoting good health for their employees. By supporting tobacco-free lifestyles, encouraging physical activity, and/or promoting healthy eating, businesses and organizations may realize the benefits of a healthier workforce including reduced absenteeism, reduced disability costs, reduced health care costs, and improved productivity.
Participation is easy, engages staff, and has many benefits. You may already qualify if your organization has a written tobacco–free and substance abuse policy, offers healthy food choices, or promotes health and wellness in a variety of ways. Healthy Community Coalition staff can provide sample policies and technical assistance to help you qualify for an award.
For more information on Work Healthy! and how it can benefit your business, contact Heather Fellman at (207) 779-2934 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Healthy Community Coalition (HCC) is an affiliate of Franklin Community Health Network with a mission to measurably improve the health and well-being of all people in Franklin County and neighboring towns using a coordinated approach of education, health promotion and outreach.
