Chandler Recognized as a Healthy Arizona Worksite Gold Award recipient

Healthy Arizona Worksite BadgeThe City of Chandler has been recognized as a 2017 Healthy Arizona Worksite Gold Award recipient for excellence in worksite wellness.
 
The Healthy Arizona Worksite Award recognizes businesses that are making efforts to positively affect the health and well-being of their employees, their families, and their community through evidence-based worksite health initiatives and promising programs.
 
This award showcases the City's commitment to supporting employees as they work toward living a healthier life. The City will be recognized by the Arizona Department of Health Services and will be featured in statewide communications from the Healthy Arizona Worksite Program.
 
The City and its Employee Wellness Committee received this recognition by actively encouraging a healthier workplace since its inception and supporting employee health in the following ways:
 
- Providing free onsite health screenings, such as biometric measurements, mobile mammography and prostate screenings;
- Actively seeking input from co-workers to provide a variety of wellness education sessions, some of which have been led by other City employees;
- Hosting quarterly blood drives, annual flu shot clinics, annual biometric screenings and participating in health observances, like the American Heart Association's Wear Red Day.
 
The Healthy Arizona Worksites Program is a public health initiative offered by the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Maricopa County Department of Public Health. Its mission is to help employers learn how to successfully implement worksite wellness initiatives to improve the health of their employees and businesses.
