Amity Regional School District No. 5 was recognized in the Gold Category for Healthy Workplace Employer Recognition by the Business Council of Fairfield County on February 14th.
The Business Council of Fairfield County hosted its Healthy Workplace Employer Recognition Program on Thursday, February 14th. The Healthy Workplace Employer Recognition Program was established eleven years ago to highlight the efforts of employers who understand the competitive advantage of a healthy workforce. The recognition program is presented by The Business Council’s Health, Wellbeing and Safety Roundtable, with the leadership support of USI Insurance Services and UnitedHealthcare of CT, Inc. and generous assistance from ConnectiCare and Aon. This year 57 companies were honored for their wellness achievements by four categories of distinction - Platinum, Gold, Silver and Innovation - awarded on the basis of program components and outcomes. Amity Regional School District No. 5 was recognized in the Gold Category.
“Much like investing in your financial future, investing in your health can also yield dividends. Employers and employees share responsibility for protecting and strengthening future physical and mental wellbeing,” commented Matthew Fair, Vice President, USI Insurance Services and co-chair of the Healthy, Wellbeing and Safety Roundtable. “A culture of wellness may start with an individual, but it is truly a team effort. Our 2019 Healthy Workplace honorees are being recognized for working collectively to achieve their goals of educating and motivating their workforce to take stock of and responsibility for their health."
