Glendale CC earns state award for employee health programs

Posted

Glendale Community College was recognized by the Healthy Arizona Worksite Program as achieving the Platinum Level of excellence in worksite wellness.

The Healthy Arizona Worksite Award recognizes employers that are making efforts to positively affect the health and well-being of their employees, their families and their community by implementing comprehensive worksite wellness strategies. To qualify for the Platinum Level of the award, employers must provide extraordinary support of employee health through policy and systems changes.

Platinum is the highest level that companies and organizations can achieve.

Glendale Community College received this recognition by supporting employee health and implemented programs to create a healthy workplace. Margo Bates, GCC Wellness Fitness Supervisor, will represent GCC at the Virtual Healthy Arizona Worksite annual event to take place Tuesday, June 14.

“To encourage and support employees, GCC promotes holistic and inclusive health and wellness events/opportunities to increase engagement and happiness,” Bates shared in a news release. “I want all employees to be healthy so they can perform at their best, at work and home.”

Glendale’s north campus is located at 5727 W. Happy Valley Road, and its main campus is at 6000 W. Olive Ave.

The Healthy Arizona Worksites Program is designed to help Arizona employers implement evidence-based worksite wellness initiatives to improve the health of their employees and businesses.

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 successfully implement worksite wellness initiatives to improve the health of their employees.
