The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and the Healthy Ohio Business Council recently presented Vitamix with a Healthy Ohio Healthy Worksite Award.
The Healthy Ohio Healthy Worksite Awards recognize Ohio employers who demonstrate a commitment to employee wellness through comprehensive worksite health promotion and wellness programs. Applicants were scored on the extent to which their wellness programs facilitate and encourage employee health, enhance productivity and ensure a healthy work environment.
Applicants were eligible to receive one of three levels of achievement: Gold, Silver or Bronze. Vitamix was awarded a Gold Award in the medium-sized business category (301-1,000 employees).
“Our comprehensive employee wellness program is an extension of the Vitamix vision, which is to improve the vitality of people’s lives and liberate the world from conventional food and beverage preparation boundaries,” said Jodi Berg, president and CEO, Vitamix. “From nutrition to education to exercise, we provide a wide variety of incentives and options to help our employees reach their personal health and fitness goals.”
