The Worksite Wellness Alliance of Vermont held their Annual Conference recently in Burlington.
Mascoma Bank was named one of Excellence in Worksite Wellness award winners by the Vermont Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness & Sports.
The Governor’s Council is a physical activity promotion and advocacy group comprised of approximately 20 volunteers, appointed by the Governor and representing a broad spectrum of Vermonters. Their mission is to promote health and wellness through physical activity for all people living in Vermont at all fitness and ability levels.
“In Vermont, employers now understand that employees who make healthy lifestyle choices are more productive and invested in their careers. Business leaders see the benefits of promoting wellness on and off the job, because it affects their bottom line,” said Janet Franz, chair of the Governor’s Council. “The proof is in the number of Vermont companies with topnotch wellness programs. The awards and conference highlight the best practices and give employers an opportunity to share their experiences and learn from each other.”
