Local Employers Recognized for Worksite Wellness Efforts

Contact: Carol Schliesinger

Public Relations Manager


SAN ANTONIO (Dec. 7, 2017) –  The San Antonio Business Group on Health, a committee of the Mayor’s Fitness Council, recognized 50 local businesses who are working to improve employee health through worksite wellness initiatives.

The 2017 Healthy Workplace Recognition Program awarded employers with bronze, silver, gold, or platinum-level awards. To receive recognition, employers had to meet criteria in six categories: culture, health promotion & education, physical activity, nutrition, smoking & tobacco cessation, and value-based benefits & design.

The level of award is based on the number of activities each company implemented in the six categories. For example, bronze-level awardees had to achieve a minimum of 18 activities across these categories, while platinum-level awardees had to achieve a minimum of 72 activities.

The Healthy Workplace Recognition Program was launched in 2010. This year, more than 70,000 employees in Bexar County are impacted by these health and wellness initiatives.
