Local Employers Recognized for Worksite Wellness Efforts

CONTACT: Carol Schliesinger, 207-8172


SAN ANTONIO (Dec. 14, 2018) –  The San Antonio Business Group on Health, a committee of the Mayor’s Fitness Council, recognized 51 local businesses for their worksite wellness initiatives.


The 2018 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 and education, physical activity, nutrition, smoking and 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 must achieve a minimum of 18 activities across these categories, while platinum-level awardees need to achieve a minimum of 72 activities.


The Healthy Workplace Recognition Program was launched in 2010. This year, more than 120,000 employees in Bexar County are impacted by these health and wellness initiatives. Ten employers improved their award level from the previous year.
