We are pleased to announce that Bryan University was recognized recently 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. The minimum qualifications to be considered for this award include attending the Healthy Arizona Worksite Program training and developing a plan to improve employee health and safety. To qualify for the Silver and Gold levels of the award, employers need to support employee health through policy and systems changes. The Platinum award recognizes businesses making an impact both within and beyond their walls addressing one or more of the many health challenges impacting communities across the state.
Bryan University is proud to support its employees’ physical, mental, and financial health and well-being. To that end, the Bryan U Office of Employee Excellence has developed programs to provide employees with resources and information to support their health and well-being including:
- Monthly wellness “lunch and learns” on topics such as fitness, nutrition, and financial management.
- Monthly wellness challenges and an online wellness incentive program.
- Paid time off for volunteer work.
- Before the COVID restrictions, Bryan also offered employees monthly chair massages, an onsite gym, and a walking workstation.
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 (MCDPH). Its mission is to help employers learn how to successfully implement worksite wellness initiatives to improve the health of their employees and businesses.
