Wellington Recognized As Fit Worksite

The Village of Wellington has been recognized as a Gold Level recipient of the American Heart Association’s Fit-Friendly Worksites recognition program.

The program recognizes employers who champion the health of their employees by creating physical activity programs within the workplace. Wellington is among 38 Palm Beach County companies and organizations that have been recognized as “Fit-Friendly.”

Last year, more than 100 Wellington employees participated in at least one of the wellness programs offered through the “Commit to be Fit” program. Programs offered through the initiative include offering employees physical activity support; providing/increasing healthy eating options at the worksite; promoting a wellness culture; and implementing at least nine criteria as outlined by the American Heart Association in the areas of physical activity, nutrition and culture.

Wellington also received the Worksite Innovation Award for achieving all criteria for Gold Level recognition and leading the development and implementation of innovative, effective programs that promote physical activity, especially in the workplace.
