“The message and engagement from the top is key. It’s helped us to make wellness a standing agenda item during our all-staff meetings so all employees can hear what’s going well and what the committee needs help with."
Littleton, Colorado (PRWEB) April 24, 2017
MINES has been recognized as a Health Links Certified Healthy Business Partner due to their holistic approach to creating a culture of health and safety in the workplace.
Health Links TM, a nonprofit initiative at the University of Colorado School of Public Health, recognizes businesses around the state for their excellence in workplace health and safety. Health Links assesses businesses via an online assessment tool that benchmarks their health and safety efforts. Health Links also provide businesses with expert advising by a local Lead Advisor and connects them with community resources to help them bring health to work. As a Certified Healthy Business Leader, MINES has been recognized for holding manager and supervisors accountable for supporting health and safety, integrating health and safety efforts, actively preventing workplace injuries, and extending health and safety services to employee spouses, domestic partners, dependents, and the greater community.
MINES & Associates promotes health and well-being to our clients through the services we offer as well as through community efforts. It only makes sense to promote those same ideals internally to our staff and to try and create a place that’s healthy and safe to work in. We think about wellness holistically whether it be psychological, physical, financial, etc. All of the factors of a person’s health are important to us. We have a very tight-knit group and we also have strong support from our CEO. He regularly checks in with staff members about their individual health and safety goals and he takes pride in keeping our workplace safe. We haven’t had a worker’s comp claim in over 14 years, and only 2 in the 35 years we have been in business! Ultimately, healthy employees are happier employees.
“The message and engagement from the top is key. It’s helped us to make wellness a standing agenda item during our all-staff meetings so all employees can hear what’s going well and what the committee needs help with. As we are a smaller employee group, the above strategies are helpful. If we were a larger employee group we would recommend tying wellness goals to actual measurable health outcomes while paying close attention to the behavioral economics of participation.” – The MINES Wellness Committee
