FORT COLLINS, COLO. – The Wellness Council of America (WELCOA) has named Heath Construction in Fort Collins, Colo., one of America’s Healthiest Small Companies.
Heath is one of only eight organizations nationwide – and the only Colorado company – to receive the Small Businesses Well Workplace Award in 2013.
The award, based on WELCOA’s 10 steps to building a healthy small workplace, acknowledges Heath’s dedication to employee and community health and wellness through its Wellness Program. The WELCOA honor is the second for the program. In 2010, Heath Wellness received top honors from the Associated General Contractors of Colorado for such a progressive and comprehensive Wellness Program – a model of how Colorado construction firms can broaden benefit packages and more successfully recruit new employees in today’s competitive job market.
“By improving the health of Heath’s employees and families, we’re building confidence, pride, loyalty, job satisfaction, optimism and determination,” said Randy DeMario, Heath president. “You earn loyalty by showing you care. This is one way to attract and keep top-quality professionals – and ensure the long-term strength of the company.”
Families of employees also participate because, “Heath Wellness is an investment in the personal and work habits that empower our employees and their families,” DeMario said.
The program extends far beyond ordinary medical and vision benefits to spark new ideas, build a sense of team and empower wellness. Among the fun and informative activities offered over the years: a paddle boarding class at Horsetooth Reservoir; seminars on healthy shopping, alternatives in physical fitness, smart budgeting; and even health-focused cooking classes with a gourmet twist.
“You have to commit to the concept of a healthy office and work hard to run the program, but it’s worth the effort,” explained Jillene Toth, the company’s controller and Wellness Program director. “We’re thrilled to see noticeable results in the form of happier, healthier employees and families.”
