Health Net recently received the American Heart Association’s (AHA) coveted Gold-level recognition award as a 2016 Fit-Friendly Worksite. This is Health Net’s second Gold-level honor in a row acknowledging the wealth of activities and resources our organization offers for getting fit, eating healthy and staying well.
“We were first given this award in 2015, and are delighted to sustain it for 2016,” said Nancy Wongvipat Kalev, director of health education, cultural and linguistic services. “Our recognition stems from our increased efforts to keep our employees healthy and informed through a culture of wellness in the workplace. Everything from our annual Heart Walks, Walking Challenge program and our webinar series, to our online and telephonic wellness programs is what placed us among this elite group of awardees.”
What it means
As a Fit-Friendly Worksite, Health Net receives recognition on the Fit-Friendly Honor Roll on the AHA website, recognition by the AHA at local events, and in the communications materials supporting the recognition program. We’ll use the AHA’s Fit-Friendly Worksites Gold seal on internal and external communications for recruitment purposes.
“We couldn’t be happier to receive the Fit-Friendly recognition,” said Wongvipat Kalev. “Health Net is in an exciting time of growth as part of the Centene family. We hope our internal wellness efforts encourage our employees make healthy mental and physical choices, and that these efforts will translate externally to help transform our members’ lives, one person at a time.”
