Arthrex is pleased to announce it's been recognized as a Platinum-Level Fit-Friendly Worksite by the American Heart Association (AHA) for the third year in a row for the company's efforts in creating a culture of health in the workplace through progressive leadership and employee wellness initiatives.
“Fit-Friendly” companies apply for certification as Platinum, Gold and Community Innovation award levels based on meeting specific criteria such as offering physical activity options at the worksite, providing nutritional education and healthy food options and promoting a general culture of health at the workplace.
To achieve platinum-level status, a worksite must fulfill all gold-level criteria and demonstrate at least one behavior change, cost savings outcome or positive return on investment (as documented by supporting data).
"Our partnership with AHA has helped facilitate our investment in comprehensive wellness programs for employees that encourage positive lifestyle changes and long-term results," said Arthrex Wellness Coordinator Monica Dubroja. "In support of our commitment to employee wellness, Arthrex is proud to offer health-related educational opportunities as well as an on-site fitness program, gym membership reimbursement and healthy lunches prepared daily."
Arthrex has been recognized by the AHA as a Fit-Friendly Worksite for the past five years, beginning at the gold level in 2011 and 2012 and qualifying at the platinum level each year since 2013.
As part of our corporate community mission of Making People Better, Arthrex is passionate about contributing to a stronger, healthier community.
