The Greater Flint Health Coalition and Commit to Fit! are pleased to announce that seven Genesee County businesses have qualified for the inaugural Commit to Fit! Certified Healthy Workplace Designation. This certification aims to acknowledge local businesses actively working to improve the health of their employees by providing workplace wellness programming and a healthy business environment.
With Americans spending 40% of their time at work or engaged in work related activities, employers play a large role in employee health. When employees are encouraged to engage in healthy habits at work, those strategies translate to their families and the community as a whole. Supporting a healthy workforce supports a healthy community, and these Genesee County workplaces are leading the way.
