“Good companies know that their employees are their most valuable asset. Great companies adopt policies that support employees’ efforts to reduce health risks and are bold about motivating them through bold strategies, programs, and tactics” states Ryan Picarella, President of WELCOA.
Wisconsin’s newest Well Workplace Award winners did just that. The Wellness Council of Wisconsin (WCWI) and its national affiliate, WELCOA, recently presented its coveted Gold Well Workplace Award to Racine Metal-Fab, Ltd.; and its Small Business Well Workplace Award to Core Creative, Inc. By achieving the Well Workplace Award, these organizations have made a long-lasting commitment to the health and well-being of its employees.
