JP Griffin Group is being recognized once again for making efforts to positively affect the health and well-being of their employees, their families, and their community by implementing comprehensive worksite wellness strategies.
In a virtual ceremony held yesterday, the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) awarded JP Griffin Group the highest award possible award, with Platinum level recognition. This is the third consecutive year JP Griffin Group is being recognized as a Platinum level recipient.
"With employees spending nearly half of their waking hours at work, at least before the COVID-19 pandemic, the workplace represents an important setting for promoting healthy behaviors," said Jeff Griffin, Founder and President of JP Griffin Group.
He continued, "As one of Arizona's largest employee benefits advisors, it's incumbent on us to 'walk the walk' when it comes to promoting wellness, not only for our own employees and their families, but for those of our clients as well."
Minimum qualifications to be considered for a Healthy Arizona Worksite Award includes attending the Healthy Arizona Worksite Program training and developing a plan to improve employee health and safety. To qualify for the Silver and Gold levels of the award, employers need to support employee health through policy and systems changes. The Platinum award recognizes businesses making an impact both within and beyond their walls, addressing one or more of the many health challenges impacting communities across the state.
"Our clients often lean on us when it comes to planning and implementing a sound workplace wellness program", Jeff said. "When done right, wellness plays a critical role in fostering workplace camaraderie and promoting healthy lifestyles, while offering the added benefit of helping to contain healthcare costs".
The Healthy Arizona Worksites Program is a public health initiative offered by the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH). Its mission is to help employers learn how to successfully implement worksite wellness initiatives to improve the health of their employees and businesses.
