TCHD Receives Missouri Workplace Wellness Award

The Taney County Health Department (TCHD) was recently awarded the Missouri Workplace Wellness Award, Bronze Level.

According to a release from TCHD, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), Missouri Council for Activity and Nutrition (MOCAN), and the University of Missouri Extension recognize employers with this award who invest in creating a workplace environment that supports healthy behaviors. Employers are recognized based on criteria for their level of support: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
American adults spend a significant amount of the day at work, so it is a logical place to find new ways to encourage and promote wellness.

“The health department has had a robust employee health campaign since 2016.” states Kara Miller, Community Health Educator in the release, “The campaign focuses on all aspects of health, including emotional and financial.” 

"Our primary focus is health and prevention, and that applies to our team as well”, adds Lisa Marshall, TCHD Director, in the release. “We know we can best serve our community when our team is healthy. The Missouri Workplace Wellness Award is an exciting honor, and we are pleased to see our values rewarded through this designation."
