G&A Partners Wins UWWC Platinum Physical Wellness Award
The UWWC’s Healthy Worksite Wellness Awards Program recognizes Utah employers of all sizes for their outstanding work in worksite wellness and their commitment to improving their employees’ health and well-being through their benefits programs.
The Platinum Award presented to G&A is the top accolade of the results-oriented worksite wellness programming. G&A’s Evolve™ wellness program encourages healthy lifestyle practices through employee competitions, initiatives, and educational tools. This is the seventh consecutive year that G&A has been recognized by UWWC.
“Our employees are the heart and soul of G&A Partners,” said Michelle Mikesell, Chief People Officer for G&A Partners. “Building on their inspirational stories of supporting one another, in 2021 we created 'Wellness Wednesdays' to publish personal employee ideas on mental, physical, nutritional, and financial health. The success of this program was phenomenal and employees from all over the nation shared personal experiences to support and educate the collective workforce.”
In addition to the Platinum Award, G&A also received the Innovation Award. This award is given to companies that take an innovative approach to their health and wellness programs in six different categories. G&A earned this award in the social category by focusing on creating a positive, social work environment where employees can connect and feel a sense of community. Over the past two years G&A has revamped the company intranet to allow employees to get to know each other on an informal level by giving kudos, sharing heath tips and more while working remotely.
Mikesell concludes, “It’s a humbling experience to watch as our nationwide team comes together and demonstrates daily that together we are stronger than when we stand alone no matter where we work.”
