G&A Partners earns platinum UWWC Healthy Worksite Wellness Award amidst pandemic
UTAH – March 4, 2021 – The Utah Worksite Wellness Council (UWWC) recognized G&A Partners today as one of Utah’s healthiest employers by presenting the professional employer organizations (PEO) with a platinum award for its efforts.
The UWWC’s Healthy Worksite Wellness Awards Program recognizes Utah employers for their exemplary work in worksite wellness and their commitment to improving their employees’ health and well-being.
The Platinum Award presented to G&A represents the pinnacle of results-oriented worksite wellness programming and is granted to organizations that have forged new ground by linking health-promotion objectives to business outcomes. G&A’s Evolve™ wellness program encourages healthy lifestyle practices through employee competitions, initiatives, and educational tools for G&A employees and its more than 55,000 client worksite employees.
“We have had to get creative this year when it comes to maintaining our healthy culture while most of our employees work remotely,” said Michelle Mikesell, vice president of Corporate Human Resources for G&A Partners. “Our Employee Experience Council hosts weekly yoga, High-intensity interval training (HIIT), and Zumba sessions via Zoom to ensure our employees take some time to get moving and engage with their colleagues.”
Mikesell said G&A has also presented its employees with an extra eight hours in paid time off to take as a “wellness day” this spring as a thank you and acknowledgment that despite the global COVID-19 pandemic and various natural disasters they’ve had to overcome in recent years, they never missed a single payroll.
