Last week, the city of Highland Village was presented with the Gold Level Work Health Achievement Award by the American Heart Association “for taking significant steps to build a culture of health and well-being for the workforce.”
The city is one of about 450 organizations in the county to complete the index assessment this year and received a near-perfect score of 149 of 151, according to a news release from the city of Highland Village. The City Council received a presentation about the award during last week’s council meeting.
“This recognition adders the efforts of the human resources department’s work in providing a healthy workplace through such programs as the Wellright wellness initiative that is used by nearly 80% of City employees,” said Mayor Charlotte Wilcox. “The City clearly values the health of their employees and supports their efforts in achieving a healthy lifestyle.”
