Normandale Community College recently received a 2015 Wellness by Design Bronze Award for excellence in worksite wellness from Hennepin County. The award recognizes organizations in the county that make employee health a priority through creative and effective wellness initiatives.
Wellness by Design Awards were presented to Hennepin County employers that demonstrated accomplishments in management support, wellness infrastructure, assessment, evaluation, communication, and programming. A new wrinkle this year was a "+Green" designation for companies that minimize their impact on the environment. Normandale was one of 53 recipients (of the 81 who received the Wellness by Design) to receive the "+Green" designation.
Applications for the Wellness by Design Awards are due in the spring every other year. To get more information about Wellness by Design you can go to http://www.hennepin.us/publichealthpromotion.
