Submissions For LiveWell Jefferson Healthy Business Awards Due April 2

NEW ORLEANS – The deadline for submissions for the LiveWell Jefferson Healthy Business Awards is Monday, April 2.

The LiveWell Jefferson Healthy Business Awards were created in 2016 to highlight and celebrate members of the Jefferson Chamber that are actively engaged in healthy initiatives in the workplace and also provide ideas for healthy changes that can be made.

“The Health and Wellness Committee wants to bring awareness to Jefferson Parish businesses regarding the value of healthy employees,” says Health and Wellness Chair Donna Austin. “We felt having a Healthy Business Award would be a great way to recognize businesses that have implemented wellness programs or are taking some action to encourage employee wellness.”

This year the award types include Most Creative, Best Employee Led and Up and Comer Award.

“We hope that these new categories will give members that don’t have a large budget for a sophisticated wellness program an opportunity to showcase their creative ways of encouraging and supporting healthy activities among their workforce,” Austin says.

Last year, the first year of the LiveWell Jefferson Healthy Business Awards, Laitram and Delta Personnel were the winners.

Is your company thinking outside of the box to inspire wellness among your employees? No matter the wellness program budget, companies nominated for this award are applying creative solutions to improve the physical, mental, financial or spiritual health of their employees. 

Best Employee Led Program

Do your coworkers plan a monthly healthy potluck, or have a weekly meditation session in a conference room? Even if your company doesn't have a budget for a wellness program and employees organize their own wellness ideas, nominate that company!

Up and Comer

Nominate a company whose wellness program is less than 2 years old and has hit the ground running. How has the company engaged their employees in the program?
