The Oklahoma State University Health Access Network was named a Certified Healthy Oklahoma Business last week in recognition of efforts to promote health and wellness for its employees.
“Businesses that are Certified Healthy see a great value and return on their investment in that their employees will have decreased health costs and absenteeism, increased productivity and better morale overall,” said Lindsay James, OSU-HAN program specialist. “The policies and procedures we implemented promote healthy lifestyles that touch not only employees, but visitors and employees’ families as well.”
The Certified Healthy Oklahoma Program is a free, voluntary statewide certification aimed at showcasing businesses, campuses, communities, schools, congregations and other organizations that are committed to supporting healthy choices through environmental and policy change.
The program was founded through a collaborative initiative by the Oklahoma Turning Point Council, the Oklahoma Academy for State Goals, the Oklahoma State Chamber and the Oklahoma State Department of Health. To learn more about the program, visit the Certified Healthy Oklahoma website.
