Breaking records in worksite wellness!

UND hit an all-time record for staff and faculty involvement in WORKSITE WELLNESS programming!!!!!!  A total of 50% of the workforce took part in at least one Work Well or related-wellness activities (Health Club Credit, Healthy Blues, etc.). This will allow UND to apply for the American Heart Association Platinum level Fit-Friendly Company award for Year 2012 by achieving the new participation level criteria.

UND has received four Platinum-level awards and six overall national awards from the American Heart Association.  UND was the first organization in North Dakota to receive a national Fit-Friendly Company award in 2007. Criteria for the award includes providing programming in physical activity and nutrition, providing a culture of wellness (worksite has wellness program coordinator, health risk assessments, preventative health programing, etc.), and has at least 50% of employee participation in worksite wellness activities.
