2016 LiveWell NKY Worksite Application
The LiveWell NKY Worksite Award is a free, voluntary certification designed to recognize and honor worksites that are committed to supporting healthy choices in physical activity, healthy eating and tobacco prevention through policies, programs and environmental changes within their organization. This award celebrates worksites that place a high value on employee health and overall well-being, while taking steps to help them plan for cost effective future strategies to create a healthier workforce.

The LiveWell NKY Worksite Award application will allow worksites to assess their current employee wellness practices and be rewarded for efforts already in place – such as health screenings offered through an insurer, tobacco-free policy,  and other initiatives that promote a healthy workforce. The worksite will receive a score based on their efforts, which will translate into a bronze, silver or gold award level. Recognized worksites will also have access to technical assistance to further improve the health of their work environment that can then help them reach higher recognition levels in the future.

We are excited that your business is taking this opportunity to become a designated 2016 LiveWell NKY Worksite!
