Governor's Worksite Wellness Award

Tailored Label Products (TLP) Named a Governor’s Worksite Wellness Award Winner

Governor's Worksite Wellness AwardTailored Label Products (TLP) of Menomonee Falls, WI, has been named a silver level award winner for the Governor’s Worksite Wellness Award in the medium company category. The designation, from the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, recognizes companies across the state that are committed to improving employee wellness.

“At TLP, wellness is an important part of our culture.  Our Wellness Committee continually works hard to provide employees with new and engaging opportunities to improve their physical and mental wellbeing,” said Nicole Richard, Director of Human Resources. “We are proud that our wellness initiatives are creating a healthier, happier workplace.  We are honored to receive recognition among other great companies.”

The Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness was reestablished in 2012 and identified worksite wellness as a key area of focus in promoting good health in the state. Studies have shown that employee health affects a company’s bottom line in many ways, including decreased healthcare costs, increased productivity and better morale.

Applications for the Worksite Wellness Award are evaluated on criteria that include:

•    Program infrastructure
•    Health education
•    Health screening and disease prevention and management
•    Physical activity and nutrition components
•    Tobacco use policies
•    Alcohol and other drug policies

“A company that cares about its employees’ health is often seen as a better place to work. Those companies save money by retaining workers who appreciate the benefit of a wellness program and they can attract new employees in a competitive market,” said Jon Morgan, worksite wellness coordinator with the Wisconsin Chronic Disease Program.

The Wisconsin Worksite Wellness Award uses evidence-based criteria deemed essential for a successful worksite wellness program. Baseline requirements include having commitment from senior management, maintaining a wellness team that meets regularly, offering educational materials and presentations on a variety of wellness topics, offering health risk assessments and promoting physical fitness and healthy eating.

MENOMONEE FALLS, WI (October 5, 2016) – Disability Rights Wisconsin (DRW) has recognized the winners of its “Spirit of ADA Awards” in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The awards recognize Wisconsin companies, organizations or individuals along with Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner who are positively changing and improving the lives of people with disabilities in Wisconsin.

“Since the passage of the ADA 25 years ago, people with disabilities have enjoyed increased access to employment, education, recreation, and government services, which contributes to better communities for all,” said Daniel Idzikowski, Executive Director of Disability Rights Wisconsin. “At DRW we advocate every day so that all people with disabilities can exercise the full extent of their rights and pursue the greatest possible quality of life,” he noted.

Tailored label was presented with the “Spirit of ADA Awards” Gold Award for its ongoing efforts to promote workplace opportunities for workers with disabilities.
TLP CEO Mike Erwin commented, “TLP understands that it is first and foremost, a company of people. That’s why we are so closely connected and committed to our employees and the communities in which we do business. From a wide variety of community involvement and charitable initiatives to a strong focus on employee development, we’re determined to keep positively touching the lives of people in every way possible. As an integral part of these initiatives, Tailored Label Products supports employing people with disabilities as an important component of our diverse workforce.  Our company, employees and community all benefit from the highly productive and gainful employment of people with disabilities. The TLP team gains additional benefit and inspiration from the opportunity to provide training and mentoring for fellow employees as they overcome workplace challenges. It is a great honor to receive this award as it is for a cause that is very near to our hearts.”
In 2014, Tailored Label Products was honored with the prestigious National APSE Employer Award in the medium-size company category.  The APSE (Association of People Supporting EmploymentFirst) recognizes model companies for employment of individuals with disabilities, affording them the same wages and benefits as other employees, supporting the concept of integrated employment in its purest form. Additionally, Tailored Label Products and employee Patrick Young were recognized by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, as helping to inspire a new initiative Walker unveiled in his 2014 State of the State speech. The effort, called “A Better Bottom Line,” is aimed at getting more Wisconsin companies to hire people with disabilities including autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury and mental illness.

An awards luncheon was held on Monday, October 5, at the Wisconsin Club, 900 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee to honoring the Gold, Silver and Bronze award recipients and special honoree, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner.
