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.
