Cartus Awarded Platinum in Healthy Workplace Recognition Program

DANBURY, Conn. - Cartus Corporation, the premier provider of global relocation management, has been named a Platinum Award winner in The Business Council of Fairfield County's (Conn.) Healthy Workplace Employer Recognition Program. Cartus was recognized for its successful efforts in promoting a healthy workplace by virtue of such programs as its walk-in Wellness Center, which averages 4,000 employee visits annually; a continuing series of lunchtime seminars on issues such as cancer, smoking cessation, and nutrition; and a company-wide emphasis on fitness programs and healthy eating. The award was accepted by Cartus Senior Vice President of Global Human Resources Amy Meichner in a ceremony in Stamford, Conn., on Feb. 11.

"At Cartus, we take a multifaceted approach to improving our employees' lives and health," Meichner said. "We believe that it makes sense to encourage employees to take care of themselves by providing amenities and opportunities that contribute to work-life balance. That's why, for example, we offer a physician assistant-staffed onsite Wellness Center, informational lunchtime seminars on topics such as breast cancer awareness and heart disease, healthy eating programs such as Weight Watchers, and fitness programs such as yoga and Zumba."

The 2011 Healthy Workplace Employer Recognition Program rewarded the efforts of Fairfield County employers who understand that a healthy workforce and a healthy workplace give them a competitive edge. The Business Council of Fairfield County was formed in 1970 by business leaders engaged in the effort to build more livable, workable communities.

"Health is a business issue," said Tanya Court, vice president, public policy, The Business Council of Fairfield County. "As costs related to health and health care escalate, business has responded in a variety of ways. By recognizing the efforts of employers to promote healthy lifestyles, we hope to serve as a catalyst for other employers in both the private and public sector to take action."
