Coe College was recently recognized as one of the top three employers in the "greater than 750 Employee" category as part of the Corridor Worksite Wellness Awards at the Corridor Business Journal Health Care Summit.
Corridor Worksite Wellness Awards acknowledge workplaces that promote organization-wide health and wellness. There are five categories based on the size of the organization, with an additional award given to the organization with the most improved score.
The awards are determined by the Corridor Worksite Wellness Committee based on a score from an assessment made available to all employers in Linn and Johnson Counties. Non-affiliated parties are able to submit nominations on behalf of an organization, in addition to organizations being able to submit assessment on their own behalf.
This year’s assessment was changed to allow for online submissions and nominations. Organizations also had the opportunity to host members of the committee on the site.
The Coe College Wellness Committee is comprised of faculty and staff who are dedicated to promoting wellness, fitness and healthy lifestyles. The philosophy of the committee members is that wellness is much more than merely physical health, exercise or nutrition. It is the full integration of states of physical, mental and spiritual well-being. The model used on the Coe campus includes social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, occupational, intellectual and physical wellness. Each of these seven dimensions act and interact in a way that contributes to the quality of life.
