This year’s recipients from 81 worksites around the state include manufacturers, banks, utilities, municipalities, nonprofit organizations, engineering companies, medical offices and retailers.
On Wednesday, March 21, business owners, CEOs, company presidents and human resources directors from these winning organizations will receive their awards for their onsite efforts to promote physical fitness and a healthy work-life balance.
