Sonnax has again been honored for the quality of its worksite wellness programs by the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness & Sports and Vermont Department of Health. The employee-owned company was among 90 employers recognized at Vermont’s annual Worksite Wellness conference March 23 at the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center in South Burlington.
Affirming that “having the right attitude about your health is important,” Governor Philip B. Scott expressed his appreciation to the attendees for their commitment to forward-thinking wellness policies that benefit employees and employers alike. “Your dedication to creating a culture of wellbeing makes Vermont a great place to live and work.”
Ninety employers received Governor’s Excellence in Worksite Wellness Awards, of which Sonnax is a multi-time winner. Sonnax Executive Assistant Jamie Scott and Tamara Golden, Sonnax’s Driving Wellness health coach, were on hand to receive the award from Scott and Vermont Commissioner of Health Mark A. Levine.
“Sonnax has partnered with Marathon Health for over five years now to provide ongoing wellness services that support the health and wellbeing of employee owners and their spouses,” Golden said. “About 80 percent of the population participates in the wellness program, which offers insight, education and health coaching to help individuals improve their lifestyle and take control of their own health. Sonnax leaders recognize that the greatest wealth is health, and have demonstrated a commitment to support employee owners beyond their paychecks.”
Sonnax is dedicated to offering an at-work solution delivering high-quality worksite wellness that engages the employee, reduces risk, lowers cost and results in a happier, healthier workforce. It offers onsite wellness coaching, challenges and education sessions aimed at helping employees take charge of their physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing.
