“The three organizations recognized this year are pushing the envelope to redefine health and well-being in the workplace,” says Joel Spoonheim, director of health promotion at HealthPartners. “Each has achieved measurable results and shown an unwavering commitment to helping employees lead healthier, more satisfying lifestyles.”

Harvest Land Cooperative (mid-size category): Now in the fifth year of their well-being initiative, exceptional leadership support has emphasized a focus on helping employees achieve a balanced life at both home and work. The program has created a network of support for employees looking to live a healthier lifestyle, including better eating and improved financial health to name a few.

Thirty-two organizations were nominated for the Workplace Well-being Award. Each nomination was scored based on evaluation criteria, with one “best-in-class” winner selected for each category.

The Workplace Well-being Award, which is sponsored by HealthPartners, is in its fifth year. Celebrating Minnesota’s best and brightest in employee health and well-being, these awards present an opportunity to learn from and promote workplace well-being throughout the state.
