The Healthy Business Council of Ohio recognized Cincinnati Public Schools as one of 119 Ohio employers for healthy worksite practices. CPS was nominated by TriHealth — CPS' Employee Wellness Works partner — and received the Gold Level Award for the large business category.
The Healthy Worksite Award recognizes Ohio employers who demonstrate a commitment to employee wellness through comprehensive worksite health promotion and wellness programs. CPS, and other applicants, were scored on the extent of its wellness program to facilitate and encourage employee health, productivity, work environment and ability to respond, adapt and pivot during the pandemic.
All applications were reviewed and evaluated using objective criteria. Four levels of high achievement were awarded in 2021 — Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. To celebrate the accomplishments of Ohio worksites and their efforts to pivot and adapt during the pandemic, a Pandemic Response Section was included in this year's extensive award application.
The online award application is available to all Ohio-based worksites from mid-August through late October each year.
CPS will be awarded as part of the Health Action Council's 2022 Conference Series at the Cleveland event on February 24, 2022.
