SAC wins Healthy Workplace Award

 

SAN ANTONIO, TX (May 21, 2013) – San Antonio College won “Silver Recognition” for the 2013 Healthy Workplace Recognition Program, sponsored by the San Antonio Business Group on Health (SABGH) and the Mayor’s Fitness Council.

Dr. Robert Zeigler, college president; and Chris Dillon, Wellness Coordinator/Instructor, accepted the award. Dr. Robert Vela, Vice President for Student and Academic and Success; Dr. Conrad Krueger, Dean of Arts and Sciences; and Bill Richardson, Chair of the Kinesiology Department were also in attendance.

Mayor Julian Castro opened the ceremony with a brief speech and a sincere “thank you” to the 38 organizations that participated in the program. According to the report presented before the awards were distributed, this year the program reached 119,555 San Antonians. The pilot program began in 2010 with less than 10 participating companies/organizations. Today, the program has grown to include small and large groups and topped the charts with 38 applications.

With about 1,000 employees, SAC falls into the large group category. The Healthy Workplace Recognition Program evaluates an organization’s commitment to health and wellness for its employees including following:

  •  Does the company commit to regular physical activity for its employees?
  •  Does the company support and encourage health and wellness as part of its culture?
  •  Are there programs such as a step challenge in which employees can participate?
  • Does the company have on-site walking trails?
  • Does the company provide flexible work time for wellness activities?
  • Does the company encourage the use of stairs instead of elevators/escalators?

 

Dr. Zeigler and Dillon accepted the award on behalf of SAC.     

 “This program is important for SAC because this is only the beginning to many great things here at SAC,” Dillon said. “We have barely even scratched the surface yet!”
