Today, the Mississippi Business Group on Health, the Mississippi State Department of Health, and the Mississippi Business Journal announce the opening of the 2019 Recognized Healthy Employer and the 2019 Healthiest Workplace Awards application window which has a deadline of May 17th, 2019.
This year, the collaborative organizations will partner with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to utilize their innovative CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard as the basis of their process to help identify an employers use of best practices for employer health and well-being.
For the past several years, the MSDH and the State Employee Wellness Program have tested and evaluated the CDC Worksite Health Scorecard with state agencies, boards, commissions, and higher education. This year, the new and updated scorecard has been revised to include more program areas and expanded best-practices.
