City of Allen earns workplace health award from American Heart Association

Digital Bronze Badge from American Heart Association

City of Allen achieved national bronze-level recognition in American Heart Association’s 2020 Workplace Health Achievement Index for taking significant steps to build a culture of health in the workplace.

City of Allen is one of 776 organizations that completed the Index assessment this year, evaluating the time period of July 30, 2019 to June 30, 2020. The Index allows organizations to qualify for bronze, silver or gold level recognition based on their total Index score.

A unique feature of the Index is that it calculates an average heart health score based on American Heart Association’s seven risk factors for cardiovascular health: smoking status, physical activity, weight, diet, blood glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure. Companies receive benchmarking reports which allow them to identify potential areas of employee health improvement.

The framework of the Workplace Health Achievement Index was created to help organizations improve the health of their workforce from one year to the next.

Congratulations, City of Allen!
