City of Avondale Estates Deemed One of Atlanta's Healthiest Employers

2016healthiestemployeraward

The City of Avondale Estates continued its reign as one of the 10 healthiest small employers in Atlanta, as designated by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

Out of 30 recognized healthy employers, the City was the only local government honored at a February 18 breakfast. With 39 employees, Avondale Estates placed seventh in the small company category (1 to 99 employees). City administration leaders champion the program and say continual improvements in its structure and offerings will keep bolstering associates' health and well-being. The City's Wellness Program is funded through a Georgia Municipal Association grant.

"We've worked hard to refine our associate wellness program since we started it in 2010." City Manager Clai Brown said. "It helps City associates lead healthier lifestyles and boosts work productivity, attendance and morale. We'll keep encouraging associates to take advantage of the program. The City will reap the benefits through a more energized staff and lower insurance costs."

Now in its fifth year, the Chronicle's Healthiest Employer Awards highlights the top companies making employee wellness a priority. Metro Atlanta companies take a survey that gauges employee wellness efforts, and programs are measured in six categories including commitment, programming, marketing and analysis.
