Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC) has been recognized by CBIZ for its commitment to workplace health. AAMC received the Edington CBIZ Next Practice Award and Great Beginnings Award for senior and operational leadership success in implementing innovative wellbeing initiatives for employees.
Award winners are evaluated and determined by a panel of judges comprised of 12 wellbeing and human resource experts from various industries.
“We believe that if our employees are thriving in their life they will be engaged in their work and that will benefit our patients,” said Julie McGovern, vice president of Human Resources at AAMC. “We are proud to be recognized for our efforts surrounding the wellbeing of our employees who are our community’s caregivers in so many ways. It is our mission to enhance the health of the people we serve but also those who serve.”
In a press release announcing award winners, Dee Edington, founder and chairman of Edington Associates, said, “The Next Practice and Great Beginnings Award winners serve as role models for companies looking to invest time, energy and resources to make health an integrated component of their business. It’s vital to recognize those organizations seeking to make a lasting impact on their employees’ lives.”
Having an “engaged, healthy and diverse workforce” is identified in AAMC’s Vision 2020 strategic plan as a top strategic goal for the medical center. To meet this goal, AAMC launched its “WellBeing” framework designed to help employees nurture both their professional and personal wellbeing.
Through the WellBeing framework, AAMC provides a number of resources, including fitness classes, professional development programs, money management sessions and more, to help employees better their career, relationships, finances, community and overall health.
