EMD’s safe and healthy culture led to special recognition from Health Assessment and Research for Communities. EMD is the proud winner of the Coachella Valley Workplace Wellness Award in the Safety and Environment category.
“We were very thankful to receive this award on behalf of EMD, which recognized our success in workplace wellness,” said EMD Health Education Assistant II Carol Gonzalez.
EMD places a high value on motivating safe and healthy behavior among personnel. Between Gonzalez and Safety Officer Martin Baxter, EMD is kept up to speed on the latest health competitions and safety training information. Gonzalez loves to chat about optimal nutrition and Baxter plays a mean game of air hockey.
“Winning the award motivates me to live up to the spirit of the award and further improve our programs this year,” said Baxter.
Organizations were selected based on exemplary work to protect and promote employee health and wellness in the Coachella Valley. According to HARC, winners of the Workplace Wellness Awards represent some of the best places to work in the region. We couldn’t agree more.
