Maui County Selected as Healthiest Employers Finalist
By Maui Now Staff
County of Maui was selected as a finalist for the 2012 Healthiest Employers contest, hosted by the Pacific Business News.
PBN is recognizing companies in three categories for “leading the way in creating the best wellness work programs.”
Finalists will be recognized at a Health and Wellness breakfast seminar on September 20, 2012, followed by an awards luncheon at noon at the Sheraton Waikiki, Kauai Ballroom.
Since arriving in office Mayor Alan Arakawa and Managing Director Keith Regan have initiated such health programs as “Walking On Wednesdays”, promoting healthy meals at county events and participating in a county-wide weight loss competition.
“The health and wellness of our Maui County employees is a priority of Mayor Arakawa and myself,” said Regan. “It is an honor to be recognized and we will continue to implement programs that improve the lives of our employees.”
