The mayor’s office on Maui is being honored for a second consecutive year as one of the healthiest employers in the state by the Pacific Business News, according to a county announcement.

The recognition is part of an award program conducted by the publication, which recognizes companies that are committed to creating a healthy workplace for employees.

Maui was recognized in the large company category which is for employers of 200 or more people, according to information released by the county.

County programs aimed at improving quality of life include the “Walking on Wednesdays” initiative, health fairs, fitness classes, and other activities.


Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa said the programs were created “to help employees improve their quality of life.” He said the achievement is one that “we can all take pride in.”
