The mayor’s office on Maui will be honored today during an awards ceremony hosted by the Pacific Business News as part of the publication’s 2013 Healthiest Employers awards.

The County of Maui, Office of the Mayor, is being recognized for a second consecutive year for creating a healthy workplace for employees, according to a county announcement.

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.”
