“As one of the largest employers in the San Tan Valley area, we have a longstanding history of providing the necessary tools for our employees to be informed, committed, engaged, and united in their efforts to build a high quality education environment for our students and community,” said Assistant Superintendent, Dr. Mark Duplissis. “Being recognized with this award is a proud moment to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the health and well-being of our team, and only reinforces our commitment and ability to positively impact the lives of our students and families."
The qualifications for the award include attending the Healthy Arizona Worksite Program training, developing a plan to improve employee health and safety, and supporting employee health through policy and systems changes.
HAWP is a public health initiative that has been developed through a partnership between the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Maricopa County Department of Public Health. This statewide program provides Arizona employers with training, technical assistance, tools, and resources to design, implement, and evaluate worksite wellness initiatives. The Silver Award is HAWP’s third highest acknowledgement.
