FDL County Official Pleased With Healthy Company Designation

Fond du Lac County Director of Administration Erin Gerred says the fact that they have been named one of the healthiest companies in America for a 6th consecutive year is a testament to their employees’ participation in their wellness programs. She says they have a Wellness Committee that has been active for 12 years and has provided programs on site for employees to participate in. She says employees go through a health risk assessment annually and they are doing something about the results they get back from the assessment. She says there is a broad spectrum of tests that measures everything from high blood pressure to high cholesterol. In 2016, 72% of employees and spouses achieved a low-risk health score, which earned the County Interactive Health’s “Healthiest Companies in America” designation. Gerred says there will be a presentation on the honor at the County Board’s meeting next month.
