Public library receives 4-star wellness rating

GREENFIELD – Hancock County Public Library stands as the only library in the state of Indiana to earn a four-star AchieveWELL certification.

Nineteen Hoosier organizations across the state have qualified for new AchieveWELL certification from the Wellness Council of Indiana. The companies were recently honored the final day of the 2017 Indiana Health and Wellness Summit in downtown Indianapolis.

Groups working toward creating a corporate culture that encourages and supports employee health through worksite wellness programs are eligible for the designation. AchieveWELL provides an independent assessment of wellness processes and is divided into three levels: Three Star, Four Star and Five Star. The standards are progressive through the Five-Star Award.

Without dictating how worksite wellness programs are conducted, the AchieveWELL process offers a clear understanding of the necessary components of successful worksite wellness and recognizes excellence in the field of health promotion. Helpful tools, templates and personal coaching are offered to those aspiring to become AchieveWELL organizations.

The AchieveWELL assessment and evaluation is available to all businesses in Indiana. The Wellness Council of Indiana is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
